Tenpenny plans fall headlining tour

Monday, August 16, 2021 – Mitchell Tenpenny is undertaking a headlining tour for this fall.

The To Us It Did Tour starts Sept. 23 in Wantagh, N.Y. soon after the release of his new EP "Midtown Diaries," out Sept. 10. The eight-song EP contains his new radio single, "Truth About You," which became the second most added at country radio this week with 17 first-week stations.

Drew Green will open the tour, which hits 12 cities including Tenpenny's hometown of Nashville. on Oct. 10. The tour will route alongside Tenpenny's special guest dates on Chris Young's "Famous Friends 2021 Tour" and two dates on Dierks Bentley's "Beers On Me Tour."

"It's been so much fun getting back to live shows this summer," said Tenpenny. "I'm grateful for all the technology that allowed me to stay in touch with my fans and to stream performances in the last year, but nothing can replace live music. It feels so good to see all the places we get to play this fall, and we are stoked about the shows with Chris, and Dierks, too because we love the opportunity to make new fans."

Tenpenny will headline the Ryman for the first time. A portion of the proceeds from the Oct. 10 concert will go to the 10Penny Fund which provides inspiration and supports programs that help build community, motivate patients and encourage healing for people facing cancer and their loved ones. The singer created the 10Penny Fund in 2018 in response to his own personal experiences dealing with his father's cancer and what his family learned through the process.

CD review - Neon Christmas EP If all you know about Mitchell Tenpenny is "Alcohol You Later," you may be unprepared for a few of the Christmas present surprises on his "Neon Christmas" EP.

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 ...
