Annie June was written by Lily Grace and James Blundell. The song was inspired by a scene where a husband introduces his new girlfriend into a family situation. This woman is blamed for everything and is portrayed as a homewrecker. The song takes the audience on a journey of discovery where they come to an understanding that Annie June is not the sole cause of the family’s problems as people originally thought. This song will resonate with anyone who has come from a broken family situation. When new people are introduced they can experience hatred towards them but they must understand that they are not the entire problem, and sometimes the fractures that already exist within the family are the underlying problem.
