Townes unveils "The Most Beautiful Things"

Monday, April 6, 2020 – Budding singer/songwriter Tenille Townes released a new song, "The Most Beautiful Things."

Townes' label, Sony Music Nashville announced a new partnership today with RCA Records which will combine the efforts of RCA, Columbia Nashville and the SMN label group behind a global plan for Townes.

Townes performed the song from her home last night as part of the official "ACM Presents: Our Country" pre-show.

Townes said, "We were all once a little kid, full of wonder and seeing the beauty in anything. We were unafraid to be ourselves, relentlessly willing to dream the craziest of dreams because we weren't scared of failing or of what anyone else thought. I hope this song helps people remember what that felt like. Holding on to the love we have for each other and the most beautiful things around us, even in hard times, is what keeps that feeling alive. It makes me so thankful to get to put out this song right now in the times we are in."

Townes also released a special new performance video of the late Bill Withers' "Lean On Me," last week, two days after Withers passed away at 81. Recorded remotely from their homes, the video features performances from fellow country artists Abby Anderson, Kassi Ashton, Keelan Donovan, Alex Hall, Adam Hambrick and Caylee Hammack.

Townes released an EP, "Road to the Lemonade Stand," in February. Produced by Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Little Big Town), the EP features five songs written by Townes including her current single, " Jersey On The Wall (I'm Just Asking)," which was recently Gold certified in Canada, as well as a rendition of Keith Urban's "Stupid Boy." The release also contains "Somebody's Daughter," which attracted airplay.

Canadian-born and Nashville-based, Townes is nominated for Breakthrough Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year at the 2020 Juno Awards (the Canadian Grammys) and recently won four awards at the 2019 Canadian Country Music Awards: Female Artist of the Year, Single of the Year ("Somebody's Daughter"), Anthem Entertainment Songwriter of the Year and Video of the Year ("Somebody's Daughter"). Winning all four of her nominated categories, Townes lead the night with the most awards received.

These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be).
