Mitchell Tenpenny On Quitting Sports and First Song on Radio
Mitchell Tenpenny is promoting his next single and currently touring. He stopped by The Bobby Bones Show virtually to talk about his latest projects and share stories about his time playing sports, as well as his relationship.
Before pursuing music full time, Tenpenny was also an athlete playing college football. However, he wasn't able to keep up with playing music until 3 a.m. and then waking up a few hours later each day to go to football practices. He played linebacker and tight end and admitted that he did get a lot of concussions. Pursuing his music career worked out for him though, and he talked about the first time he heard his song on the radio. It actually caught Tenpenny off guard because he thought he was playing his mixes. Then he looked at the stereo system to see the radio playing. He called his mom and confessed they had a good little cry.
