Keeping up with a busy premiere day, we are teaming up with Country artist Dakota Danielle for the release of her new EP ‘My Mother’s Daughter.’ We are first to bring you a song called “Maria” from the project, a sweet new track that blends both her Country roots with early 00s pop-esque harmonies.
About the song, Danielle comments:
This song is about being a girl that is like one of the boys. Growing up I always wore sweatpants and a t-shirt. I do not have any brothers (I am an only child), BUT I did hang around my neighbors and cousins a lot playing kickball, baseball, basketball, tennis, etc. It wasn’t until 5th or 6th grade my mom finally got me to start wearing some “girly” clothes. I remember as I got older I still never enjoyed wearing a lot of make-up or being fashionable. I was and still am all about being comfortable! This song was written based on my memories of having crushes that did not like me back. I remember at times I would look at some of my friends and wish I could be/look like them. As I got older I learned to accept and embrace who I was. I decided to put this on the EP because this song brings me back to another important milestone in my life of beginning to figure out and embrace who I was as a person.
