Breakthrough singer-songwriter Mitchell Tenpenny will perform at the Troy Fair, Alparon Park July 24.
Tenpenny has been nominated for a 2019 ACM Award for “New Male Artist of the Year.”
Tenpenny, who made his Grand Ole Opry debut Saturday, June 29, has a new single, “Alcohol You Later,” the follow-up to his Platinum-certified No.1 hit, “Drunk Me.”
Tenpenny made his national television debut July 3 on NBC’s Today Show with a performance “Drunk Me,” from his debut album Telling All My Secrets (Riser House/Columbia Nashville).
The 11-song project, which released Dec. 14, earned Tenpenny the best country first-week showing for a major label debut album this year, amassing 20,000 units.
Prior to his performance, Today hosts Craig Melvin, Al Roker, Sheinelle Jones and Dylan Dreyer surprised Tenpenny with a plaque to celebrate the song’s Platinum certification by the RIAA.
“Drunk Me,” which The New York Times named one of the Best Songs of the Year (all genres) and made multiple Amazon Music “Most Played” and “Best Of” year-end lists, fueled a breakout year for Tenpenny, who not only co-wrote the track with Jordan Schmidt and Justin Wilson, but also served as co-producer.
