Mickie James is well known by wrestling fans due to her striking and technical abilities in the ring. Her accolades in the ring are proven by her many championship reigns throughout many promotions. Many “Hardcore Country” fans may already know of her activities outside of the ring. Her career as a country music singer is often overlooked.
James is a 20-year veteran on lacing up her wrestling boots, but few know that she also laces up her cowboy boots. She started releasing music in 2010 which makes her a 9-year country musician. As of last week, she has released a music video for her new song, “I Don’t Give A.”
In her video, she brings her sassy personality to light with a tune that empowers women to stand up for themselves. She brushes off a bar patron who attempts to hit on her with a “get your hands up off my shoulder” line that strikes down unwanted advances. This track has a perfect summertime feel for those who correlate their music to seasons.
Her music highlights a strong independent woman quality that she brings to her in-ring character as well. Past songs that encompass this feeling include “Hardcore Country” and “Somebody’s Gonna Pay.” While part of Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling she incorporated “Hardcore Country” as her entrance theme song.
The “Somebody’s Gonna Pay” music video features former WWE Women’s Champion Trish Stratus as a butt-kicking bartender and James’ now husband former TNA World Heavyweight Champion – Magnus.
