Tenille Townes’ new rendition of Leonard Cohen’s iconic song, “Hallelujah,” is available now.
Of her decision to record the song, Townes shares, “This song brings me comfort and hope, and during these times, we could all use a little bit of both. I wanted to share my version of this song because it holds a special place in my heart. It played an instrumental role in my signing at Sony Music and it has always been a special song to me, but right now, this song has reached a different place in me than it ever has before. I hope the word ‘Hallelujah’ carries a reminder that we’re going to be ok.”
The release continues a breakout year for Townes, who recently won New Female Artist of the Year at the 55th Academy of Country Music Awards and is still nominated for Musical Event of the Year for “Fooled Around and Fell in Love” with Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Ashley McBryde, Caylee Hammack and Elle King at this year’s ceremony.
