Tenille Townes lives in the moment with new song, “The Last Time”


Tenille Townes comments on the impermanence of life in his new song, “The Last Time”. Co-written by Townes with Ben Goldsmith and Gordie Sampson, the track finds the singer emphasizing the temporary nature of life and relationships and the importance of holding on to special moments.

Accompanied by an acoustic guitar, Townes begins the song by telling the story of a mother who drops her son off at school every day. Before she knows it, however, the son is 16 and starting to drive to school himself. Townes then launches into the chorus, singing how “the last time” can come sooner than you think.

“Everybody remembers the first time / ‘Cause the heart knows they’ll never be like this again / But the thing about the last time / Is you don’t know it’s the last time til ‘unless it is,’ she sings.

She continues this theme in the second verse, singing in the first person of her grandfather’s disappearance. In the final verse, she ties the message to a relationship, vowing to enjoy every moment with a love interest before “the last time” arrives.

“I wrote this song thinking about how we put a frame around the memory of a first time…and how sometimes the last time can surprise us,” Townes says of the song on social media. “Here for all your nostalgic feelings!! Bring ’em on!”

Townes made her memorable debut in mainstream country music in 2018 with her #1 song “Somebody’s Daughter.” She then released her first full album, The lemonade standin June 2020. “The Last Time” follows recent releases “Girl Who Didn’t Care” (2021) and “When’s It Gonna Happen” (2022).
