Whiskey Riff Song of the Week: “White Horse” by Tenille Townes

I’ve been loving every song Tenille Townes has released.

The latest is a fast-paced, nontraditional, love song called “White Horse,” which is also your Song of the Week. It’s a great reminder that life ain’t always a fairytale.

Written by Tenille, Daniel Tashian and Jeremy Spillman, “White Horse” continues to cement Townes as one of the brightest young stars in country music.

Townes said, “‘White Horse’ is a song about how love can look a little bit differently than we might expect it to. I think we grow up in our society completely surrounded by that fairy tale idea of what love should be, but maybe love is even bigger than that. I think it’s important to be open-hearted and to push the boundaries of what society might build up in our expectations. I love that this song stands strongly in the idea that love isn’t always about the ivory towers and the roses.”
