Tenille Arts has built an enviable career releasing music that is as authentic as her beautiful voice and as heartfelt and direct as the songs she writes and records. The multi-award-winning entertainer and weaver of stories has set May 3rd, 2024 as the release date for her fourth full-length album, to be honest. The 14-song collection will be available on Dreamcatcher Artists and distributed through STEM. Pre-Order/Save/Add HERE.

“‘to be honest’ is the most important album of my musical journey so far, and I couldn’t be prouder of it,” said Tenille. “After celebrating the highest highs of my career, I ended up in a difficult place in my life. As always, I went to music to process what I was going through. These 14 songs share a truly honest take of where I’ve been in the past couple of years. I hope that when people listen they know that it’s okay to not be okay sometimes … and that there’s still so much happy and beautiful even in the hard times. I owe my fans something deeply real and I owe myself something deeply real. Thank you for taking the time to listen!”

Tenille co-wrote 12 of the songs on to be honest. “So Do I,” the final song recorded for the album, was written by King Henry, Demi Lovato, Sasha Sloan, and Laura Veltz and Arts’ hit single “Jealous of Myself” was written by Emily Weisband, Trevor Rosen, and John Byron. The title cut “To Be Honest” sets the tone for the entire record – “Love ain’t supposed to be easy. It’s supposed to be honest.”

The history-making team of Tenille, Alison Veltz Cruz and Alex Kline, who became the first all-female cast to write, record and produce a #1 country hit single with “Somebody Like That,” reconnected on this album with the insightful love story “Wonder Woman.”

This album includes both Tenille’s stunning “Jealous of Myself” duet with LeAnn Rimes, which Billboard called a “moody masterpiece with a classic misdirection,” and her streaming smash “Last Time Last” featuring award-winning duo Maddie & Tae.

On the touring front, Tenille has hit the road with many of her musical inspirations like Lady A, Luke Combs, Scotty McCreery, Lee Brice, and Jordan Davis, and this year will be returning to the UK to headline Almondsbury Creative’s Small Town, Big Music Festival in September. Ahead of this, she will be opening for the Canadian leg of Luke Bryan’s “Mind of a Country Boy Tour 2024”
