De Zondag Flix van vandaag komt van de winnaar van American Idol 2016: Trent Harmon. “There’s A Girl” is één van zijn favoriete songs, we vinden het terug op zijn – naar hemzelf vernoemde – debuut EP uit december 2016.

Hoewel de titel rept over één girl, waren er meerdere dames en relaties betrokken bij het tot stand komen van deze track. Hierover zei Trent ooit in een interview het volgende:

They weren't all great; the song is upbeat and happy, but they weren't all great — just like anybody. You get dumped, and you dump people yourself

…I remember the day that I wrote it: We were writing a really sad song, a ballad. It was terrible. It was a horrible song; it was just boring. I said, “Let's just write it happy. Let's flip all this and kind of make fun of me and make fun of myself for all the stupid stuff I did,” and it worked.

Trent Harmon over de inspiratie voor “There’s A Girl”
Trent Harmon | "There's A Girl"

Why would we drive six hundred miles one way?
Blow through cash that we ain’t made
Get tattoos
Wash our trucks
Push and press our luck

Why would we ask when we know we can’t dance?
Show our hands
And change our plans
Lose our minds
Break our hearts
And learn to play guitar

Why does any man do anything in the whole damn world?
‘Cause there’s a girl
‘Cause there’s a girl
