‘TRUTH ABOUT YOU’ Achieves the Shortest Span Between #1s In Modern Chart Era With Just Three Weeks Since His Last Chart Topper

‘This Is The Heavy’ Album Out This Friday, 16 September

Mitchell Tenpenny, Riser House/Columbia Nashville/Sony Music Nashville artist who has more than 1.3 billion global streams, made chart history yesterday with his #1 single ‘Truth About You.’ The gold-selling song’s top of the chart success is the shortest span between #1 songs in the modern chart era with just three weeks since his last chart topper. On 22 August, Tenpenny’s co-penned collaboration with labelmate Chris Young, ‘At The End Of A Bar,’ reached #1.

“It takes a huge team and support to bring a song to #1,” said Tenpenny. “I’m so thankful to everyone, including the fans, who believed this song was special and helped bring it to the top of the charts. And to have this #1 just three weeks after being part of my last one is unbelievable. Thank you country radio. You’ll never know how much this means to me. I’m just overwhelmed with thankfulness.”

In August 2021, Mitchell previewed ‘Truth About You’ for fans on TikTok. Their reaction to the song instantly created the largest streaming debut of his career with 2.5 million streams in the first three days and doubling that number within a week. As a result of this tremendous reaction, the song was sent to country radio that same month.

This Friday, 16 September Mitchell will release a new full studio album This Is The Heavy. He co-wrote every song on the 20-track album and co-produced the project with Jordan M. Schmidt. Pre-order/pre-add/pre-save the album HERE. In January 2023, Mitchell will headline “This Is The Heavy Tour” in promotion of his new release. The tour will kick off in Salt Lake City, Utah on January 26 at The Union Event Center. Warner Music Nashville’s Tyler Braden will open. Ticket and VIP package on now, go to for more information. The routing also includes back-to-back concerts at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on February 3 & 4.
