In a world of dreams, Tenille Arts has seen more come true in the last couple of years than even she could have imagined, and the latest of which is the release of her new full-length album Girl To Girl.
Girl To Girl hit just as Tenille was wrapping up opening Lady A’s coast-to-coast What A Song Can Do Tour. Her “Back Then, Right Now” single, the first to be released simultaneously in the U.S. and Canada, is her second bona fide hit on Country radio. The album also features duets with Matt Stell and Callista Clark.
The new album follows her ground-breaking Love, Heartbreak, & Everything in Between collection, which yielded the #1 hit “Somebody Like That.” The single, which was recently certified platinum in the U.S., made history as the first #1 Country single written, produced and performed by an all-female cast. Tenille wrote the song with Allison Cruz and Alex Kline, and Kline produced the track.
Hit ABC show The Bachelor bought into Tenille’s talent early, and she has made three appearances performing original songs for millions of viewers. Each performance led to #1 songs on iTunes U.S. and Canada and gained her countless fans along the way.
Back in Canada, Tenille has received 16 trophies from the Saskatchewan Country Music Association Awards from 2018 through 2022 including the National/International Artist Award this year. In September 2020, she received her first Canadian Country Music Association Award – the “Rising star Award.” A few months later, she received “Country Artist of the Year,” “Album of the Year” (all genre) and “Single of the Year” for “Somebody Like That” from the SaskMusic Awards.
She was inducted into the prestigious CMT Next Women of Country Class of 2021 and named one of the five 2021 CRS New Faces of Country Music. She was nominated for the ACM New Female Artist of the Year, iHeart Radio Music Awards Best New Country Artist. Her “Back Then, Right Now” single led to CMT Music Awards nominations for Female Video of the Year and Breakthrough Video of the Year. Her award show red carpet outfits at each show have landed her on numerous best-dressed lists.
Born and raised in the small prairie town of Weyburn, Saskatchewan, Tenille now makes Nashville her home.
