Mitchell Tenpenny breaks record after “Truth About You” reaches #1 at country radio


Mitchell Tenpenny hit #1 on the Mediabase country radio singles chart three weeks ago with his Chris Young collaboration “At The End Of A Bar.”  Now Tenpenny has again hit #1 with “Truth About You,” taking the top spot from Justin Moore’s “With A Woman You Love.” “Truth About You” also ranked as the Mediabase country panel’s most played and heard song for the September 4-10 tracking period.

With his latest No.1 song, Tenpenny has broken the modern-era record for shortest time between two separate chart-toppers.  Says Tenpenny:  “It takes a huge team and support to bring a song to #1.  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.”
