Illinois native and country singer-songwriter Dakota Danielle reveals her most impactful moments in life with her debut EP My Mother’s Daughter
Nashville, TN — The entirely self-penned project is a reflection of Danielle’s past and touches on her healing and growing process following the loss of her mother last year.
My Mother’s Daughter features the upbeat “City” premiered by Nashville Noise, the relatable “Small Town Talk” premiered by Roughstock, the nudge toward self-acceptance “Maria” premiered by Vents Magazine, and the deeply emotional “Growing Old,” Danielle’s sole source of expression as she emerged from her devastating loss. Produced by Robbie Artress (Chris Stapleton, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, For King & Country) and John Naclerio (My Chemical Romance).
Danielle is staged to perform “Growing Old” on WSMV’s Today in Nashville on May 13.

The small town sensation broke into the country scene with the release of her debut single “One Church” last year, which quickly and independently garnered over 56k streams on Spotify. After the video premiered on The Country Network, Dakota followed with her sophomore single “Forever,” which led to a series of school speaking engagements, inspiring and encouraging students to boldly pursue their dreams.
A drive to share her lyrics and passion for music lands the 26-year-old on stage weekly, including a recent performance with Easton Corbin.
Capitalizing on her momentum from 2018, Danielle dove into writing and recording as a means to move forward and follow the dream her mother strongly supported. This spring, Danielle launched her Bandtwango campaign and was able to fund My Mother’s Daughter through the support of her fans. The collection of songs are from her first chapter in life — the small hometown, an adolescent journey to self-acceptance, a move to the big city and one of life’s hardest tragedies. This journey to self-discovery offers fans a transparent opportunity to learn exactly who Danielle is — her mother’s daughter.
