Credit: Amy Richmond Exclusively Premieres Music Video NASHVILLE, Tenn. – In a heartfelt tribute dedicated to those who served, rising songstress Jenny Tolman releases her newest single and music video for "Timbuktu," available everywhere today. exclusively premiered the music video noting that "the moving visual tells the story of a young family as they work together through the husband’s deployment and his mental health upon returning home. As the couple appears as if they could be both in present day or the 1950s, and the video is interspersed with vintage footage of men and women heading off to war as loved ones say farewell, 'Timbuktu' speaks to what decades of military families have persevered through."

Nashville native, Jenny Tolman is your "ride or die" kind of artist. Her songs will make audiences laugh, cry, stomp their feet, clap their hands and shake their heads in wonder at her inciteful, story-like lyrics. With a razor-sharp wit and throwback sound, she is this generation’s Roger Miller – just as funny, just as flashy, but from a decidedly feminine perspective. Her sophomore album, Married in a Honky Tonk – which made Wide Open Country’s list of the Most Anticipated Country Albums of 2022 – was released with critics proclaiming it "stunning" (American Songwriter) and permeated with "in-your-face humor and witty lyrics that have become increasingly rare in country music" (Billboard). From curating the first all-female country music festival, "Cowgirls at The Cowboy," at the world famous Million Dollar Cowboy Bar, featured on CMT’s Hot 20 Count-down, to garnering a viral music video for her single, "Watering the Weeds," Tolman continues to prove she has the talent and work ethic to become a country music powerhouse.
