Mitchell Tenpenny makes chart history with ‘Truth About You’

Song appears on This Is The Heavy

Mitchell Tenpenny makes chart history with his No. 1 single “Truth About You.” The gold-selling song’s top of the chart success is the shortest span between No. 1 songs in the modern chart era with just three weeks since his last chart topper. On August 22nd, Tenpenny’s co-penned collaboration with labelmate Chris Young, “At The End Of A Bar,” reached No. 1.

“It takes a huge team and support to bring a song to #1,” shares the Riser House/Columbia Nashville/Sony Music Nashville artist who has more than 1.3 billion global streams. “I’m so thankful to everyone, including the fans, who believed this song was special and helped bring it to the top of the charts. And to have this #1 just three weeks after being part of my last one is unbelievable. Thank you country radio. You’ll never know how much this means to me. I’m just overwhelmed with thankfulness.”

In August 2021, Mitchell previewed “Truth About You” for fans on TikTok. Their reaction to the song instantly created the largest streaming debut of his career with 2.5 million streams in the first three days and doubling that number within a week. As a result of this tremendous reaction, the song was sent to country radio that same month.

This Friday, September 16th, Tenpenny will release a new full studio album This Is The Heavy. He co-wrote every song on the 20-track album and co-produced the project with Jordan M. Schmidt.

In January 2023, Tenpenny will headline This Is The Heavy Tour in promotion of his new release. The tour will kick off in Salt Lake City on January 26th at The Union Event Center. Warner Music Nashville’s Tyler Braden will open. The routing also includes back-to-back concerts at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on February 3rd and 4th. Tenpenny, a Nashville native, sold-out his first-ever headline concert there in the fall of 2021 and deemed it as “a childhood dream come true.”
