(NASHVILLE, TN; March 6, 2020) – Just in time for National Women’s Day this Sunday, award-winning, breakout artist Tenille Townes kicked off National FFA Week last week with a new campaign that celebrates 50 Years of Women in FFA. Joining Ram Truck Brand, (a committed sponsor of the National FFA) to honor the anniversary, Townes wrote the original track “In My Blood,” available now.
The video features lyrics that speak to the core values of the special milestone: women, hard work, courage and integrity. Refinery29 included “In My Blood” in their ‘Best New Songs of the Season’ list, while Rolling Stone praised, “Driven by acoustic guitar strums and a welcoming roots-rock groove, ‘In My Blood’ features the Alberta-born Townes singing about feeling ‘at home under the sky’ along with the passed-along traditions of hard work and forging a connection to the land.”

Townes shares, “It is an honour to have written this song with the heart of women in agriculture in mind. These are the women who inspire and shape all of us and it makes me think of the strong women in my life I grew up looking up to. The ones who made me believe anything is possible. Their legacy is something we get to keep building upon and that’s what I was dreaming about writing this song.”
Produced and recorded in Nashville by an all-female team, Townes released the official music video on Feb. 24 to help kick off National FFA Week. Spotlighting the daily moments of females in agriculture, the video also features Townes recording the song in the studio. The revealing imagery shows female farmers of all ages evoking the spirit of the meaning behind the lyrics. With history between Ram and FFA beginning in 1953, Ram recognizes women in agriculture and has committed to help FFA amplify this important message.
