Five days before the release of his Riser House/Columbia Nashville debut album Telling All My Secrets on Friday, December 14, Mitchell Tenpenny’s lead single, “Drunk Me,” takes the No. 1 position on this week’s Mediabase/Country Airplay chart. Co-produced by Tenpenny and Jordan M. Schmidt and co-written by Tenpenny, Schmidt and Justin Wilson, the Gold-certified “Drunk Me” reaches the summit of the country radio airplay chart while concurrently amassing over 120 million streams.
 
“I recorded ‘Drunk Me’ after pitching it to other artists in town for over six months,” remarks Tenpenny. “I believed in my heart it was such a special song and that it would be a hit for someone. I never dreamt it would be the song labels first heard from me, resulting in a record deal … or that it would go on to bring us our first single, yet alone a number one.”

He continues, “It’s been a two-year journey with this song, yet so many believed, and so, this is one of those moments we all share together – my co-writers, our band and record label, country radio and all the fans that have streamed it over 120 million times. I can’t get over you. You’ve changed my life.”
