“Drunk Me” singer Mitchell Tenpenny is celebrating the holidays earlier this year with a collection of Christmas songs titled, Neon Christmas.
The seven-track EP features brand-new songs “Snow Angels” and the title track, as well as holidays mainstays such as “Joy to the World,” “O Holy Night” and Tenpenny’s personal favorite, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”
“That’s always been one of my favorite songs,” the singer says of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.” “It just makes me feel like sitting in front of a fire or watching an old Christmas movie at my family’s house. I knew I could take and make that song more of my own too, which can be hard with Christmas songs.”
Additionally, on October 10, Tenpenny hosted a live streaming concert and two sold-out, in-person shows at Nashville’s Listening Room to raise money for his 10Penny Fund. The events raised $23,895.47 including a $10,000 match from Sarah Cannon, the Cancer Institute of HCA Healthcare, his partner in the 10Penny Fund, and a $2,000 donation from Sony Music Nashville label mate and friend, Chris Young.
