On October 29th, rising star Kane Brown’s first daughter was born. On November 1st, just three days after the birth of Kingsley Rose, he released the heartfelt tribute, “For My Daughter”, written in the style of a letter for his little girl. “I wrote this song when I found out we were officially going to become parents. I meant every word, and cannot wait to watch her grow up,” Brown shared in a press release.”
He first teased the song on October 7th, explaining to fans that it would be released as soon as his daughter was born. There was an immediate response: 7,000 comments and counting on the first teaser. For the past 24 hours, Brown has been trending on iTunes, listeners eagerly awaiting the arrival of the track.
It did not disappoint. The song is co-written by Brown with frequent collaborator Chase McGill and songwriting legend Tom Douglas, and the verses are like a conversation just between Brown and his daughter.
“And not just say I love you but show you what it means/I grew up without a dad, I’m gonna be the best one I can be,” he sings on the first verse. The chorus is where he promises Kingsley that he’s going to break the cycle and drive down his path, telling her that history doesn’t have to repeat itself.
The production on “For My Daughter” is stunning. The song opens with swelling harmonic fiddles and guitar, and it transcends through the verses and choruses. It’s produced by Dann Huff, who has mastered the sound of 2019 style neo-country. It works wonderfully paired with the content of the song, as to let the lyrics and story shine the most throughout.
“For My Daughter” is the most personal, confessional song Brown’s released, and yet there’s nothing too on-the-nose about it. It’s touching, thoughtful & just the right amount of personality mixed with universality. This song may or may not become a radio hit, but it will always be the first song Brown wrote for Kingsley, and that has priceless value and longevity.
