Circus Girl is the fifth studio album from Australian country music artist Sherrié Austin and was released independently on November 15, 2011.[1]

Background[edit]

The album is portrayed as a group of taled analyzed by a powerful female, about females, and on behalf of females. Austin felts that the work was something her female supporters have been requesting for years.[2][3][4]

"The last few years I had been complaining about the fact that there weren’t any females speaking to women above the age of 30, so I started thinking about how I was writing my songs and came up with the idea for “Friday Night Girls" ...I wanted to write a three-minute song with every Sex and the City episode that had ever existed, so I did. I quickly noticed that the women in my audiences loved it and so I switched my songwriting focus for a while to concentrate on that audience, who are my peers, to speak to them,” says Austin.[2]

The final track on the album, "Naughty or Nice", was co-written by Shane Stevens.[5]
