The inspiration behind “Princess” came from the Royal wedding back in 2018 when Bridgette Tatum commented “You ain’t a princess until you marry a prince,” and from there “Princess” was born. Everyone knows a girl who thinks she is a princess, even though she is not. This song is about a girl just like that, a girl who wants to be something she is not instead of embracing the life she already has. “If there is anything I’d want my fans to take away from it is to love who you are, where you come from, and know that no matter what someone loves you for YOU,” stated Dallas.
“…You ain’t a princess
You’re just a dirt road debutant
There ain’t no prince here just a bunch of boys in some pickup trucks
Yeah the closest to the crown you’ll ever get or ever got
Is at the bar takin double shots
You ain’t a princess
You’re just a small town, hang around, never leavin hot mess…”
“‘Princess” is by far one of my favorite songs I have ever been a part of. Not only did I co-write it with two of my favorite songwriters, Bridgette Tatum and Nancy Deckant; but out of all the songs in my live set, it is the one I look forward to playing the most,” exclaimed Dallas Remington. “There has been a lot of work and planning behind releasing this song. As a team, we waited until what we feel like is the perfect time to release this song, and three years and two recorded versions later, the time is NOW! I hope everyone loves this song as much as I do. Get your sass ready, roll your windows down and rock out!”
“The day we wrote the song, Dallas walked into the room with the idea “you ain’t no princess,” after seeing something similar Bridgette had posted on her Instagram account. Bridgette started playing a hook on the guitar and the song came together like lighting after that,” shared co-writer Nancy Deckant. “Sometimes when a song wants to be heard, it happens that way.”
