Responding to an outpouring of fan support, Tenille Townes has released her new song “When’s It Gonna Happen.” Listen here and watch the accompanying music video here.
“I wrote this song because it’s a real and true window into my life right now and how I feel sometimes about being single. I know that if it’s something I’m feeling, then there must be others who feel the same way I do. I wanted to create something that would speak to them too!” said Townes. “I’ve shared a few pieces of the song on socials, and it has been the most encouraging and exciting thing seeing people comment and say that they feel the same way. I’m really so excited to share the rest of this song with everybody and can’t wait to sing it at the top of our lungs together on the road!”
With lyrics like “Sometimes I feel like I’m the last one standing / I look around and all my friends are falling in love,” it’s little wonder fans connected with the hope, insecurity, fear, and anticipation Townes brings to life through the driving track. “When’s It Gonna Happen” follows her vulnerable “Villain In Me,” which was called “her most authentic and raw (song) yet” (Sweety High). An otherworldly songwriter and storyteller, Townes recently took home the Canadian CMA Album of the Year Award for her debut The Lemonade Stand, as well as her third consecutive Female Vocalist of the Year trophy.
Following a headline tour of her native Canada, Townes is set for her first ever headlining trek in the U.S. as the VILLAIN IN ME TOUR gets underway later this month. The ACM Award winner will also open for Hall of Famers George Strait and Reba in February before heading to the United Kingdom for C2C in March.
