Don’t miss out on this guy.
Two years ago Whiskey Riff introduced you to Mitchell Tenpenny. In the time that has passed since then Mitchell has been grinding, writing, finding his sound and growing as an artist. He co-wrote the popular “If The Boot Fits” that got cut by Granger Smith and also co-wrote “All Eyes On Us” brought to life by Jon Langston. And now he’s preparing to show the world that he’s ready to step into the spotlight himself. Upon meeting Mitchell I knew instantly that this guy was meant to take the artist route. His wit, charm and personality are exactly what a front man needs to have. He’s a hell of a writer and will continue to be, but M10 was meant to be on a stage.
Mitchell’s first EP, Linden Ave, under Riser House Records has been a long time coming he said on Instagram, but well worth the wait. “Truck I Drove In High School” is an infectious boot stomper that gives new life to a song about trucks. Mitchell also put his own acoustic version of “If The Boot Fits” and I’ll go ahead and say it. I like it more than Granger’s version. This EP really show’s Mitchell’s fun side and is a great release for the summer party season. Tenpenny already is hard at work in the studio for new music as well. If you’re local to Nashville make sure to swing by 12th & Porter Tuesday July 18th for his EP release party show. And if you’re a lucky one with a boat head to Two Foot Cove & Skinny Dip Cove on Old Hickory Lake at 2 PM this Sunday July 16th to catch Mitchell and his band perform on the water for Laid Back On The Lake (accessible by boat only).
