Dierks Bentley decided to feature a Franklin mom and daughter, Jennifer and Sydnee Floyd, in his latest video for his song, “Woman, Amen.” Below, you see the video where Bentley shares the surprise with the two.
We spoke to Jennifer who told us, “Sydnee and I are so excited and deeply humbled that Dierks Bentley thought we were special enough to help share his song. We hope that this video touches your heart like it does ours. New life motto #WomanAmen”
This mother-daughter duo is inspiring as Sydnee was born with PFAPA, a syndrome that results in fevers and sore throats, and EDS, a condition that affects the connective tissue in her body. Single mom, Jennifer told ET online their motto is “Always give your life’s pennies away” which they do in many ways. The two have raised money for cancer research, made meals for the homeless, and more.
“Jennifer and Sydnee make everyone around them want to do more, to be better…it was an incredible honor for me to honor them,” Bentley said in a statement to ET online. “I hope that by shining a light on the completely selfless volunteer work they do, it will maybe inspire other folks to do what they can in their own communities. I was really drawn to their real-life experience, and I wanted to do a video based on real people with real struggles and real triumphs. These are the people I get to meet every day, and they are really the ones who have inspired this music.”
“Women, Amen” is the first single released from Bentley’s upcoming album The Mountain releasing later this year. Jennifer and Sydnee will join Bentley on WE Day in Los Angeles where he is set to perform “Women, Amen” on April 19th.
