From her You Tube Channel:
"This song means more to me personally than anything I've ever written. It's the bittersweet true story of my grandparent's life together from the beginning until the end. I wrote it from the shoes of my papaw to my granny, shortly after I lost both of them. The Williams legacy side is always focused on, and I'm unbelievably proud to be in the lineage, but I didn't know Hank Williams as a grandparent. He died in 1952 and Audrey was gone before I was born. The grandparents I knew and loved and spent so much time with were Warren and June White, from a small town in Louisiana called Mer Rouge. We compiled tons of old family footage to disperse throughout this video that was shot as a live performance. It meant so much to me to make this video, I truly hope you enjoy..."
Mother daughter duo Jaymie and Kelli talk about what inspired their song "Princess.":
Kelli says, “I just graduated from high school. While in school last semester, I started working on this song idea about how many of my friends kept secrets from their parents. In between the football games or studying for tests, we are dealing with some very real life issues. When I wrote this song, I wanted to write it broad enough to include many
issues; being sexually active, accidental pregnancies, drug or alcohol abuse, fear of coming out, and more. Luckily, and maybe its because I spend so much time on the road with my mom, we have a really close relationship. At a writing session, when I read her the lyric ideas for this song, she thought it had a great message.” Jaymie says, “It
made my heart hurt to know that many kids are struggling with such heavy issues by themselves. I think many moms feel we would help our kids in any way we can, even if they feel they might be disappointing us.” Soon after, Jaymie and Kelli sat down with fellow Nebraska songwriter, Daniel Christian, and “Princess” was born. Kelli adds, “A lot
of kids feel pressure to be perfect, but nobody is, and everyone growing up goes through a lot of struggles.”
