One of our 2019 Artists to Watch, Tenille Townes has released her second single today and “White Horse” is not only relatable but shows a different side to the “Somebody’s Daughter” singer-songwriter. The track, penned by Townes along with Jeremy Spillman and Daniel Tashian is a twist on love songs and managing expectations that we are taught as a child. Although it may not turn out as the fairytales do, the song is uplifting and the female is thankful that she is not looked at as a prize, rather a mystery, proving her self worth.
“I’d been waiting on a white horse, to take me away on a sunset ride / But you showed up on a dark horse / At the Cinderella midnight—just in time / Maybe, not the way I was dreaming of / But you rode in and won my love / And now I’m finally on the right course / Who needs a white horse?”
“White Horse” is a song about how love can look a little bit differently than we might expect it to. I think we grow up in our society completely surrounded by that fairy tale idea of what love should be, but maybe love is even bigger than that,” Townes says of the song. “I think it’s important to be open hearted and to push the boundaries of what society might build up in our expectations. I love that this song stands strongly in the idea that love isn’t always about the ivory towers and the roses.”
Townes is currently traveling the country as support on Dierks Bentley’s ‘Burning Man Tour’ which most recently made its stop at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena and will head to the New York City area on August 2nd, at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Amphitheater.
