“Teenage Daughters”, the new country single by Martina McBride off of her upcoming Republic Nashville debut album release, is a fairly autobiographical tune, considering McBride herself is the mother of three daughters , two of which are now teenagers.
Considered her gutsiest career move to date, “Teenage Daughters”, co-written by McBride herself and The Warren Brothers, in just 45 minutes, is a new take on country music; A common topic of parents trying to deal with their children, who just moments ago it seemed, loved their parents unconditionally and thought their parents to be their best friends, navigate into adulthood, while reflecting back on their own lost teenage years, while the teenagers just wish their parents would disappear. Something we can
all look back on and remember from our own years of being a teen!
This song is a well told story, from both mom and dad’s outlook. The music has a great hip, modern feel, that settles into a comfortable rhythm and groove of an electric guitar.
“Teenage Daughters” is not one of those typical country songs with a sentimental ending but a honest description of what it means to be a parent watching your child grow up, especially during those difficult, in-between teenage years, that can drive parent’s to drink.
Just recently released, Teenage Daughters is the Hot Shot debut at #40 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and is already climbing the iTunes Top Country Songs Chart.
Airplay potential can only be assumed to be high since this is a song that everyone can relate to. With lyrics like “I ain’t complaining but I’m tired, so I’m just saying what I think/If we’re being honest, then honestly, I think I need a drink.” and “She rolls her eyes when I’m funny, but she’s sweet when she wants money and her freedom.” Mom’s, dad’s, siblings, teenagers themselves can all sing along and probably identify with the song.
“Teenage Daughters” is getting rave reviews as Martina McBride’s best song in years.
McBride’s much anticipated new album, which will include Teenage Daughters, handpicked by McBride as the album’s first single, is due out this fall and she has written seven more original tracks for the album.
This album will be McBride’s first on her new label, Republic Nashville,
McBride has sold 18 million albums; This is the first where she has written the majority of the material herself.

I ain’t complaining
But I’m tired, so I’m just saying
What I think
And if we’re being honest
Than honestly I think I need a drink
My baby’s growing up
She thinks she’s falling all in love
And that I hate her
At seventeen, she’s just like me when I was seventeen
So I don’t blame her
What are we gonna do?
What are we gonna do about it?
Remember when we use to be
Everything they ever need
We had them believing we were cool
It’s like it happened over night
We’re always wrong, their always right
We use to be the one’s breaking the rules
Now we’re just mothers, we’re just fathers of
She rolls her eye’s when I’m funny
But she’s sweet when she wants money and her freedom
Oh my god, she’s got a car
Swears they wont go far
And I wish I believed ‘em
Their beautiful, wild and free
Everything we wish we could be
But their still crazy
Oh you know, the make us crazy
Yeah Teenage Daughters
I ain’t complaining
But I’m just tired, so I’m saying
What I think
If we’re being honest
Than honestly, I think I need a drink
