Whitney Rose Delivers Honky-Tonk Take on Lesley Gore’s ‘You Don’t Own Me’: Premiere
Valentine’s Day is a wonderful holiday for many, but whether you’re happily coupled or pleasantly solo, sometimes you need to stand up and roar your independence. Originally made famous by Lesley Gore in 1963 (and made doubly famous thanks to First Wives Club in 1996), “You Don’t Own me” is a perennial pop anthem of freedom and feminist resolve, and today Billboard is sharing a wonderful new entry in the “You Don’t Own Me” covers canon courtesy of Whitney Rose. Mixing outlaw country with ’60s girl group flavor, Rose gives a spirited honky-tonk take on the classic.
Head over to Billboard to listen to “You Don’t Own Me” and read the full interview with Whitney Rose.
