Kaitlin Butts Highlights Storytelling Skills With “What Else Could She Do”

Kaitlin Butts What Else

Oklahoma native Kaitlin Butts is storming strong with her new release What Else Could She Do, her first album in seven years. The seven songs of this album each weave vivid tales, all different from each other. Each song on the album tells a story about women going through hardships and difficult times. Most importantly, these songs are about strength, courage, and resilience. “I don’t think that life is all that pretty sometimes, and it comes with pain and pushing through hard times, being stagnant, going through the motions, not knowing what to do, or just being flat out angry with whatever life has put on your plate,” states Kaitlin on the intention behind the album.

Song after song features Kaitlin Butts’ signature sound of a gritty melody paired with fiery vocals. The title track of What Else Could She Do tells a story of a woman who ran away to chase dreams and works hard to make it through each day. “Bored If I Don’t” tells the story of an affair. A young woman who married young seeks thrills outside of her marriage, knowing that her husband doesn’t deserve the deceit. “Blood”, released as a single earlier this year, is about familial strife. She wrote the song to cope with her feelings regarding her parents’ divorce. Also released as a single earlier this year “It Won’t Always Be This Way” has an edgy Western rock sound. The song refers to overcoming adversity when the odds are against you.

Kaitlin Butts is proud of the stories she’s told in this album. “I see myself in all of these women in these stories. I see these women in my friends and family all around me going through divorce, abuse, infidelity, financial instability, addiction, generational trauma, family issues, and life-altering tough times, but somehow are still resilient and come out on the other side okay,” Kaitlin says. The stories she tells touch everyone in their own way, and we recommend you give What Else Could She Do a listen. Stream it below!
