On Friday (March 22), Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles released the powerful video for “I Can Do Hard Things,” focusing on female empowerment and real women sharing their stories.
The video, which Nettles described to People as “an inspiration and call to action,” features seven women speaking out about everything from sexual assault to single motherhood and caring for the disabled.
“I think there is power in community and in knowing we are not alone,” she said. “In hearing the stories of other women and owning our own story of the hard things we do, we are then able to own our power, and that is protective and healing for sure.”
Nettles also posted a photo of the women featured in the video on her Instagram, writing, “The music video for #ICanDoHardThings shares some of the stark realities that women overcome and showcases the community that is forged by the shared experience of getting through hard things. It is the hard things that not only make us stronger, but also bring us together. I can’t wait for you to meet the women in the video. Real women sharing their real stories of doing hard things. Just like you do. Every day.”
