Tenille Townes just dropped her new single, “Girl Who Didn’t Care,” and it boasts the kind of message we all need to hear right now. 

The two-time ACM Award winner challenges listeners to take control of their own destiny by brushing off the naysayers. Recalling a time with she looked “at the world like a big old canvas,” Townes encourages fans to be fearless and unapologetically themselves, despite what others may say or think. 

“I wanna worry a little less, love a little more/ Barefoot in a dress, dancing on the floor/ Like I did, back when, when I was younger/ Making up the songs, playing in my head/ Didn’t matter what anybody said/ Didn’t need to be like all the others/ Giant dreams and wild hair/ Yeah, I know she’s still in there somewhere/ Is the girl who didn’t care,” she sings on the chorus backed by an infectious beat.

Townes co-wrote the empowering anthem, alongside David Pramik and Steph Jones.

She took to Instagram to share her excitement over the release on Friday morning, writing, “I hope this song makes you guys smile and think of how you used to see yourself and everything around you before the world and society and somebody else changed your idea of it. I hope you sing along remembering that you are brave and important and loved and that there’s always a little wonder waiting for you. And to the little dreamers listening out there, thank you for always inspiring me and making the world brighter. So thankful to everybody a part of creating and lifting this song up. Sooooooooo excited to get to share this one.”

“Girl Who Didn’t Care” is the lead single from Tenille Townes’ forthcoming album, which is the follow-up to 2020’s The Lemonade Stand. Click above to listen.
