As Maddie gets emotional, Deacon reiterates that he will support her no matter what. “I just hated seeing you in pain.

The songstress sounds distressed about the situation. “I just don’t know anymore,” she cries.

He wipes his daughter’s tears away and reassures her that things will be fine. “Well, those people out there, they think they know you from that video, but they don’t,” he says. “That’s not the full picture, not by a mile. You are a wonderful, generous, kind, young woman, and I am so proud to be your dad. I think you need to say something in your own words and let them know who you really are.”
