Dailor issued this statement: "Michele Caplinger is our Grammys Georgia representative. There was an awards ceremony for some members of Congress that have been working on a comprehensive bill that modernizes royalty rates for music creators and producers, engineers, etc. Little Big Town was also honored for their many years of advocacy. We were there representing our fellow songwriters and musicians and speaking with congressmen, senators and law makers to share our personal stories to be in the forefront of their minds as this bill could be up before the senate within the next two weeks! Super exiting to be part of this long overdue historical change to the way music creators are compensated for their work."

Daddy's Got A Shotgun Is a cute song about an overprotective father who will stop at no cost to watch over and protect his daughter from this new guy she is seeing. This song idea came to life in Nashville, Tennessee, it was the very first song on the record that we wrote and recorded so I really wanted it to be the single. Me and my co-writers we're talking that day about how I liked being down in Nashville alone and I told them I really loved it! While digging for inspiration for writing the conversation later went on to ask if my Dad was ever protective of me in my relationships. I said No matter what age you are I think your always going to be your Daddy's little girl. Right after I said that my co-writer Clay Mills sang the first line of "Daddy's Got A Shotgun" we all looked at each other and we're like this is such a unique line let's do this! I had such an amazing time writing and recording this song. We put up a well-suited music video for this song as well that I think is really funny.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen and watch for yourself and learn more about Jaclynright here!
