In between promoting his debut album, Telling All My Secrets and playing sold-out shows, rising country star (and one of NYCS’s 2019 Artist to Watch), Mitchell Tenpenny made his way to Hollywood Boulevard in California last night, to accomplish yet another great feat. For the first time, the singer-songwriter performed on late night television, as part of the Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! concert series sponsored by Mercedes-Benz.
With the record in hand, host, Jimmy Kimmel gave Tenpenny a warm-welcome to the outdoor stage, “This is his album, Telling All My Secrets. Here with the song, “Drunk Me,” Mitchell Tenpenny!.” Immediately following the crowd went wild, as the entertainer emerged on stage, singing the opening lyrics to his Number 1 hit and debut single, “Drunk Me.”
Backed by a four-piece band and with a guitar in hand, Tenpenny clearly was having the time of his life on stage, sharing a big grin with the audience about half-way through his performance. The singer-songwriter showcased his range and talent throughout the entire performance, even singing the last note acapella. Check out the impressive full performance of the catchy tune below.
In typical LIVE! fashion, Tenpenny sang one more song for fans that was not aired as part of the broadcast. The recording artist performed his next single, “Alcohol You Later.” Tenpenny even gave his Instagram followers a sneak peek of his rehearsal, as he geared up for this performance. Like with his previous performance, the singer-songwriter added some flavor and twists to “Alcohol You Later”, showcasing its immense potential as a radio single. Watch the full episode here.
Tenpenny is primed for the biggest year of his career. He is a supporting act on Old Dominion’s ‘Make It Sweet Tour,’ beginning in late February. The tour makes its way to the New York area twice, including to New York City’s Hulu Theater on May 17th and to the Pennysaver Amphitheater on May 25th. Tickets go on sale to the general public, this Friday. For a full list of Tenpenny’s shows, head to mitchell10penny.com.
