Tenille Arts hit the new year running in a week that started with having a dream come true by performing at the Grand Ole Opry at the historic Ryman Auditorium last Friday and culminating today with the release of her new album “Love, Heartbreak, & Everything in Between” on Reviver Records/19th & Grand Records.
She performed the entire 12-song collection of four love songs, four breakup songs and four songs about everything else in life for a packed crowd at The Back Corner venue in Nashville last night.
“I’m really excited about this project. I got to work with a ton of different writers and producers and really push past my own comfort zone,” Tenille told American Songwriter in a feature this week.
The new album is available HERE.
Tenille wrote two of the songs solo and partnered with the likes of Allison Veltz Cruz, Whitney Duncan, Derek George, Alex Kline, Palmer Lee, Josh Logan, Lizzy McAvoy, James Slater, Grand Vogelfanger and Adam Wheeler on the other 10 cuts. Kline, Vogelfanger and Wheeler, along with Matt Rovey, have production credits on the collection.
The past week has been one of the busiest of her career leading up to today’s release. Following the Grand Ole Opry performance, she headed to New York to sing the American and Canadian National Anthems prior to the Brooklyn Nets and Toronto Raptors NBA gave at the Barclays Center. Monday included half a day of radio interviews and viewing party of ABC’s top-rated show The Bachelor.
Tenille made an unprecedented third appearance on the show’s three-hour premiere of season 24, performing her new single “Somebody Like That” for new bachelor Peter Weber, his date and his family. The song shot to the #2 slot on the iTunes Country Chart and #10 all-genre the following day and will impact Country radio on Monday, January 13th. “Love, Heartbreak, & Everything in Between” quickly became the #1 country pre-order on iTunes as well.
Somebody Like That” spent three weeks atop the Radio Disney Top 50 Country Chart and is receiving incredible exposure on official Spotify playlists New Boots, Wild Country, All About Country and others. YouTube Music featured it on the cover of Country’s New Crop, and Apple Music, Amazon Music and Pandora are big supporters, helping Tenille garner over 31 million lifetime streams.

Born and raised in the small prairie town of Weyburn, Saskatchewan, Tenille Arts picked up the guitar and penned her first song at age 13 and has been performing across the US and Canada ever since. She made her first appearance on The Bachelor in January 2018 singing her original song “Moment of Weakness.” The performance resulted in a record deal with powerhouse indie label Reviver Records. She made her second appearance on the show in January of this year performing “I Hate This.” The song hit #1 on both the U.S. and Canadian iTunes Country Charts and #9 U.S. iTunes all-genre following the episode.
Tenille has released an EP and a full-length album, and her music has tallied over 31 million streams. Noted music critic Tom Roland was so moved by her music that he has penned three full-page features in the Billboard Country Update. Music Row Magazine critic Robert K. Oermann called Tenille “Promising in the extreme.” Streaming giant Pandora named her one of their new artists to watch, and CMT included her in their “Ten Must-See Indies You Need to Know,” a video discovery program that spotlights rising independent artists and established artists from independent labels. Rolling Stone named Tenille one of their “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know,” calling her “An edgy,
Fearless-era Taylor Swift with crystalline vocals; ideal for hopeless romantics who are fire signs,” and PopCulture.com named her one of their “Country Artists to Watch in 2018.”
Tenille made her Grand Ole Opry debut on September 21, 2019 and performed at the Grand Ole Opry at the historic Ryman Auditorium on January 3, 2020.
