(Nashville, Tennessee...) - July 7, 2017 - Taste of Country has been a big supporter of Tenille Arts since naming her last November's
artist of the month. T
his week, the massive fan site premiered the new lyric video for her upbeat "Wildfire & Whiskey," a song which has already received over one million streams through Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music and other platforms.
The fun clip was directed by Andy Evinger and edited by Kristin Joyner for Artist Integration and can be viewed
"This was a fun, easy song to write," said Tenille, who penned the tune with Jason Massey. "It's a song about this great love that hits you really fast, and fills you with this great feeling
of rapid and spontaneous combustion like a shot of whiskey or a wildfire
. It came to life in the perfect way on the lyric video, and I can't thank Taste of Country enough for their support over the past year."
Music critic Robert K. Oermann gushed in his Music Row Magazine review of "Wildfire & Whiskey": "She is a Canadian writer-artist with a winsome, piercing delivery. The song is a lightly rocking, ridiculously catchy, brightly shining gem about falling head over heels. Promising in the extreme."
The Saskatchewan native and current Nashville resident co-wrote all six songs on her debut EP, which was produced by Adam Wheeler and Matt Rovey and released on 19th & Grand Records. The EP entered the Canadian iTunes Country Chart at #1 and hit #10 on the overall Canadian iTunes Chart and was featured on the front page in the coveted "New & Noteworthy" section. Soon after the release, she was named one of Pandora's "2017 New Artists To Watch."
About Tenille Arts: The 23-year-old behind all of this recent attention is quietly confident country music lover Tenille Arts (her real name) who was raised in the small Canadian prairie town of Weyburn, Saskatchewan. She 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 a little over a 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 800,000 views and have 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. After stumbling onto some of her online videos, popular country website whiskeyriff.com recently labeled Tenille a "new country artist name you need to know immediately."
