Canadian-born and Nashville-based Tenille Townes is one of country music’s most-promising new artists. With a stunning voice and wise, insightful lyricism beguiling in someone her age, Townes is quickly making a name for herself as a writer with the fortitude of Patti Griffin or Lori McKenna and the soulful nature of Chris Stapleton or Adele. She has garnered widespread attention including praise from Billboard, The Tennessean, Sounds Like Nashville, The Boot and NPR Music who declares that she is “…one of the most promising arrivals in mainstream Nashville’s burgeoning singer-songwriter movement.” Working with award-winning producer Jay Joyce on her debut LP, Townes crafted songs and stories that belie her years. Her debut single “Somebody’s Daughter” was a chart hit in the U.S., reached No. 1 in Canada and earned her four Canadian Country Music Awards in 2019. Townes has released four tracks from her debut LP, set for release in 2020 via Columbia Records Nashville, including her current single, “Jersey on the Wall.”
Alan Jackson’s concerts find the country icon performing hits that have gained him legions of longtime fans, songs that continue to draw new crowds as a younger generation discovers his music. Jackson’s repertoire withstands the test of time; it has impacted a field of artists who cite Jackson as an influence. It’s these same songs – many of them written by Alan – that earned him his newfound place alongside country music’s greatest names and cemented his place in its history with his new membership in the Country Music Hall of Fame. Fans will hear the songs they love from the man who wrote them and made them famous, including his debut hit, “Here in The Real World”…signature songs such as “Chattahoochee,” “Drive” and “Gone Country”…party anthems “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” and “Good Time”…and many, many more.
