Tenille Townes will be in the UK in October 2018 for Country Music Week playing the CMA Songwriters Series and opening for Drake White (More CMA info). To coincide ‘Somebody’s Daughter’ the first video from her upcoming Jay Joyce produced album is available now. The album is set for release in 2019 via Columbia Nashville / Sony Music UK and you can check out the video for 'Somebody's Daughter' here @RGM along with more about Tenille Townes and those all-important tour dates.
An alternative acoustic version of the song also appears on Townes’ recently released 'Living Room Worktapes' EP. Released earlier this year to widespread critical acclaim, Rolling Stone calls it, “…a stripped-down introduction to an artist with a whole lot to say,” while Billboard furthers, “Her 'Living Room Worktapes' EP is a piece of art! Her unique voice and storytelling sets her apart…you’ll have it on repeat.” Additionally, Townes is the subject of an in-depth profile at NPR Music’s The Record. Calling her “Nashville’s Newest Voice,” writer Jewly Hight gives a rare glimpse into the early stages of Townes’ burgeoning career and asserts, “…she’s an heir to Twain and Swift, Griffin and McKenna alike, as well as a potential peer to figures like Morris and Musgraves, who’ve built significant followings and visibility with strong, self-written material…” Read the full profile here.
After recently wrapping an extended run as part of Miranda Lambert and Little Big Town’s Bandwagon Tour, Townes will soon travel to the UK for the first time, for a series of shows as part of the CMA Songwriters Series before returning to the USA in November. See below for full tour dates & details.
Canadian-born and Nashville-based, Townes first made her public appearance at age nine alongside Shania Twain after being invited to sing on stage at a concert she attended with her parents. In addition to her work as a musician and songwriter, Townes remains committed to charitable causes including her own initiative, Big Hearts For Big Kids, which has raised over $1.5 million to date benefiting a youth shelter in her hometown of Grande Prairie, Alberta.
