BMI and SESAC recently recognized Tenille Arts‘ “Somebody Like That” hitting No. 1 at country radio back in April of this year.
The intimate celebration on the Hampton Social rooftop celebrated country music’s first No. 1 song written, performed, and produced exclusively by women with songwriters Arts (BMI), Allison Veltz Cruz (SESAC), and Alex Kline (SESAC). The Platinum-certified single broke multiple records along the way and marked the first U.S. country radio No. 1 single from a Canadian artist since 2007.
The first No. 1 for Arts and Kline and the second for Veltz Cruz, the party featured presentations from major players on the writers’ teams, including Gator Michaels, Hal Oven, Pete Robinson, Derek Simon, and party hosts, Leslie Roberts and Shannan Hatch.
Arts’ latest single, “Back Then, Right Now,” is currently climbing the charts at country radio. She will hit the road in early 2022, joining both Dierks Bentley and Scotty McCreery on their respective headlining tours.
