Riser House/Columbia Nashville artist Mitchell Tenpenny is set to release “Midtown Diaries” EP on Sept. 10. The project contains eight songs all co-written by Tenpenny, including his current radio single, “Truth About You,” which became the largest streaming debut of his career (garnering 2.5 million streams in its first three days of release). Tenpenny produced “Midtown Diaries” alongside Jordan M. Schmidt. Pre-add/pre-save the EP here.
“We’ve waited a very long time to bring our fans a new collection of music,” Tenpenny said. “I’m so pumped with their enthusiasm each time we release a new song. Their feedback is priceless and it lets us know exactly how we are doing and feeds my creativity.”
Tenpenny debuted “Truth About You” for television audiences earlier this month with a performance on KTLA’s “Music Fest Fridays.” Written by Tenpenny, Matt Alderman and Thomas Archer, “Truth About You” is available here; and see the lyric video here.

Since the release of his debut single, “Drunk Me,” Riser House/Columbia Nashville artist Tenpenny has set new standards for breakout success in country music. The two-times-Platinum-certified, No. 1 hit that has amassed over 500 million on-demand streams was taken from his introductory 2018 album, “Telling All My Secrets,” and earned him the best first week showing for any major label country debut LP.
Since that time, the “winning” singer (the New York Times) was nominated for New Male Artist of the Year at the ACM Awards and Breakthrough Video (“Drunk Me”) at the CMT Music Awards and saw his “Alcohol You Later” and “Anything She Says” singles certified Gold.
