Mitchell Tenpenny releases new song “Bigger Mistakes,” out now, July 28th, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new track below.
Singer-songwriter, Mitchell Tenpenny is coming off an extensive, 20-track album released last September that was full of fun and relatable stories. Tenpenny creates similar vibes with “Bigger Mistakes” and it’s the perfect song to aid listeners through a break-up. The Nashville-native admits several mistakes he has made in his past, all of which carry more weight than her leaving. The singer wants to assure this woman knows that he is well over their relationship.
“I’ve had so much more to lose // Hate to say it, baby, but you’re old news // I don’t even think about you when I’ve had a few // So get over yourself // I’ve made bigger mistakes than you”
Tenpenny co-wrote “Bigger Mistakes” with some of the industry’s most accomplished writers including Chris DeStefano (“That’s My Kinda Night,” “Eyes On You”) and Josh Kerr (“Before He Cheats,” “Need You Now”). The two have over 30 numbers combined. Michael Whitwork, who has cuts all over Tenpenny’s discography, also contributed to the track. Tenpenny’s powerful vocals shine through the heavy, upbeat production.
“I’ve always loved Carly Simon’s ‘You’re So Vain’ because of the line ‘you’re so vain you probably think this song is about you.’ That line just cuts to the core,” the “Drunk Me” singer explained. “Some people like to think the world revolves around them and I wanted to write a song that was a reminder that isn’t the case. ‘Bigger Mistakes’ is about realizing that there are bigger and more important things in life than a breakup. The song is a reminder that you’ve gone through harder times and the future can be bright.”
Fans can expect this to be the first taste of a bigger project from Tenpenny. For now, they can catch him on the Highway Desperado Tour this summer/fall with Jason Aldean. For tickets, head to his website.
