The song, which is also making its official impact at Country radio today, is from her forthcoming full-length debut albumproduced by Jay Joyceand set for release in 2019 on Columbia Nashville. Listen to Somebodys Daughter here.
Of the song and video, Townes shares, It makes me so happy to have this video out in the world, telling a visual story of this song with a message that is so important to me. My hope is for people to feel empowered to recognize those around us. Weve all got a story and something were working through and I believe the little things count. Theres a lot we can learn from a kid at a lemonade stand.
An alternative acoustic version of the song also appears on Townes recently released Living Room Worktapes EP. Released earlier this year to widespread critical acclaim, Rolling Stone calls it, a stripped-down introduction to an artist with a whole lot to say, while Billboardfurthers, Her Living Room Worktapes EP is a piece of art! Her unique voice and storytelling sets her apart youll have it on repeat. Additionally, Townes is the subject of an in-depth profile at NPR Musics The Record. Calling her Nashvilles Newest Voice, writer Jewly Hight gives a rare glimpse into the early stages of Townes burgeoning career and asserts, shes an heir to Twain and Swift, Griffin and McKenna alike, as well as a potential peer to figures like Morris and Musgraves, whove built significant followings and visibility with strong, self-written material Read the full profile here.
After recently wrapping an extended run as part of Miranda Lambert and Little Big Towns Bandwagon Tour, Townes will soon travel to the U.K. for a series of fall shows as part of the CMA Songwriters Series before returning to the U.S. in November. See below for full tour details.
