Mitchell Tenpenny Scores Best Debut of New Artist in 2018

Rising star behind RIAA-certified Gold #1 hit "Drunk Me" scores his first album chart hit during Christmas week of 2018.

He may have released his album a week before Christmas but it seems to have paid off as Mitchell Tenpenny ends 2018 as the newcomer with the biggest selling debut. Telling All My Secrets debuted at #5 (as the second-highest non-holiday release) on the multi-metric Country Albums list from Billboard and #1 on the pure album sales driven Country Albums chart.

“What an incredible gift I received on Christmas Eve,” remarked Mitchell Tenpenny. “I was so pleasantly surprised with the news that Telling All My Secrets debuted on the Billboard album chart in such a huge way!"

Tenpenny continued, “I can’t say this enough: What’s happening in my life right now is something I’ve always dreamed about! I have to thank the producers, co-writers, musicians, engineers and mixers on the album, as well as my incredible fans, friends, band members, management, booking agency, record label and publishing company team members.” He added, “I also send a special shout out to country radio, brand partners, music industry supporters, media critics and other artists who have embraced what I do."

“From the bottom of my heart, I appreciate you all for changing my life in 2018!”

Tenpenny will tour in early 2019 in support of the album's release before joining Old Dominion for their Make It Sweet Tour from February to April. The second single from Telling All My Secrets, "Alcohol You Later," will be released in January 2019 as well.
