Tenille Townes has released a special new performance video of Bill Withers’ iconic song, “Lean On Me,” today as a symbol of support and unity during these difficult times. Recorded remotely from their homes, the video features performances from fellow country artists Abby Anderson, Kassi Ashton, Keelan Donovan, Alex Hall, Adam Hambrick and Caylee Hammack.
Of the video, Townes shares, “These crazy times right now make me so grateful for my friends, for music and the way we are still all connected. It brought me so much joy hearing everybody’s voices come together on this song and it’s my hope that it brings people a little joy and comfort out there when they hear it. We really all do need somebody to lean on, especially right now. It was really fun to sing this song together across the distance!”
The video follows the release of Townes’ new EP, Road to the Lemonade Stand, which was released earlier this year on Columbia Nashville (stream/purchase here). With the EP, Townes is inviting fans to join her on the journey to her highly anticipated debut album, The Lemonade Stand. Produced by Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Little Big Town), the EP features five songs written by Townes including her current single, “Jersey On The Wall (I’m Just Asking),” which was recently Gold certified in Canada, as well as a rendition of Keith Urban’s “Stupid Boy.”
