"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.

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.

When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country.

John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia.
