Tenille Arts has had an incredible year on the road, on the radio, and online and has gathered up an armload of industry accolades and nominations in the process. Today, her third full-length album, Girl to Girl, is available everywhere on 19th & Grand Records. Listen here.
Tenille had a unique thought and approach to each song and the album as a whole. “These 13 songs were written as letters to my current and younger self,” said Tenille, who was the only Country artist featured in YouTube’s 2021 Foundry Class. “They are songs I wish I had when I was 15 and 16 years old. I wanted to write these like a big sister and share my experiences in hopes that people would feel less alone. Whether you’re 15 years old, my age, or older, I want you to feel seen. I want you to dance to these songs, cry to them, and feel all the feels!”
Tenille co-wrote all 13 songs on Girl to Girl and was joined by the likes of Trannie Anderson, AJ Babcock, Ray Fulcher, Ben Goldsmith, Holden James, Alex Kline, Palmer Lee, Jason Massey, Dave Pittenger, MacKenzie Porter, Brandon Ratcliff, Shane Sniteman, Matt Stell, Ben Stennis, Allison Veltz-Cruz, Nick Wayne, and Parker Welling. Callista Clark and Matt Stell are featured on “Breakup Songs” and “Over You Is You,” respectively. AJ Babcock, Nathan Chapman, Alex Kline, and Dave Pittenger share production credits on the album.
“Back Then, Right Now” is the debut single from the album and is currently at 44 and rising on the national airplay charts. Her first single released simultaneously in the U.S. and Canada, “Back Then, Right Now” is approaching Top 30 in her home country. Tenille is featured on numerous high-profile playlists on Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon Music, Soundcloud and YouTube. Both Spotify and YouTube feature Tenille on billboards in Nashville and Los Angeles.
Girl to Girl follows her enormously popular Love, Heartbreak, & Everything in Between album, which yielded her first #1 single “Somebody Like That.” She debuted the single during her third appearance on The Bachelor and performed it a week later on the TODAY Show. The song made history as the first song written, produced and performed by all females to hit #1 on the Country charts. Tenille is the first Canadian artist to reach #1 in the U.S. since 2007 and first Canadian female to hit #1 since Terri Clark in 2004.
The new year kicked off in amazing fashion for Tenille. She was voted by the radio and music industry as one of the five CRS New Faces of Country Music and was inducted into the prestigious CMT Next Women of Country Class of 2021. In February, she received her first U.S. award show nomination: the ACM New Female Artist of the Year. Her dazzling Dolce & Gabbana red carpet outfit landed her on the “best dressed” lists of People, US Magazine, ET Canada, Yahoo, Life & Style and more. She is nominated for Amazon Music and Alexa Fans’ Choice and Female Artist of the Year awards at next month’s CCMA Awards in London, Ontario, Canada.
Tenille recently wrapped opening Lady A’s 33-city “What A Song Can Do” Tour, which kicked off July 29 in Connecticut, criss crossed the country and concluded in New Hampshire. Fans can catch her at the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday, October 23 and at her Girl to Girl release party at 3rd & Lindsley in Nashville on Tuesday, October 26.
