– Mitchell Tenpenny revealed the second leg to his headline Anything She Says Tour today
. Special guests include RCA Nashville duo Seaforth (Tom Jordan, Mitchell Thompson) and Sony Nashville's Adam Doleac.

Tickets go on sale starting Friday, Dec. 13 at 10 a.m. local time.
"One of the greatest things about this particular tour is the reception of the music from the fans," said Tenpenny. "There is nothing more satisfying and humbling then when your fans are singing back lyrics to your own songs. This happened the first night in Nashville and I actually forgot a lyric because I was so moved. I'm so thrilled to be continuing this tour."

Doleac recently signed to Sony Music Nashville's Arista Nashville imprint and will release his debut single, "Famous," to country radio on Dec. 16. The "Famous" music video, available now , stars Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph as well as Doleac. A Hattiesburg, Miss. native, Doleac became impassioned with music in college at the University of Southern Mississippi where he not only played baseball, but wrote songs with his teammates and learned to play guitar. After he began playing hometown area gigs, Doleac posted a performance of one of his songs on YouTube which accrued millions of views and caught the attention of Sony/ATV Music Publishing. He has helped write songs recorded by Kane Brown, Darius Rucker and Hootie and the Blowfish.

Telling All My Secrets
Mitchell Tenpenny is yet one more artist stretching the definition of country music - nearly to the breaking point. While he sings with a distinctly enjoyable, Otis Redding-like soulful voice, the arrangements to these songs on his second album feature far more pop than twang.

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Gayle, Orlando provide good old-fashioned entertainment
Although this pairing of country star Crystal Gayle and Tony Orlando may have - on the surface - appeared to be an odd one, tonight's audience demonstratively loved each performer equally. It was an evening of memorable songs, fun and funny stories and just good old-fashioned entertainment.

Concert Review: With or without band, Isbell satisfies
Usually, when an artist performs without his regular backing band, it becomes about mathematics of subtraction. That artist is armed with far fewer artistic weapons at his/her disposal, after all. In Jason Isbell's case, though, when he performed with just his wife and fiddler Amanda Shires, it was more about substitution than subtraction.... »»»
