Tenpenny goes "Breaking My Heart"

Friday, January 19, 2024 – Mitchell Tenpenny is out with a new song and music video - "Breaking My Heart" – today.

"Breaking My Heart," written by Tenpenny, Ashley Gorley, Chase McGill and Jordan Schmidt, is the follow up to his Top 10 hit "We Got History." The video was filmed at various locations around middle Tennessee and was directed by Zach Pigg.

The mid-tempo track spotlights Tenpenny's whispered delivery as the song finds the male character lamenting over a breakup that won't stop hurting in the face of an ex who is clearly moving on. "Breaking My Heart" is the first of more new music to be released in 2024.

"'Breaking My Heart' was written about going through a break up and trying to get your ex off your mind. You keep trying to do things and go different places but it seems like every single thing reminds you of them," shared Tenpenny.

"I remember once during a break up, I kept seeing her specific car (make, model, and color) all the time. They were just driving around me every day. I couldn't escape it. So that concept was what I thought about when I came up with the idea for this song. There are things in life that happen that instantly bring you back to a time with someone else. Maybe a song comes on the radio that reminds you of them, maybe someone brings them up in a story, maybe it's a bar you like to go to, or even a favorite food you like to eat. That's what the heart of this song is truly about. Sometimes things are unescapable, especially after a break up with someone you might have thought is the one. But all you're asking for is a chance to get over them but reminders of them keep showing up everywhere and there is nothing you can do about it."

Tenpenny returns to Cancun, Mexico this weekend as he participates in Luke Bryan's Crash My Playa destination concert event for the second time. Last week, he performed his radio hit "We Got History" on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and appeared on CMT Campfire Sessions with Chris Young.

Mitchell is hitting the road this year with Luke Combs on the "Growin' Up and Gettin' Old Tour" and Jordan Davis' "The Damn Good Time 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. ...
