“My family didn’t have heirlooms. We had songs,” the nostalgic clip begins. Directed by Tom Campbell, the video shows Jewel remembering her upbringing fondly with scenes that pay homage to the singer’s childhood.
Jewel considers Parton one of her longtime musical heroes, partly because she felt like she could relate to the way the country legend was raised.
“As a kid growing up with an outhouse, my heroes were always Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn,” Jewel previously told Billboard. “They were the only other icons I’d heard of that were raised similarly to me. I liked that they had the courage to say, ‘This is exactly who and what the hell I am.’ So I got the courage to ask her to sing on the record, and she agreed.”
“My Father’s Daughter” is off of Jewel’s Picking Up the Pieces album, which was released on Sept. 11. Watch the video below.
