AUSTIN, Tex. – Tween country music singer-songwriter Elle Townley impresses on her sophomore single “Fairweather Friend,” which released today across all major digital music platforms (, along with a lyric video premiering on her YouTube page. The new tune reflects on the up-and-coming native Texan’s personal interpretations and feelings about the inevitable outcome of feeble friendships, as she sings “Pretty promises don’t ever rhyme, sounds more like 3 chords and a lie…”  

“‘Fairweather Friend’ reflects my observations and experiences with challenging friendships,” said Elle. “And as many friends will come and go throughout your life, this song reinforces the value of those who stay with you, no matter what.”

Elle co-wrote the song with Nashville songwriter extraordinaire Britton Cameron (Don Williams, Jon Pardi, Dillon Carmichael), and cut the song out of Austin’s first-class Orb Recording Studios, produced by Matt Noveskey.
