Country artist Mitchell Tenpenny is living in the here and now on his new song, “Bucket List.”
The “carpe diem” track serves as a timely reminder to listeners to live in the present and cross out longtime dreams off their bucket list. Tenpenny co-wrote it with hit songwriters Chris DeStefano and Laura Veltz.
“Imma cross one off / Put two more on it / Say I love you before the moments gone / And never have to ask myself what if / When I get to the bottom of my bucket list,” the singer proclaims proudly on the chorus.
In the accompanying scenic music video, Tenpenny took a five-day trip to Arizona in conjunction with the state’s tourism bureau. There, the Tennessee native managed to cross off a few places to visit from his bucket list; which includes Sedona, the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, and Lake Powell/Antelope Canyon.
“It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life!” Tenpenny exclaimed enthusiastically. “We got to see so many things I’ve never had the chance to stop and take in during this video. I can watch this video for the rest of my life and remember those moments.”
Prior to this, Tenpenny released his holiday EP Neon Christmas, in addition to the songs “Can’t Go To Church,” “Here,” and his cover of the pop hit, “Someone You Loved.” His current single, “Broken Up,” is currently climbing the country radio charts.
