Canadian Coast To Coast – presented by The Eagle River Casino and Travel Plaza in Whitecourt.
Fresh off her appearance on “The Bachelor”, my Special Guest today is Weyburn, Saskatchewan’s Tenille Arts.
Tenille picked up the guitar and penned her first song at the age of 13 and has been performing across the US and Canada ever since. She made the move to Nashville two years ago, and a songwriting session brought her to the attention of award-winning producer Matt Rovey (Craig Campbell, Dean Brody), songwriter/producer Adam Wheeler and Noble Vision Music Group head Hal Oven.
Tenille co-wrote 10 of the 11 songs on her Rebel Child album, which was released in October and debuted at #2 on the iTunes Canada Top Country Albums Chart, #12 on the All-Genres Chart and #34 in the United States. Her ““Cold Feet” single so moved noted music critic Tom Roland that he penned a rare full-page feature about the recording in a recent issue of the Billboard Country Update.
Music Row Magazine critic Robert K. Oermann called Tenille “Promising in the extreme,” Pandora said, “with songwriting inspired by Don Henley and reminiscent of early Taylor Swift, and vocals the size of her native Canada, Arts’ future is bright,” and popular country website whiskeyriff.com labeled Tenille a “new country artist name you need to know immediately.”
