Mitchell Tenpenny is helping usher in the holidays this year with a new 11-song Christmas set, Naughty List. The project will be available on Oct. 29 through Riser House/Columbia Nashville, and the title track is out everywhere now.
Produced by Mitchell, Jordan M. Schmidt and Lindsay Rimes, Naughty List contains all seven tracks from Mitchell’s 2020 project, Neon Christmas, as well as four additional tracks, including two originals co-written by Mitchell–“Don’t Hang The Mistletoe” and “I Hope It Snows.”
“I love all Christmas music,” shares Mitchell. “It always brings me back to my childhood and sharing the holidays with my family. ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’ is probably my favorite of all time. Makes me think of sitting by the fire and watching Christmas movies. But I love I was able to write a few new songs that are included too!”
The Christmas project follows Mitchell’s Midtown Diaries EP, which was released last month. The EP contains his current single, “Truth About You,” which was his largest streaming debut to date, garnering 2.5 million streams in its first three days of release. Tenpenny also headlined his first hometown show at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium this past weekend (Oct. 10).
