TENILLE RELEASEs Light ON March 12, 2013

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                    February 14, 2013
Toronto, ON – 2012 CCMA Slaight Music Humanitarian Award recipient Tenille will release her sophomore album Light on Tuesday, March 12, 2013. The album features the single “Dear Heart,” which is currently being played on Canadian Country radio. Additionally, on February 23 Tenille will host her annual Big Hearts For Big Kids fundraiser
at the TEC Centre in her hometown of Grande Prairie, Alberta. The
evening will include performances by Tenille as well as top Canadian
Country acts including Deric Ruttan, Jason McCoy, Victoria Banks, The
Jeffersons, Sean Hogan and Wyatt. To date, Big Hearts For Big Kids has
raised nearly $200,000. All proceeds go to Sunrise House; a Grand
Prairie-based, emergency youth shelter that serves a wide area of
Northern Alberta.
Based on the concept that light and hope can be found anywhere, even in the darkest corners of a person’s life, Light
showcases Tenille’s substantial growth as an artist and her belief that
music has the power to motivate people to make positive changes in
their own lives and the lives of others. Nowhere is that clearer than on
songs like “Pay It Forward,” the theme song for her 2012-2013 Canadian
‘Play It Forward’ tour, and lead single “Dear Heart,” co-written with
Gordie Sampson (Carrie Underwood, Martina McBride), Caitlyn Smith
(Rascal Flatts) and Kelly Archer (Jason Aldean, Dustin Lynch) – which
expresses Tenille’s willingness to share her own vulnerability and
openness with the world.
“I can’t wait to share Light
with everyone,” says Tenille. “The songs and the messages on this
record mean so much to me and I had a blast working on it with an
amazing team of musicians and my producer, Fred Mollin. Watching them
breathe life into these son
gs was an unforgettable experience.”
On the strength of her 2011 Royalty Records debut, Real,
which entered the SoundScan Country chart at #13 the first week of its
release, Tenille became the youngest artist ever nominated for the
coveted Canadian Country Music Award for Female Artist of the Year
(2011), and in 2012 the youngest recipient of the CCMA Slaight Music
Humanitarian Award. That same year the 18-year-old’s talent and
dedication garnered her the Grand Prairie and District Chamber of
Commerce Business Excellence Award for Young Entrepreneur of the Year.
In early 2013, Tenille took home the Association of Country Music in
Alberta’s Fan’s Choice Award, won the ACMA Female Artist of the Year Award for the second year running and was honoured with a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.
