Country music fans may already know Tenille Townes from her breakthrough debut single, "Somebody's Daughter," or perhaps they've seen her on the road with Dierks Bentley for his 2019 Burning Man Tour. The up-and-comer is a 2019 CMT Next Women of Country class member who also recently made her Grand Ole Opry debut, and is poised to launch into the country mainstream this year.

Fans can expect plenty more new material from Townes in 2019: She's hard at work on new music, with a full-length album to come in the near future. She's already proved, though, she can hold her own alongside the genre's A-listers, duetting with Bentley on his song "Different for Girls" out on the road.

Read on to learn more about one of country music's fastest-rising stars, including the backstory behind her single, the reason she became a songwriter and why she's so excited to be out on the road for the Burning Man Tour.
