Tenpenny plans Ryman headlining show
Monday, March 9, 2020
– Mitchell Tenpenny will headline his first concert at the Ryman Auditorium on Oct. 10 with proceeds going to the 10Penny Fund in partnership with Sarah Cannon.
Tenpenny's Night Owl fan club members will have access to pre-sale tickets beginning at 10 a.m. local time on Tuesday with the public sale set for this Friday at 10 a.m. local time.
"I grew up in Nashville attending concerts in most of the city's many venues, but the dream to have the opportunity to headline the Ryman Auditorium seems too surreal," he said. "We have many special plans for this show, and I'm grateful in advance to all my fans who will join us in supporting a wonderful cause that unfortunately all too many families understand."
Tenpenny created the 10Penny Fund in 2018 to provide inspiration and to support programs that help build community, motivate patients and encourage healing for people facing cancer and their loved ones. His outreach grew from his own personal experiences dealing with his father's cancer and what his family learned through the process. In 2019, he teamed up with Sarah Cannon and the Cancer Institute of HCA Healthcare to renovate the 'Family Room' at the American Cancer Society Memorial Foundation Hope Lodge in downtown Nashville.
Tenpenny wrapped his headlining Anything She Says Tour this weekend with back-to-back sold-out concerts. The tour launched its 25-city run in 2019 with a sold-out hometown show in Nashville. Special guests included RCA Nashville rising duo Seaforth (Tom Jordan, Mitchell Thompson) and Arista Nashville's Adam Doleac.

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. Steve Earle famously commented how contemporary country music is "hip-hop for people who are afraid of black people," but some of it - including this album's songs - sounds like pop music that doesn't »»»
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: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music
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.
But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
