Tenille Arts has had a year of incredible milestones, the most recent of which is hitting the #1 spot on the Radio Disney Top 50 Country Chart two weeks in a row with her “Somebody Like That” single. She will kick off the new year by making an unprecedented third appearance on ABC’s top-rated show The Bachelor on Monday, January 6, 2020, at 8/7c. The three-hour premiere of season 24 will see her perform “Somebody Like That” for new bachelor Peter Weber.
Tenille made her first appearance on the show in 2018 singing her original song “Moment of Weakness,” which led to her being signed to Nashville’s Reviver Records. Producers were so taken with her talent, they invited her back to perform “I Hate This” in January of this year. Following the performance, the song hit #1 on the iTunes Canada and U.S. Country Chart, #9 U.S. all-genre chart and propelled her 2017 Rebel Child album to re-enter the iTunes Country Albums chart at #5. “I Hate This” received over two million streams in just four days following the show.
She wrote “Somebody Like That” with Alex Kline and Allison Veltz. The three were reflecting on the love they grew up around with their parents and grandparents, a universal love many seek, and The Bachelor producers felt it was a perfect song for the show. The single is her second to hit the top spot on the Radio Disney Top 50 Country Chart. “I Hate This” reached #1 in January of this year. Listen to “Somebody Like That” and view the video HERE.
