Tenille Townes Brings Homeless Girl Scouts to the Studio for ‘Somebody’s Daughter’ Re-recording [LISTEN]
Tenille Townes offers up a new version of her single, "Somebody's Daughter," that features backup vocals from members of Troop 6000, a Girl Scouts initiative based in Tennessee that serves girls without permanent housing. The moving rendition of Townes' hit takes it to the next level of meaning, as a chorus of young girl's voices echo the up-and-coming country star throughout the song. Readers can press play above to hear the song.
Recorded in Nashville's Sound Emporium Studios, the tune was produced by Daniel Tashian and features 16 members of Troop 6000, who earned musician badges as they learned about recording and producing during the process. Townes says the experience was powerful, with a group of eager and engaged girls, all of whom have either been homeless or are currently without permanent housing.
"...When they sang, that just really melted me, hearing their voices on that 'Somebody's Daughter' line was something pretty special, especially knowing that they all really do have quite a remarkable story." Townes shares of the time she spent with the troop members. "These girls have more courage than I think most people, in their entire lives, have to find, and I look up to them so very much."
Townes will donate proceeds from this recording to the Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee's Troop 6000 Initiative. The track is available for download here.
