The music video for “Strong” illustrates the adversity many women face and how they overcome it. Depicted in the video are two women, one a struggling high school student, the other a single mom with two young kids, who choose to push through their hardships to become the strong women they hope they can be. The “Strong” clip also features stellar performance footage from Wright and a photo gallery of real-life women who have succeeded in transforming their lives. To view the video, go to YouTube or go to CMT.com.
“We’re really excited about the new “Strong” video,” said Wright. “We’re happy to have a song out that feels timely and relatable. A song that deals candidly with the joys and challenges of life. A song to empower women. A song that hopefully manages to connect with my fans and inspire them.”
“Strong,” co-written by Wright, Deric Ruttan and Melissa Peirce, is one of ten tracks on her new 11-song album, which were co-written by Wright. Recorded in both Ontario and Nashville, STRONG was produced by Jason Barry (Dean Brody, Terri Clark, Jason Blaine), Eric Silver (Neal McCoy, Ricochet) and Danick Dupelle (Emerson Drive).
