CountryTown in partnership with iHeartCountry Australia is proud to announce Mitchell Tenpenny as our Artist Of The Week, following the release of his new EP, Midtown Diaries.

The multi-platinum RCA Records Nashville entertainer has accumulated an impressive list of accomplishments, including membership in the iconic Grand Ole Opry, more than 4 Billion on-demand streams, 13 million singles sold, 11 career #1 singles, 21 R.I.A.A. gold/platinum/multi-platinum certified projects, 2 Grammy nominations, 3 Country Music Association nominations and 4 Academy of Country Music nominations along with a win for ‘Performance of the Year’ at 2020’s CMT Music Awards. These accomplishments and more landed him in the Top 20 of Billboard’s top country artists of the decade.

Tenpenny was born and raised in Nashville, beginning his career writing songs for other artists – including If The Boot Fits with Granger Smith. He released his debut album Black Crow and single of the same name in 2015. He followed up with his 2017 EP, Linden Ave and second album, Telling All My Secrets (2018), which peaked at #5 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, and includes the platinum-certified #1 single, Drunk Me. He also appeared on HARDY’s Hixtape Vol. 1 in 2019.

Tenpenny recently released his latest single, Truth About You. He released the song after he shared a clip on TikTok, which gained more than 2.5 million views in its first three days. Written by Tenpenny, Matt Alderman and Thomas Archer, Truth About You has become the largest streaming debut of his career to date.

He says, “I have the best and most reactive fans. Their instantaneous feedback is invaluable to me as an artist. There is nothing more gratifying than making music for them.”

The breakup song is taken from Midtown Diaries, which includes his inspirational previous single, Bucket List and the critically praised, To Us It Did. He also recently joined Chris Young on his latest track, At The End Of A Bar.
