LeAnn Rimes and Tenille Arts have teamed up on a special new rendition of Arts’ current single, “Jealous of Myself,” set for release tomorrow (April 14).
A life-long fan of LeAnn, Arts saw her perform “Blue” on the Grand Ole Opry as a kid. The appearance created a spark for Tenille’s dream of following in the superstar’s footsteps. The video of Tenille singing the hit song at age 11 and transitioning into her own recent Opry appearance became one of her most popular TikTok moments. In a full-circle moment, Rimes invited Arts to perform “Blue” at her sold-out Ryman Auditorium concert last weekend.
“LeAnn Rimes, The Chicks, Shania Twain and Kelly Clarkson were my idols growing up,” says Arts. “LeAnn in particular has been a huge part of my story in country music since I was very young. One of my most viewed videos on TikTok is of me singing ‘Blue’ when I was 11 years old, and then it transitions to a full circle moment of performing it on the Opry. I am so grateful and humbled by LeAnn’s willingness to collaborate with me on this very special song. I will remember and cherish this forever.”
“As soon as Tenille invited me to join her on ‘Jealous of Myself,’ I had to say yes,” says Rimes. “The song and Tenille’s vocals are stunning. It’s an honor to collaborate with any artist that is as talented as Tenille, but after she shared her journey in music with me and how much I have influenced her, it made this opportunity even more special.”
Written by Emily Weisband, Trevor Rosen and John Byron, “Jealous of Myself” is the first single ever released by Dreamcatcher Artists. Arts is currently on the road with Lee Brice, opening his “Beer Drinking Opportunity Tour.”
