Miranda Lambert Praises Tenille Townes’ ‘Somebody’s Daughter’ Video
When Canadian singer Tenille Townes first emerged with her debut single "Somebody's Daughter," the song's honesty took many by storm. Now that she's added a video to drive her point home visually, she's winning fans in high places.
The video, which details how life's circumstances may take us in unexpected places — and that the woman you see panhandling on the corner of your neighborhood streets is and always has been "somebody's daughter" — hit home with Miranda Lambert, whom she toured with this year, and who posted praise on her Instagram account.
"Love this girl and this song," Lambert simply noted, with a re-gram of Townes' post announcing the video.
Townes herself was giddy regarding the video, which brings to life the circumstances behind the scenes of a theoretical woman whose circumstances have taken a wrong turn. The narrative shows a little girl playing with her father, interspersed with cryptic clips of the woman the girl becomes, walking the streets and navigating what has become of her life.
Homelessness is a cause near and dear to Townes' heart, as she's been involved with fundraising for a temporary homeless shelter for teens called Sunrise House in Grande Prairie, Alb., Canada. In February she shared that over $1.5 million had been raised in nine years.
