|“Drunk Me,” co-written by Mitchell Tenpenny, Jordan M. Schmidt and Justin Wilson, ships to country radio on Monday, February 26, and will officially impact Monday, March 26. Currently on a national radio promotion tour, Tenpenny was recently the opening act on Dustin Lynch’s Ride or Die Tour and has also performed with Jake Owen, Brett Young, Lynyrd Skynyrd and more.
A Nashville native with an industry pedigree (his grandmother was Donna Hilley, the esteemed, CEO of Sony/ATV Music Publishing), Tenpenny comes from fertile ground with musical influences as far-flung as Michael Jackson, John Mayer, the Oak Ridge Boys, and R. Kelly. He co-wrote the Top 5 hit, “If the Boot Fits,” for Granger Smith.
With a growing foothold in Nashville, Tenpenny (his given name and not a country version of Fifty Cent) is an industry insider/outlier. Someone who has a local’s appreciation of the origins of Nashville and a keen focus on what happens outside of Music City.
Tenpenny was the flagship artist for Riser House, which is a full-service label, artist management, and music publishing company founded by Matt Swanson, Jennifer Johnson and Mitchell Tenpenny. As the result of a new joint-venture, Sony Music Nashville and Riser House announced Tenpenny’s signing to Riser House/Columbia Nashville in January.
