Tenacious Country Artist Annie Vander Releases New Single “The Daddy Tree”

Latest Release is a Special Father’s Day Song to Honor Her Dad and All Dads 

NASHVILLE, TENN. – Tenacious country artist Annie Vander honors her father and all fathers in her new single The Daddy Tree. This song is now available on all streaming platforms including SpotifyApple Music, and more. 


After releasing her powerful anthem Rock In My Shoe, Annie Vander is surprising her fans, once more, showing another side of her artistry with her brand new nostalgic tune, The Daddy Tree. This song, which was written to deliver an emotional pull at the heartstrings while keeping things light and fun, is relatable for every father and their daughter out there. It’s a good-feeling, upbeat reggae-style song that was inspired by her Dad’s favorite “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” by Bobby McFerrin.


It tells the tales of Annie’s childhood days that are crafted with love and support from her father. The song features sentiments of reflecting on her childlike stubbornness from stealing cookies from the cookie jar to believing you know it all. It is paired with gratitude that comes from growing up and being able to realize just how much your father loves you “as time rolls on.” 


Written by Annie and David Norris and also produced by David, The Daddy Tree captures an essence of love through her infectious lyrics and touch of southern charm. It explores the unbreakable bond between a father and daughter, including cherished memories with an instrumental flair. Annie shared, “I wanted a song that focused on a daddy-daughter relationship and didn’t want it to be too slow, but wanted something fun that could also deliver a punch in the heart, in a good way.”


As if it couldn’t get any better, this song was a surprise to her father, Russell. Annie kept the song a secret until she had the opportunity to perform it for him on stage last year in Nashville during CMA Music Festival at 615 LIVE. “It was something I think we both will never forget and who knows, maybe one day it will end up being someone’s daddy-daughter song at a wedding.”


Annie is gearing up to release more music throughout the year. With previous songs already released to country radio, including her chart-topping singles He Himself & Him and Falling Into Nashville, Annie’s songs have reached over a quarter of a million streams just on Spotify. She continuously tours and plays coffee shops, private shows, as well as numerous fairs and festivals including CMA Music Festival, Eveland Access Summerfest in Iowa and Plymouth Fall Falooza in Wisconsin where she was on the bill with award-winning country artist John Michael Montgomery. She is also currently nominated for “Best Performance in a Music Video” and “Female Video of the Year” in this year’s Josie Music Awards which will take place Sunday, October 27, 2024 in Nashville.
