Dakota Danielle showcases her burgeoning talent on her new four song EP My Mother’s Daughter and her new single from that EP, “Small Town Talk,” is available here to listen.
A note from Dakota on "Small Town Talk": This song was one that just needed to be written. Living in a town with a population of 1,600 people - it's really easy to get caught up in all the gossip. I started this song in Nashville when I was working the 10pm-6am shift at The Fontanel. I was being reflective on my high school years to present, and all of a sudden my first verse and most of the chorus was written. I brought my friend Jessilynn Kidd in on this song because I knew she would be able to relate. It was a quick and fun write for us. I decided to put this on the EP because I really connect to it. It's a song that helped me release my emotions and then move on.
