Tenille Arts Thinks It’s Hard To Love Without Limits

Tenille Arts Thinks It’s Hard To Love Without Limits

In her song “Somebody Like That” Tenille Arts sings “the real thing won’t be easy, it may take a while,” which she says has some truth in it, “It’s very hard to love without limits, because I think if you are hurt in the past by certain things, you immediately put up a wall or…for me in a new relationship it always takes me a minute to be like ‘Why do I feel that way? Oh yeah, it’s because this happened in the past.'”

Tenille says it’s not just about dealing with your past when you’re in a relationship, but it’s also working through the other person’s as well, “It’s also trying to figure out, why does that person feel that way. If they get upset about something, you have to dive in past and be like ‘Oh, this is why they feel that way.'”

When pasts collide, Tenille admits, “I think that does put up kind of barriers in everybody.”

“Somebody Like That” lists all the things that can go wrong with love, but then pivots to the promise of uncompromising love, Tenille says “Hopefully you find somebody who can just knock all of those barriers down.”

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
