Mitchell Tenpenny’s EP, Midtown Diaries is Available Now

Mitchell Tenpenny‘s 8-track EP, Midtown Diaries is available now for fans to check out…

Mitchell shares that the title of the project was inspired by a part of Nashville that had a big influence on his life, “Midtown Diaries comes from, that’s where I hang out all the time. I mean, when we’re done writing songs, I go to Midtown…It’s just right off Music Row. Music Row is where a lot of the writing happens where a lot of the publishing companies and record labels are. So at the end of the day, it’s a really easy walk to get down to Midtown in Nashville. And a lot of these songs have derived from there. I’ve been broken up there, met my girlfriend there. I’ve got a lot of titles from songs there. So it just made sense. When I was putting together this project, this EP to name it after Midtown, because these songs wouldn’t exist honestly, without it.”

When it comes to the tracks on the EP, Mitchell says that the songs vary enough that he think there’s something for everyone, “I did so many different songs, so many different, you know, feels and vibes because I wanted people to be able to find their song. We have love songs. We have breakup songs. We have life songs. We have just weird songs, songs that I don’t know, I just want people to find their story. And to have their song on that record like I had growing up on different records and different songs.”

The one common thread through the entire project – which he had a hand in writing all of the tracks – is how the songs are all a part of Mitchell’s story, “It’s very important to me that we’re authentic and all these songs I’ve put together, you know. I’ve lived this life so I’m hoping people enjoyed it as much as I did writing it, and that they found their song in it.”
