Mitchell Tenpenny Scores First No. 1 Single With “Drunk Me”

Mitchell Tenpenny Scores First No. 1 Single With “Drunk Me”

Pop the champagne . . . Mitchell Tenpenny has a reason to celebrate.

Mitchell’s lead single, “Drunk Me,” from his upcoming debut album, Telling All My Secrets, hit No. 1 on the Mediabase chart this week. Co-penned by Mitchell, Jordan Schmidt and Justin Wilson, the tune has accumulated more than 120 million streams.

“I recorded ‘Drunk Me’ after pitching it to other artists in town for over six months,” says Mitchell. “I believed in my heart it was such a special song and that it would be a hit for someone. I never dreamt it would be the song labels first heard from me, resulting in a record deal . . . or that it would go on to bring us our first single, yet alone a number one. It’s been a two-year journey with this song, yet so many believed, and so, this is one of those moments we all share together—my co-writers, our band and record label, country radio and all the fans that have streamed it over 120 million times. I can’t get over you. You’ve changed my life.”

Mitchell will drop Telling All My Secrets on Dec. 14. The debut album features 11 songs, all of which Mitchell co-penned. In February, Mitchell will join Old Dominion’s Make It Sweet Tour.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
