Hot on the heels of topping the Radio Disney Country Top 50 Chart with her “I Hate This” single, Reviver Records today released “Call You Names,” an incredibly personal song from Tenille Arts. Written by Tenille and James T. Slater (“High Cost of Living,” “In My Daughter’s Eyes,” “Unstoppable”) and produced by Alex Kline, the new single has special meaning for Tenille.
“I wrote ‘Call You Names’ about my mom and our relationship,” said Tenille. “It’s an apology for all of those teenage years. When we are at that age, we think we know everything and call our parents mean names. Then we grow up and realize how amazing they are, and the names we call change into beautiful names.”
Tenille shot a music video in Los Angeles for the new single last week before traveling to Las Vegas to perform a rousing set at Stoney’s Rockin’ Country as part of the ACM Lifting Lives events leading up to Sunday’s ACM Awards. The video will begin airing later this month.
After a few days in Nashville, Tenille heads to her home province this weekend where she is nominated in six categories at the 30th Annual Saskatchewan Country Music Association Awards. She took home four awards last year, and she received nods this year for “Female Artist of the Year,” “Interactive Artist of the Year,” “Fan’s Choice Entertainer of the Year” and “Single of the Year” and “Songwriter of the Year” for her Canadian single “Mad Crazy Love.”
