ABOUT MITCHELL TENPENNY:
Since the release of his debut single, “Drunk Me,” Riser House/Columbia Nashville artist Mitchell Tenpenny has set new standards for breakout success in country music. The 2X Platinum-certified, No. 1 hit that has amassed over 500 million on-demand streams was taken from his introductory 2018 album, Telling All My Secrets, and earned him the best first week showing for any major label country debut LP. Since that time, the “winning” singer (the New York Times) was nominated for New Male Artist of the Year at the ACM Awards and Breakthrough Video (“Drunk Me”) at the CMT Music Awards and saw his “Alcohol You Later” and “Anything She Says” singles certified gold.
Mitchell is set to release a new EP later this summer. Among the tracks to be included on the project is “Truth About You” a song he co-wrote and recently previewed on TikTok. After 2.5 million views in the first 3 days, fans encouraged him to release the song digitally.
ABOUT CALLISTA CLARK:
Every song has a story and at just 17 years old Callista Clark has a lot to say. Like so many talented singer/songwriters that paved the way before her, the young songstress wields her creative gifts as both a defense and an instrument of peace as she puts her heart on display with her debut collection Real To Me, out now via Big Machine Records. Blending her love for authentic, timeless classics with the sounds of her Georgia roots, Clark “arrives with confidence and verve” (Billboard) on her debut collection. Gearing up for the release, she collaborated with many of Country music’s leading songwriters including Jonathan Singleton, Laura Veltz, Nicolle Galyon, and Emily Shackleton, among others. The proof that Clark can hold her own among Nashville’s most prominent is evident as she was recently named the next iHeartCountry On The Verge Artist and her debut single, “It’s ‘Cause I Am” continues to climb as Country radio’s most successful new artist debut of 2021. Clark performed “It’s ‘Cause I Am” for the first time on national television during a Live with Kelly & Ryan appearance earlier this year. Her inspiring videos with which Scooter Braun (SB Projects) and Scott Borchetta (Big Machine Label Group) took notice, have amassed over 130 million views across all socials + YouTube.
