NASHVILLE, TN – Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Tenille Townes took home the COUNTRY ALBUM OF THE YEAR trophy, her first, at the 50th Annual JUNO Awards for her debut album The Lemonade Stand.
“It feels surreal and so exciting to know that people have heard this collection of music and wrapped their arms around it,” says Townes. “Truly was a dream to make this record and it’s such an honor to get to celebrate this moment with the Canadian music community at the Junos tonight!”
Townes’ debut outing, The Lemonade Stand, was produced by Jay Joyce, and released nearly a year ago (June 26, 2020) via Columbia Nashville in partnership with RCA Records.
With the JUNO Award-win, the Canadian-born, Nashville-based, Tenille Townes closes the first chapter of her artistic career on a high note, as she begins to open the door to her next chapter with new music to be announced soon.
