ABOUT MITCHELL TENPENNY:
Since the release of his debut single, “Drunk Me,” Riser House/Columbia Nashville artist Mitchell Tenpenny has set new standards for breakout success in country music. The 2X Platinum-certified, No. 1 hit that has amassed over 500 million on-demand streams was taken from his introductory 2018 album, Telling All My Secrets, and earned him the best first week showing for any major label country debut LP. Since that time, the “winning” singer (the New York Times) was nominated for New Male Artist of the Year at the ACM Awards and Breakthrough Video (“Drunk Me”) at the CMT Music Awards and saw his “Alcohol You Later” and “Anything She Says” singles certified gold.
Mitchell is set to release a new EP later this summer. Among the tracks to be included on the project is “Truth About You” a song he co-wrote and recently previewed on TikTok. After 2.5 million views in the first 3 days, fans encouraged him to release the song digitally.
