TENILLE TOWNES’ ROAD TO THE LEMONADE STAND EP OUT FEBRUARY 7 DEBUT ALBUM THE LEMONADE STAND SET FOR RELEASE THIS SPRING TOUR DATES WITH ALAN JACKSON CONFIRMED
Acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Tenille Townes will release her new EP, Road to the Lemonade Stand, February 7 via Columbia Nashville . With the release of the EP, Townes is inviting fans to join her on the journey to her highly anticipated debut album, The Lemonade Stand, which will be released later this spring. Additional details to be announced soon.
Of the release, Townes shares, “I wanted to put out this EP to continue to tell the story of these songs. This EP is for everyone that has been on this road with me so far…the ones who have shared their stories at the shows and in messages and who have given these songs a home. You have shaped me and shaped the meaning of The Lemonade Stand. I’m so excited to walk on this Road to the Lemonade Stand with you.”
Produced by Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Little Big Town), the EP features five songs written by Townes including her current single, “Jersey On The Wall (I’m Just Asking),” as well as a rendition of Keith Urban’s “Stupid Boy.” Of “Jersey,” Rolling Stone praises, “precise and potent lyrics full of empathy…It’s not a love song or a party song, but a moment of country music existentialism,” while Music Row declares, “Tenille Townes is the future. Get on board now.”
In celebration of the release, Townes will tour extensively this year including two specials shows with Keith Urban in Las Vegas as well as a series of dates supporting Alan Jackson. Upcoming stops include Atlanta’s State Farm Arena, New Orleans’ Smoothie King Center, Fort Worth’s Dickies Arena, Tulsa’s BOK Center, Denver’s Pepsi Center and Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena among many others.
Canadian-born and Nashville-based, Townes recently won four awards at the 2019 Canadian Country Music Awards: Female Artist of the Year, Single of the Year (“Somebody’s Daughter”), Anthem Entertainment Songwriter of the Year and Video of the Year (“Somebody’s Daughter”). Winning all four of her nominated categories, Townes lead the night with the most awards received. She is also a MusicRow 2020 Next Big Thing Artist, an iHeartCountry’s “On The Verge” artist and has been included in Amazon Music’s “2019 Artists To Watch,” CMT’s “Next Women of Country,” iHeart Radio’s “Artists To Watch in 2019,” “The Bobby Bones Show’s” “Class of 2019,” CMT’s “Listen Up” and the inaugural class of “Opry NextStage.” Townes also recently participated in Cracker Barrel’s “Five Decades, One Voice” campaign—a project created to highlight the importance of women in country music by celebrating legendary female artists and those following in their footsteps. For the project, Townes was personally selected by Brandi Carlile to collaborate on new versions of two songs—Townes’ “Somebody’s Daughter” and Carlile’s “Fulton County Jane Doe.”
In addition to her work as a musician and songwriter, Townes remains committed to charitable causes including her own initiative, Big Hearts For Big Kids, which has raised over $1.9 million to date benefiting a youth shelter in her hometown of Grande Prairie, Alberta.
