With a title like “Drunk Me,” fans might have expected something different than what they get when they hear Mitchell Tenpenny's debut single. After first listen, however, the song immediately connects with many, something that Mitchell has noticed while chatting with fans. He said, “Some days really inspire creativity and others can just take it right out of you. I think that’s why I write the way I do as the business is like songwriting: there’s beauty and pain, it just depends on your perspective. ‘Drunk Me’ is an aberration, yet we’ve all been there. We’ve had fans tell us after performing it on the road that it’s helped them – and not just kept them from drunk dialing, but it’s helped them grieve and connect in a way we never expected the song to do, so in that way, this being our first Top 20 is really special as it’s taken on different meanings with so many people.”
He added, “I’m so humbled to be in this position – I know the work that goes into even getting a song played on the radio, so to be Top 20 on our first single, and to have the fans requesting it like they are, is so special. I’ve waited my whole life for this moment. Thank you for giving ‘Drunk Me’ a shot!”
Mitchell is still working on his debut album, which is expected out later this fall.
