Earlier this year, Tenpenny scored a number 1 with “Truth About You.” He recalled his friend in the writing room telling a story that said something to the effect of “If you quit telling lies about me, I won’t tell the truth about you,” which sparked Tenpenny to say he knew how they could make that into a song.
With his new album This Is The Heavy, Tenpenny could have some more hits coming for him since there are 20 songs on the project. He admitted they thought they were done when they hit 11 songs, but then he kept writing songs he loved and they kept adding them to the project. Once they hit 19 songs, he knew he had to make it an even 20.
He also shared stories about going to school to be a songwriter and his time as a valet, where he ran into Tim McGraw and Martina McBride!
