Tenpenny tells all in December

Wednesday, October 10, 2018 – Nashville native Mitchell Tenpenny will be "Telling All My Secrets" when his major label debut disc drops in December.

Tenpenny, who released an EP earlier this year, is out on Dec. 14 on Riser House/Columbia Nashville. The disc features his hit "Drunk Me," which went top 10 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart this week.

"The secret is out," Tenpenny said. "So thankful to finally share what I've been working on with y'all."

Tenpenny has music in his background because his grandmother is industry veteran and first female CEO of Sony/ATV Music Publishing, Donna Hilley,

Tenpenny wrote 56 songs in preparation for the album narrowing it down to 11 strong tracks, including "Alcohol You Later" and exclusively to digital and vinyl, "Bitches." The tracks were featured on Tenpenny's self-titled EP.

"I'm proud of the success of a track like 'Bitches.' It is always a favorite at our shows, but for a new listener I understand it could be a bit divisive. The song isn't about girls or guys, it is about cheaters and liars and haters and bullies. I hate bullies, and I hate people that pick on others. Sometimes there is only one word for a certain emotion. In this case, it was bitch. I'm excited to 'share all my secrets' on this album so fans get the full picture of what I'm about."

The track list is:
1. Truck I Drove in High School | Mitchell Tenpenny/Jordan Schmidt/Andrew Albert/Devin Dawson
2. Alcohol You Later | Mitchell Tenpenny/Sam Sumser/Michael Lotten
3. All On You | Mitchell Tenpenny/Andrew Albert/Nick Fradiani/Jordan Schmidt
4. Goner | Mitchell Tenpenny/Andrew Albert/Jordan Schmidt
5. Chance Worth Taking | Mitchell Tenpenny/Josh Hoge/Matthew McVaney
6. I Get The Picture | Mitchell Tenpenny/Alex Kline/Michael Whitworth
7. Drunk Me | Mitchell Tenpenny/Jordan Schmidt/Justin Wilson
8. Somebody's Got Me | Mitchell Tenpenny/Hillary Lindsey/Jordan Schmidt
9. Somebody Ain't You | Mitchell Tenpenny/Thomas Archer/Dallas Wilson
10. Telling All My Secrets | Mitchell Tenpenny/Jordan Minton/Dallas Wilson
11. Walk Like Him | Mitchell Tenpenny/Justin Ebach/Steven Dale Jones

Tenpenny has toured with Maren Morris, Jake Owen, Brett Young, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Dustin Lynch. Tenpenny will join Old Dominion in 2019 for their Make It Sweet Tour.

CD reviews for Mitchell Tenpenny

CD review - This is the Heavy Mitchell Tenpenny calls his album "This is The Heavy" because "it's big. It's loud. It's in your face and drum heavy," he said. In contrast that is not at all how one would describe most country music. Thus, Tenpenny's lengthy album (a whole 20 tracks!) is country-associated, at best. The song titles, at least, read like country songs, including "More Than Whiskey Does," "Good And Gone" and "Good Place." The latter finds ...
CD review - Naughty House One big clue that Mitchell Tenpenny's "Naughty List" holiday collection is a winner, is how spontaneous and rocking is his version of "Jingle Bell Rock." He doesn't just repeat the Bobby Helms original, but instead makes it all his own. Then again, with a distinctive voice like his, he puts his personal stamp on everything. He rocks out even more during "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town," even though that one also includes upfront banjo picking. ...
CD review - Neon Christmas EP If all you know about Mitchell Tenpenny is "Alcohol You Later," you may be unprepared for a few of the Christmas present surprises on his "Neon Christmas" EP. Granted, "Snow Angels" is a little too pop for its own good. However, the acoustic guitar-picked subtlety of "O Holy Night" is truly sweet, while the steel guitar-soaked "Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!" is the exact right winter setting for Tenpenny's vocal vibrato. ...
