Owens reacts to the first week success: “’Stand With Me’ is one of those songs you have the honor of writing. My co-writers and I knew it was special even as we crafted it, and I’m thankful to know so many listeners think so too. I hope this means we’ll all be working to break down the barriers between us and learn to stand together.”
Born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi, a degenerative eye condition left Ginny completely blind by the tender age of three. As her vision diminished, her love of music and the piano expanded, and Ginny discovered songwriting as a window into her unseen world. The unique perspectives inspired by her vision impairment have resulted in inspirational lyrics paired with her diverse musicianship to afford her a space on an even more diverse set of stages, including the Sundance Film Festival, Lilith Fair and the White House, and recordings that transcend genre expectations.
