Mitchell Tenpenny Releases Introspective ‘Walk Like Him’


Ahead of his debut Riser House/Columbia Nashville album Telling All My Secrets due everywhere on December 14, singer/songwriter Mitchell Tenpenny shares a new song, “Walk Like Him,” written by Tenpenny, Justin Ebach and Steven Dale Jones.

It took a long time for Tenpenny, who lost his father, Mitch, four years ago to a battle with cancer, to muster the words for “Walk Like Him.” It wasn’t until three years after his father passed that inspiration struck late one night driving his band’s van while everyone slept.

“It just hit me and I broke down that night. There was just something about the loneliness and everything, realizing that my dad’s not there,”the Nashville native revealed exclusively to People.

Everyone in his family had always said Tenpenny walked like his dad. He took that idea beyond the physical to what it would mean to walk like his late father both mentally and spiritually, something the soulful singer continues to do every day.
