TENILLE TOWNES’ THE LEMONADE STAND NOMINATED FOR
COUNTRY ALBUM OF THE YEAR AT 2021 JUNO AWARDS
NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Columbia Nashville singer-songwriter Tenille Townes’ acclaimed debut album The Lemonade Stand is nominated for Country Album of the Year at the 2021 Juno Awards.
This is Townes’ third Juno nomination, following her nods for Breakthrough Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year in 2020.
The Lemonade Stand is available now via Columbia Nashville in partnership with RCA Records, and features Townes’ debut single “Somebody’s Daughter” as well as follow-up “Jersey on the Wall (I’m Just Asking),” which both topped Canadian country airplay charts. Since the album’s release, Townes has earned two ACM Awards for New Female Artist of the Year and Music Event of the Year (“Fooled Around and Fell in Love” with Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Ashley McBryde, Caylee Hammack and Elle King). She also received Female Artist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year (“Jersey On The Wall (I’m Just Asking)”) and Video of the Year (“Jersey On The Wall (I’m Just Asking)”) at the 2020 Canadian Country Music Awards.
