Daughter

Album: Big Day in a Small Town (2016)
  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • This vengeful duet with Kacey Musgraves is the closest to a standard country song on Big Day in a Small Town.
  • Lyrically, this is about a sassy woman who wishes a bit of karmic justice on an ex who mistreated her.

    I hope you have a daughter
    And I hope that she's a fox
    Daddy's little girl, just as sweet as she is hot
  • The song was penned by Clark with Jessie Jo Dillon and Jeremy Spillman. Clark recalled during Taste of Country Nights how Dillon came up with the concept after witnessing a man being a sleazeball at a Nashville bar. "She said 'I hope this happens to him, and that happens to him,'" the singer said. "And I said, 'You know, I just hope he has a daughter some day.'"
