Tenille Arts Shares ‘What He’s Into’ in New Video [Exclusive Premiere]
Tenille Arts has released a music video for her new single, "What He's Into," and Taste of Country has the exclusive premiere.
In the video, Arts sings to the camera while in the middle of a back road, in between shots of playing guitar on the front porch of her cabin in the woods and driving around in vintage vehicles with her friends before heading off to the beach for a bonfire. The catchy track is a perfect fit for current country radio with its pop-country sound and lyrics like, "He's into my songs / Into my guitar / He's into riding shotgun in my fast car / Yeah he's into everything about me. "
A native of Canada, Arts was featured as Taste of Country's Artist of the Month in November of 2016 as part of our #LetTheGirlsPlay coverage, performing her original song, "I Can Do the Leaving," in addition to helping cover Little Big Town's latest hit, "Better Man," which was penned by Taylor Swift. Arts says she grew up listening to country superstar Shania Twain, who helped inspire her music career.
"I was singing in my backyard, just like belting out Shania Twain songs and my neighbor overheard my singing and told my mom, ‘Maybe you should put her in voice lessons,'" she recalls. After moving to Nashville and signing a publishing deal in 2015, the rising newcomer quickly became sought-after. Her self-titled EP hit No. 1 on the Canadian iTunes chart, reached the Top 10 overall and earned her a nod as one of Pandora's 2017 Country Artists to Watch.
"I probably wouldn’t have dreamed this big a year ago," she says. "I just didn’t realize how many things could happen so quickly with me being here. You can set up that meeting tomorrow and just everything can happen a lot faster. I wasn’t prepared for that."
