Top Country Pick: Meghan Patrick ‘Things I Shouldn’t Say’

Things I Shouldn’t Say – Meghan Patrick | Featured on the Top Country Songs playlist

In September of 2019, Meghan Patrick dropped her ‘Wild As Me’ EP, a collection of new songs she feels are the most honest and raw music she has made yet. Now hot off the heals of her first headlining ‘Wild As Me’ tour across Ontario with special guests Sons of Daughters, Meghan just went to radio with her second single from the EP titled “Things I Shouldn’t Say” along with a new lyric video.

“Those who know me know I speak my mind, even if it’s something some people think I “shouldn’t say.” If I want something, I go and get it, and that’s for relationships as much as my career. I feel like somewhere along the line it became not ok for women to speak freely about their sexuality within their music or about being the aggressor in an intimate situation, especially in country music. I wanted to change that. There’s nothing wrong with saying you want someone or that you desire their touch or their affection, and that’s what I wanted to say in this song.”
