|LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Powerhouse vocalist and country music breakout star Mitchell Tenpenny will make his late night national television debut tomorrow on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” with performances of his RIAA platinum-certified (Gold Certified single in Canada, Peaked at #2 on Mediabase Canada Country Chart), No. 1 single “Drunk Me,” and upcoming single “Alcohol You Later” from his debut album Telling All My Secrets (Riser House/Columbia Nashville). The 11-song project which released December 14 earned Tenpenny the best country first-week showing for a major label debut album this year, amassing 20,000 units.
“Drunk Me,” which The New York Times named one of the Best Songs of the Year (all genres) and made multiple Amazon Music “Most Played” and “Best Of” year-end lists, fueled a breakout year for Tenpenny, who not only co-wrote the track with Jordan Schmidt and Justin Wilson, but also served as co-producer.
Last week, “Drunk Me” achieved the No. 1 position on Nielsen’s Country On-Demand Audio Stream chart. Now totaling over 160 million streams, “Drunk Me” officially impacted country radio on March 26, garnering 60 combined Billboard and Country Aircheck/Mediabase stations. With 52 Mediabase adds, this cinched Tenpenny’s impact add week total to be the best for a country debut single in two years. In fact, the last country artist to achieve this many impact week adds was Tenpenny’s label mate Maren Morris with her debut single, “My Church” in January 2016. Upon its release, “Drunk Me” also made chart history by achieving the highest entry ever for a new artist on Nielsen’s On Demand Audio Core Country Streaming chart. The single debuted at No. 39 with a total of 1.5 million streams.

The buzz around Tenpenny continues to build, as he was recently named one of Pandora’s Artists to Watch in 2019 and a MusicRow 2019 Next Big Thing honoree. The singer/songwriter’s next single “Alcohol You Later” impacts at country radio later this month.
Recently, Tenpenny announced taking the celebration of his album release to the people who have supported him all along: the fans. His “Telling All My Secrets Album Release Tour” launched December 8, in Rome, Georgia with stops in 11 cities and special guests, up-and-coming artists Adam Hambrick, Seaforth and Ross Ellis. With one stop left, the tour wraps Feb. 1 in Denver, CO at The Grizzly Rose.
