NYCS First Impression: Meghan Patrick ‘Wild as Me’

Meghan Patrick Wild as Me

Canadian country music singer-songwriter Meghan Patrick is a girl boss humbly blessing country music amidst the likes of Ashley McBryde and Kacey Musgraves. Born and raised in Ontario, Canada, and later settling in the music scene in Nashville, the two-time CCMA Female Vocalist of the Year is sustaining her coast to coast journey and making a prominent introduction in American country music with her new EP, Wild as Me, following her previous releases Country Music Made Me Do It and Grace & Grit.

“Girls Like Me” mightily kicks off the musical assemblage with the allure of feminine individualities and the attractiveness of male qualities, promulgating what works for “girls like her.” These include tattoos and a working man persona. This prompts the second track, “Things I Shouldn’t Say;” a sensual, slow-talking, rhythmically ballad, begging you to hold the one that you love close. Perhaps not the most appropriate for the younger ears but the strongest love ballad in the mix.

“Wild as Me,” the EP’s title track, unveils a softer side of the singer-songwriter, musically and emotionally, but powerfully delivers a love story singing: “Baby, you’re wild as me / My once in a lifetime made of the same kind of crazy / I want every sunset, and every sunrise / When you hold me tight, it sets me free / I thank God I found somebody / Wild as me.”

Closer, “Chaser” insinuates a late-night bar karaoke, feel good love story. Not minding taking the position of a rebound love interest for the night, the track written by Patrick with Joey Hyde and Dan Isbell relays a care free situation. “I’ll be your chaser, something sweet, get your mind off her and on to me / the eraser of memories, and you get your lips where they want to be, right on mine cause boy it’s time to send that her on down the line / I’ll be your chaser, yeah I’ll be your chaser, so take a shot on me”. 

Patrick will be hitting the road in 2020 opening for Old Dominion’s “We Are Old Dominion” tour across Canada alongside fellow country music singer-songwriter and beau, Mitchell Tenpenny.

Mitchell Tenpenny & Seaforth Team Up on “Anything She Says”

anything she says m10

Almost two years ago we introduced you to a rising talent that we believed in. Mitchell Tenpenny played for us in the middle of NYC’s Time Square as an undiscovered artist in one of our Swag Sessions. Flash forward a year later, he released his debut album, Telling All My Secrets, which garnered his first number one hit, “Drunk Me,” as well as, landed himself coveted opening gigs on tour with the likes of Old Dominion and Rascal Flatts. Today, Tenpenny continues his incredible momentum by releasing a brand new song featuring one of our Swag Spotlights, Seaforth called “Anything She Says.”

Laced with clever wordplay and a catchy chorus, “Anything She Says” is clearly an M10 song. It would fit in perfectly in the catalog of songs off the singer-songwriters debut album, while still having a more mature and elevated sound. It begins with an enticing guitar rift, much like his smash hit “Drunk Me,” which is sure to add to the recognizability of the tune. The love song is Tenpenny’s take on being smitten by a girl and wanting to give her his all, most likely inspired by his beautiful girlfriend.

Throughout the song, Tenpenny and the men of Seaforth trade verses. Tenpenny sings the first verse and chorus lamenting the sweet sentiments, “I would wreck all of my plans / Drive until we hit the sand / Catch a sunburn, while she tans / I would do, I would do / I’d do whatever she likes / Give her Christmas in July / She ain’t gotta tell me twice / I would do, I would do, anything / She says.”  Seaforth goes on to add, “She got all my attention / She knows I’m always listening, hanging off her lips / Yeah she got me like” about their own muse.

After just one listen, this song is sure to be stuck in your head and a staple in your music library!

We caught Tenpenny back in May at Hulu Theatre in Madison Square Garden, when he opened up for Old Dominion and Jordan Davis for a sold-out NYC crowd of fans. It was definitely an epic night of music! For more tour information and a chance to see Tenpenny live, head to mitchell10penny.com.

Old Dominion, Jordan Davis & Mitchell Tenpenny Sold Out Show in NYC

Nestled underneath the grandeur of the iconic Madison Square Garden is an intimate venue, The Hulu Theater at MSG. Friday night three of country music’s biggest rising acts took the stage to perform for a sold-out crowd, as the Make It Sweet Tour made its way to New York City.

Old Dominion/Mitchell Tenpenny/Jordan Davis

One of our Swag Session alums, and 2019 Artists to Watch, Mitchell Tenpenny took the stage first, and it was remarkable to watch the room, which was almost completely packed at that early part of the night, engage with Tenpenny and his music. He sang “Truck I Drove In High School”, “Goner” and the title track to his debut album which was released late last year, “Telling All My Secrets”. Another great moment was watching him perform his current single “Alcohol You Later” and already seeing the crowd loving it.

“I’ve gotta thank you guys for changing our lives this year with our next song, gave us our first platinum song, which is crazy, I never thought that would happen, you bought it, you streamed the shit out of it, thank you so much for that.” Tenpenny humbly expressed to the crowd. “And then you requested it so much at radio, you gave us our first number one song, I was so grateful for that. And now we get to come to cool cities, like New York City and play our music.” He performed “Drunk Me” and throughout the entirety of the song, the whole crowd was singing back to him, at one point, he even stood back to just let them sing, it was an overwhelming moment for the singer-songwriter.

Closing the night with “Bitches”, a song that isn’t about “calling guys bitches or calling girls bitches, it’s about calling bitches, bitches,” he laughed. We watched his performance of this one, a song we caught during our Swag Session in 2017 and were so proud that we can champion him and continue to watch where his already successful career goes.

Next up was another artist that we chose back in 2018 as One to Watch, Jordan Davis. The singer-songwriter from Shreveport Lousiana already has two number one hits to his name and took full advantage of the sold-out crowd, running up and down the catwalk and interacting with the fans in the pit. His debut album, Home State is packed with radio-ready singles and he performed a few of them on Friday including “Selfish” which he mashed with Hailee Steinfeld’s “Starving”, “Leaving New Orleans”, and  “Tough to Tie Down”. He also covered Tim McGraw’s classic, “Something Like That”, putting his own spin on it.

Jordan Davis

His set wouldn’t be complete without performing both of his number one hits, “Take It From Me” and “Singles You Up”. At this point, the pit in front of the stage was completely packed and all of the seats were filled and at times the audience screaming back the lyrics was so loud you could barely hear Davis. He left the stage and the crowd ready to enjoy the final act and headliners of the night, Old Dominion.

Old Dominion

Mike Spotz (@illkoncept) for NYCountry Swag

We’ve seen the guys in Old Dominion in some of the smallest rooms in New York City over the past few years including Joe’s Pub, Housing Works Bookstore Cafe, and Arlene’s Grocery. The important thing to remember is that no matter the size of the room or the number of people who are there to see them, they always give 110% percent of not only a high-energy performance but they can set your soul on fire with their meaningful lyrics and delivery.

Old Dominion Brad Tursi

Playing to a sold-out room in a much bigger venue, Old Dominion did just that for the lucky fans in attendance. Their set included their biggest radio hits including “Snapback”, “Break Up With Him”, “Hotel Key” and “Written in the Sand”. They also included a few album cuts that haven’t made their way to the radio which we know fans of the band were happy about like “Said Nobody” and “Half Empty” from their debut album Meat and Candy.

Old Dominion

Highlights from their set included “New York At Night” where stunning visuals of our beautiful city lit up the background of the five band members as they sang lines like “With that just right Friday night curl in your hair / Got my heart beating louder than Madison Square / That electric energy / Something tells me you’re gonna keep me going til the morning light / Girl your like New York at night”. It seemed as if the songwriters (Brad Tursi, Trevor Rosen, and Jordan Schmidt) had written those lines specifically for that moment in time on Friday night.

Another rather surprising moment was when Matthew Ramsey stood at the front of the catwalk and announced they were going to sing their new song, “One Man Band” and from the first word to the last, the crowd was screaming the lyrics back to the band. It was such a special point of the night, watching loved ones turn to each other and sing the ballad, the emotion was palpable and could be felt throughout the room. Taking time to slow things down, Tursi, Rosen, and Ramsey took a seat at the top of the catwalk to chat with the audience about the culminating moments that led to them sitting in front of a sold-out crowd at Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theater. They played the songs they have written for other artists that have become hits including “Wake Up Loving You”, “Better Dig Two”, “Make You Miss Me” and Michael Ray’s latest number one “One That Got Away”. “Before you ever realized it, you were listening to our music, and before country radio ever realized it they were playing our music, and as broke ass songwriters in Nashville, you need every little bit of motivation you can get,” Ramsey told the crowd. “Every song made us want to write another one, crowds got a little bigger, shows got a little better, we kept writing, we kept playing until finally we can come to New York City and play in a beautiful room like this one.”

Old Dominion

Old Dominion closed the night with the first single revealed from their forthcoming project, the upbeat “Make It Sweet” and a throwback “Wrong Turns”. The magical night was the perfect way to kick off the summer concert season, bringing some of the best rising talents in Davis and Tenpenny as well as established stars Old Dominion to New York. Head to our calendar to find out all of the shows heading to our area this summer!

Mitchell Tenpenny Puts An Updated Twist On “Just To See You Smile”

Mitchell Tenpenny Just To See You Smile

On a Friday where throwback songs being updated is prevalent, Brooks & Dunn released REBOOT, a compilation of their biggest hits reimagined as duets with new country artists, Mitchell Tenpenny has released his own new spin on a classic. Tim McGraw’s “Just To See You Smile” was released in 1997 and not only hit the top of the charts but set what was then a record for being the longest-running single on the Billboard country chart since the inception of Nielsen SoundScan back in 1990.

The track written by Tony Martin and Mark Nesler was originally on McGraw’s album Everywhere and helped catapult the country artist into the superstardom where he remains today. The story is tried and true, doing everything in your power to make the one you love happy.

“Just to see you smile / I’d do anything , that you wanted me to / And all is said and done , I’d never count the cost / It’s worth all that’s lost, just to see you smile”

Whether its moving to a new state to allow them to follow their dreams, letting them have the space they asked for or letting them go when you know they’ll be happy with someone else, the heartbreaking tale is a classic.  Tenpenny who grew up in Nashville calls the song one of his favorites to cover on Instagram.  He takes the timeless song and slows it down, adds his unique vocal runs to really update the track. Hopefully his incredible rendition will make his set list while on the Make It Sweet Tour with Old Dominion and Jordan Davis. The tour hits the New York area twice, May 17th at Hulu Theatre at Madison Square Garden and May 25th at Bald Hill Amphitheatre on Long Island.

To keep up with Mitchell Tenpenny, follow him on InstagramTwitter, and Facebook.

“Just To See You Smile” is now available everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a listen below and check out more new recently released music here on our ‘New Country Music’ playlist. Be sure to give the playlist a follow for your weekly new country music fix.

Mitchell Tenpenny Releases “Alcohol You Later” Video

Mitchell Tenpenny "Alcohol You Later"

 

As a follow up to his debut single, and very first number one, “Drunk Me”, one of our 2019 Artists to Watch, Mitchell Tenpenny continues to change the narrative on drinking by releasing “Alcohol You Later”, a midtempo jam that has been a fan favorite at his live shows.

Last summer when Tenpenny sat down with NASH FM 94.7 for their Up Close & Country at Stage 17, he told the audience “So, like a lot of my song are written from experiences at a bar in Nashville called Losers…So I was sitting there and as a songwriter, you are always kind of just listening to people, trying to come up with ideas cause we write like every single day if we are in town and I just remember hearing this really country guy sitting right next to me and he just told his buddy, he was just saying goodbye but he said “Alright buddy, I’ll call ya later”, and it sounded like he said Alcohol You Later, and I wrote it down really quick.”  He went into the room the next day with that hook, and so, “Alcohol You Later” was born.

As the song arrives at country radio and climbs the charts, Tenpenny released a killer video yesterday to accompany the tune, directed by award-winning video director TK McKamy. The filtered video transitions from an empty bar to Tenpenny at home, singing about his on again off again fling that he will most likely be calling after a night of being out. As geometric shapes fly across the screen bringing you from one scene to the next, the colored filters are intriguing and add an interesting element to the visual. Check out the video below.

Fans can catch the singer-songwriter on Old Dominion’s Make It Sweet Tour which hits Hulu Theatre at Madison Square Garden on May 17th and out on Long Island at Bald Hill Amphitheater on May 25th.

Woman of the Month: Kristen Ashley

We’re bringing you stories from women who are chasing their dreams and building a life that they love with New York Country Swag’s, “Woman of the Month.”

Each month, we will highlight a different female pursuing her passions. Introducing you to women who are taking risks, working relentlessly and turning their dreams into reality. These are empowering women who serve as role models and should be celebrated.

Kristen Ashley

For February, we chose Kristen Ashley who hails from Trussville, Alabama, currently working with one of our 2019 Artists to Watch, Mitchell Tenpenny.  Ashley tells us during our recent phone interview that music was always very important to her, she was always the friend who would burn CDs and loved discovering new artists. “Country was definitely my heart but I also loved rap and sometimes I liked listening to Christian music, it was about the way the songs made me feel,” she tells us.  “I loved listening to album cuts, I started learning the songwriter’s names, I was more inspired about Lori McKenna, Hillary Lindsey, Shane McAnally, and Luke Laird. I was so excited about that part of it, it wasn’t just the artist.”

Just like many of us, growing up she wasn’t aware that there is an entire industry behind the music we hear on the radio or we see at concerts. That all changed on her 15th birthday when her mother surprised her with an opportunity to be in one of Brantley Gilbert’s music videos. Once she arrived on set, she met another Woman of the Month, JoJamie Hahr, and Leah Rhodes who’s husband was at the time, Manager of A&R at Warner/Chappell Nashville.

Opening her eyes to a brand new world, Ashley started to fall in love with the idea of working in the music industry, specifically publishing. Those connections with Leah and Blain Rhodes quickly turned into networking opportunities and when she moved to Nashville to attend Belmont University, she already had an upper hand, knowing people who were successful in the industry.

While attending Belmont University, she landed an internship at SB21, an independent music publishing company in Nashville where she learned about the details of a publishing company. By chance at CMAFest the following year, she was introduced to Jennifer Johnson at The Song Factory and her dream of working in publishing came to fruition. During her time there, she worked with Jon Pardi, Dillon Carmichael, and Ashley McBryde.

She explains that one of her favorite moments of her career so far was arranging Ashley McBryde to come to town and write with Jeremy Bussey. “She didn’t know anyone in my circle, and I just knew that she and Jeremy Bussey would hit it off and the very first time they wrote together they wrote “Girl Goin’ Nowhere” so that is my claim to fame,” she says of the Grammy-nominated song.

Then in November of 2015, she met a new singer-songwriter, a Nashville native named Mitchell Tenpenny. She started booking Tenpenny writes and working to help nurture his career, and then her boss at The Song Factory, Jennifer Johnson decided to start her own record label, Riser House and Tenpenny was the flagship artist. “I was working closely with Mitchell, I knew who to call for different aspects of his career. We formed a mutual respect for each other and I started doing the management stuff but without those intentions. Fast forward another year, I started booking shows for Mitchell, I ended up being Mitchell’s point person,” Ashley explains.

Eventually,  Ashley made the decision to form 11/10 Management signing Mitchell Tenpenny as her first client. She works closely with JT Pratt, RLM’s Coran Capshaw, and Enzo DeVincenzo and Haley McLemore of 377 Management.  She tells us that she is so happy to have an experienced team around her to turn to.

Kristen Ashley

Tenpenny released his debut studio album, Telling All My Secrets last December, and is currently on tour with Old Dominion on their ‘Make It Sweet’ Tour. He landed his very first number one song in December as well with “Drunk Me”.

Part of the day to day job of being his manager includes handling every aspect of his career. “There are a million different things going on in one time, getting ready for the Old Dominion Tour, ordering a new backdrop, designing new merch, getting a trailer made, meeting with his business manager, meetings with Sony to talk strategy for this year, meeting with his booking agents to confirm shows,” she tells us. “My day is never the same, it’s always different which I love.”

We asked what advice she would give to young people looking to work in the music industry, she says “Don’t care too much about the name of the company you intern for or work for, it’s about where you will get the opportunity to work, learn and grow,” Ashley says. “If you are at a smaller company, you learn so much so quickly. If it wasn’t for my internship I would have fallen on my face when I got my first job. If you have an opportunity to work, get paid, do what you love and be around good people, take the opportunity.”

She worked hard from the minute she knew what she wanted to do with her life.  “I think the reason I did get to where I am, I wasn’t expecting anything, if I see that something is missing or something needs to be done, I am someone who does it,” she says.  “I knew Mitchell was talented, I knew he needed to have his shows booked and his travel booked and I did it, without expecting anything in return. If you believe in someone, help people and in return, you will be taken care of.”

Mitchell Tenpenny Makes His Late Night TV Debut on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!

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.

Mitchell Tenpenny Performs “Drunk Me” on His ‘Today Show’ Debut

Today Show Debut Mitchell Tenpenny

Photo Courtesy of www.today.com

We have championed rising country star, Mitchell Tenpenny’s success for over a year now. Back in 2017, we hosted a Live Swag Session with the artist, who at the time didn’t even have a record deal. Flash forward, just one year later, and the singer-songwriter sold out his NYC headlining show, dropped his debut album Telling All My Secrets, and hit the number one spot on the country charts with his smash hit “Drunk Me.” Continuing the momentum into 2019, Tenpenny performed his single on NBC’s TODAY, this morning, as part of the Citi Concert Series, marking his first time on the show.

He was introduced by the co-anchors by saying, “Country singer-songwriter, Mitchell Tenpenny is poised for a big year. He ended 2018 by releasing his major label debut album and he’s not slowing down,” Tenpenny took some time to chat with the hosts, before delivering an epic performance of “Drunk Me.” When asked how he’s feeling about his journey thus far, the powerhouse singer explained, “We’re still living the dream. We have to pinch ourselves sometimes. This is crazy, we’re here in NYC with y’all.” Right after the sentiment, one of the hosts gave Tenpenny another “pinch me moment,” as he handed him his plaque that signified that “Drunk Me” went platinum.

Tenpenny, clearly blown-away, stated he was “speechless,” but still was able to deliver a cool rendition of the song with a four-piece band to back him. Donning, a ball-cap and a guitar, the singer belted the lyrics, adding some unique twists and having some fun throughout the entirety of the performance. Check out the clip below to watch!

 

The New York Country Swag 2019 Artist to Watch wraps up his album-release shows this week. Tenpenny heads to Luke Bryan’s ‘Crash my Playa’ country music festival in Mexico at the end of the month, just before beginning his opening-gig on Old Dominion ‘Make It Sweet Tour,’ at the end of February. Make sure to keep up with the breakthrough artist via his social media.
