Being a parent seems tough.
You can tell deep down that Martina McBride lovers her family and very much her daughters. Martina has been releasing songs about her daughters for years. Now it seems those daughters have grown up a bit and Martina’s latest song takes an affectionate yet realistic look at the life as the parent of teenage daughters.
Teenage Daughters is funny for me. I’m not the parent of a teenage daughter at this point, but I’ve heard the stories of how teenagers can get into a little mischief. In the song – co-written by Martina and The Warren Brothers – Martina sings about how she remembers the days her daughters and her got along all the time. When kids are growing up they need their folks a little more.
Everything changes when those kids reach the dreaded teen years though.
Rolling their eyes when they think you’re old and uncool. Being super sweet when they want some cash or a new pair of jeans. These are just a few of the things teenagers do to their poor parents. Of course I’m sure Martina was never that way when she was a teenage daughter.
Teenage Daughters is a good song. I don’t really remember hearing a song cover this topic before. Martina as always nails the vocals. The melody is fresh to and by the end of the song you find yourself moving along to the beat and singing along. It’s a mid tempo song that has a good pop-country feel.
I think this could be a hit for Martina.
