Yorkton country artist Jackie Guy is releasing her latest single to radio Sept. 22.
‘I Did It Anyway’ is the sixth single from Guy's third full-length album I Did It Anyway. It is a song about perseverance and creating against all odds.
"When you start to chase a dream, you begin that journey with a lot of support at your side,” she writes in a release. “You experience the highs and the lows of that dream and notice most days the climb is steeper than you anticipated and the levelling off doesn’t seem to come as quickly as you hoped.
“Those initially on board slowly start to slip away, not because they care little about you but because watching you struggle and fall becomes difficult to watch. They want to save you from that seemingly inevitable heartbreak, but one problem remains.
“Although you also want to rid yourself of that passion at times in order to protect your heart, you can’t. The truth is, that dream was never theirs. It was yours. It is yours. So you persevere, move forward and you do it anyway."
