Tenille Arts ranked as ‘Country Artist to Watch’

Tenille Arts was recently announced as one of streaming giant Pandora’s 2017 “Country Artists To Watch”.
Arts, a powerhouse singer/songwriter who is a former Weyburn local, has been named to open the much anticipated co-headlining tour of JUNO Award nominees and CCMA Award winners Chad Brownlee and Tim Hicks at TCU Place in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on January 12, 2017.
A current resident of Nashville, Tenille stormed the iTunes charts by debuting at #1 on the Canadian Country chart and #10 on the overall Canadian iTunes chart with her debut self-titled EP last month.
She was nominated for the Canadian Country Music Association’s “Discovery Award” in September, and popular country website whiskeyriff.com recently labeled her a “new country artist name you need to know immediately.”
The 22-year-old behind all of this recent attention is a quietly confident country music lover who 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 one short year ago, and a songwriting session late last year turned her life upside down in a very positive way, when she was noticed by award-winning producer Matt Rovey (Craig Campbell, Dean Brody), songwriter/producer Adam Wheeler and Noble Vision Music Group head Hal Oven.
Videos on her YouTube channel have garnered over 775,000 views and led to her being featured twice on Bob Kingsley’s nationally syndicated Country Top 40 Countdown and on the Woody and Jim morning show on 107.5 The River in Nashville. Local residents can catch up with Tenille at www.TenilleArts.com, and follow her on Facebook and Twitter.
Chad Brownlee is by definition a renaissance man. He is a proud native of British Columbia and an award-winning singer, songwriter, philanthropist and former NHL draft pick (for the Vancouver Canucks). With over a billion radio impressions to date, he has had multiple singles crack the national Top 10, including his last two singles “Hearts On Fire” and “I Hate You For It.”
“I Hate You For It” was also the top selling country digital song by a Canadian artist (source: Nielsen Soundscan) for 10 weeks earlier this year. His latest single, “Somethin’ We Shouldn’t Do,” was released to Canadian radio last month. He has received critical acclaim and numerous accolades including a highly coveted 2013 JUNO nomination for Country Album of the Year and most recently multiple 2016 Canadian Country Music Association® (CCMA®) Award ™ nominations, including Album of the Year for Hearts On Fire.
Tim Hicks released “Shake These Walls”, the follow up to 2014’s CCMA Award nominated sophomore album “5:01/5:01+” in September. The album is a combination of slick party-fueled anthems, blue collar country and free-spirited romance, shaping the evolution of an artist the Toronto Star named “one to watch” and one who remains intent on leading the pace within an evolving musical landscape. Co-written by Hicks, Shake These Walls debuted as the #1 selling Canadian Country Album on the Nielsen SoundScan Top Country Albums Chart, bringing the acclaimed country artist front and centre for his proverbial close-up.
With over one million streams at Spotify, Hicks celebrated his highest charting hit single last month with “Stompin’ Ground,” and this week he boasts the #1 most added song at Canadian Country Radio with “Slow Burn”.
