INTRIGUERS MAKING WAVES: TENILLE TOWNES
7/31/20

By Holly Gleason

With the charisma and wide-open heart of early Melissa Etheridge, Townes has lit up stages on tours with Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris and Patty Griffin.

Her Big Hearts for Big Kids Foundation has raised in excess of $2m—earning her the Canadian Country Music Association’s Humanitarian of the Year award at the tender age of 18. But what makes the guitar-brandishing Everygirl stand out is her songwriting.

Lemonade Stand, produced by Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Cage the Elephant, Little Big Town), is the blast of hip, older-sister wisdom everyone needs. With the breathtaking tribute “Jersey on the Wall,” the empathetic “Somebody’s Daughter” or the no-freaking-way “Holding Out for the One,” Townes brings a heaping dose of Faith Hill kindness and Shania Twain self-respect without sacrificing her sense of humor. With its sweeping, gleaming beats, Stand is as frisky as it is evolved.
