Wednesday night, NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” had a decidedly familial feel just in time for Father’s Day. Bigger Picture Group artist Rachel Bradshaw joined her famous footballer dad, Terry Bradshaw, for an interview and performance of her self-penned song “Everything A Daddy Won’t Say.” “I love teasing Terry Bradshaw,” said Leno, who has had Terry as a guest on the program a whopping 48 times, “but I’m thrilled that he’s chosen our show to perform on television for the first time ever with his daughter.”
After a high-spirited interview, the father-daughter duo alternated verses of the tender ballad with standout lyrics including “’Cause there’s a time for holding on and a time for letting go/But those tears in his eyes that he tries to hide and wipe away/That says all the things/Says everything a daddy won’t say.” Rachel and Terry ended the gorgeous song with an embrace and an “I love you.”
“I wrote this song with two of my great friends and it took a few tears and laughs to finish it. But in the end it was so beautiful, and I was so proud of what we had created,” Rachel said. “This song hits close to my heart because it perfectly describes my relationship with my dad. He has always been so caring and protective, and we share such a special bond. I wanted to incorporate that into a song I could sing for the rest of my life.”
“It is the most beautiful father-daughter song,” said three-time Emmy® award-winning football commentator Terry Bradshaw. “The words say it all. It’s very touching.”
Rachel is currently hard at work writing and selecting songs for her first full-length album with Bigger Picture Group.
