Tenille Townes “Girl Who Didn’t Care” Song Review

Tenille Townes introduced herself to the world with emotive Living Room Worktapes. Since then, the Canadian-born songstress has played with artists Miranda Lambert, Alan Jackson, Dierks Bentley, Little Big Town, and soon joining Brothers Osborne. Townes is back with inspirational “Girl Who Didn’t Care.”

Released via Columbia Nashville in partnership with RCA Records, “Girl Who Didn’t Care” fuses a complementary blend of pop and contemporary country backed by poignant percussion, cutting-edge guitar, and Townes’ highly recognizable vocal makings. The songstress sings of early childhood dreams and the realization that it doesn’t matter what other people think about you.

“Girl Who Didn’t Care,” written with David Pramik and Steph Jones, marks the start of a new chapter for the “Jersey On The Wall” singer + songwriter. Almost a full year after the release of her debut The Lemonade Stand which recently won Country Album of the Year at the 50th Annual JUNO Awards, Townes is somebody that your little girl should look up to.

“Something happens to all of us at some point in our lives when we start noticing the cracks. We start realizing that we care about what somebody else thinks. That we want to belong and be accepted, and we’re scared we won’t be,” Townes says about the new song, “We start measuring our worth against everything else around us. Childhood innocence doesn’t just wait around. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. But the wonder? I think that’s always a part of us if we want to remember it.”

Townes shared a series of memories on her Instagram to constitute the song’s release including a montage of performances from then to now, and a prime interview from her 9th birthday party.
