Singer Tenille Arts has had a year of incredible milestones, and will kick off the new year by making an unprecedented third appearance on ABC’s top-rated show “The Bachelor”, on Monday, January 6, 2020, at 8/7. The three-hour premiere of season 24 will see her perform “Somebody Like That” for new bachelor Peter Weber.
This song hit the No. 1 spot on the Radio Disney Top 50 Country Chart two weeks in a row.
The Weyburn-born performer also announced on Dec. 10 that she will be releasing a new album in one month’s time, on Jan. 10, 2020.
Tenille made her first appearance on the Bachelor show in 2018 singing her original song “Moment of Weakness,” which led to her being signed to Nashville’s Reviver Records.
Producers were so taken with her talent, they invited her back to perform “I Hate This” in January of this year. Following the performance, the song hit No. 1 on the iTunes Canada and U.S. Country Chart, No. 9 on the U.S. all-genre chart and propelled her 2017 Rebel Child album to re-enter the iTunes Country Albums chart at No. 5. “I Hate This” received over two million streams in just four days following the show.
She wrote “Somebody Like That” with Alex Kline and Allison Veltz. The three were reflecting on the love they grew up around with their parents and grandparents, a universal love many seek, and The Bachelorproducers felt it was a perfect song for the show. “I Hate This” reached No. 1 in January of this year.
When Tenille thought about what to call her new album, she only had to look at her life over the last couple of years to come up with Love, Heartbreak & Everything in Between.
The 12-song album, due out January 10, 2020 on Reviver Records/19th& Grand Records, gives a glimpse into dreams that have come true, sacrifices made along the way and everything in between. The album is available for pre-order.
“I’m so excited about this album,” said Tenille. “It’s everything I’ve been through this past year, so I decided to title it ‘Love, Heartbreak, & Everything in Between.’ It’s four love songs, four breakup songs and four songs about everything else in life. I got to collaborate with new songwriters and producers, and I’m so proud of the creativity on this album.”
Tenille wrote two of the songs solo and partnered with the likes of Allison Margaret Cruz, Whitney Duncan, Derek George, Alex Kline, Palmer Lee, Josh Logan, Lizzy McAvoy, James Slater, Grand Vogelfanger and Adam Wheeler on the other 10 cuts. Kline, Vogelfanger and Wheeler, along with Matt Rovey, have production credits on the collection.
Tenille has released an EP and a full-length album up to this point, and her music has tallied over 31 million streams. She made her Grand Ole Opry debut on Sept. 21.
