Newcomer Mitchell Tenpenny makes it to #1 on the country chart this week with his debut single,  “Drunk Me.”

Ironically, Mitchell was discovered as he was trying to get another artist to cut that song, which he co-wrote.

“I recorded ‘Drunk Me’ after pitching it to other artists in town for over six months,” the Nashville native explains. “I believed in my heart it was such a special song and that it would be a hit for someone.”

He continues, “I never dreamt it would be the song [that] [record] labels first heard from me, resulting in a record deal, or that it would go on to bring us our first single, yet alone a number one.”

Mitchell’s debut album, Telling All My Secrets, comes out on Friday.
