|NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Emerging singer, songwriter and performer Tenille Townes is debuting a new version of her single “Somebody’s Daughter” today. Stream/purchase the track HERE.
Produced by Daniel Tashian (Kacey Musgraves, Lucie Silvas) and recorded at Nashville’s Sound Emporium Studios, the new rendition was recorded with Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee’s Troop 6000, an initiative that serves girls without permanent housing. 16 girls from Troop 6000 came into the studio with Townes to earn their musician badge and learn about music and recording. All of Tenille’s proceeds from this version of the song will support Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee’s Troop 6000 initiative.
In celebration of the release, Townes will be the featured guest/performer at the annual Girl Scouts Luncheon that will take place on September 24 in Nashville, TN. Townes will also be making her debut performance on NBC’s “TODAY” Tuesday, July 23 at 9 A.M. ET in honour of the new release.
“Somebody’s Daughter” was initially released last year via Columbia Nashville and is Townes first single at country radio. The track will appear on Townes’ debut album, produced by Jay Joyce (Carrie Underwood, Little Big Town, Eric Church). Recently released tracks “White Horse” and “I Kept The Roses” premiered alongside an Amazon Original cover of Keith Urban’s smash-hit “ Stupid Boy.”
