The Tuesday Night Event at The ARA Show™ 2024 in New Orleans will feature amazing food, culture and music at House of Blues New Orleans on Tuesday, Feb. 20. Headlining the event will be music from country singer Mitchell Tenpenny.

Tenpenny is a multi-faceted entertainer: singer, songwriter, producer and performer. Since the release of his debut, three-time platinum-certified No. 1 hit single, “Drunk Me,” he’s set new standards for breakout success in country music. He was recognized for surpassing the one billion streams threshold, now surpassing 1.5 billion global streams. Tenpenny’s latest album, “This Is The Heavy,” contains the platinum-selling No. 1 hit “Truth About You,” a song that made chart history with the shortest span between No. 1 songs since 1982 with just three weeks since his last chart topper. “Truth About You” followed Tenpenny’s co-penned No. 1 collaboration with labelmate Chris Young on the Academy of Country Music (ACM) Music Event of the Year-nominated “At The End Of A Bar.” Tenpenny’s current radio single, “We Got History,” is making its way up the charts.

In August, Tenpenny released a new song, “Bigger Mistakes,” for his fans in time for his performances as the direct support act on Jason Aldean’s “Highway Desperado Tour.”

Tenpenny is a two-time ACM Award nominee and also has been nominated for a CMT Award. His performances have been seen on “Today,” “CMT Awards,” “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “The Kelly Clarkson Show” and “ACM Awards.”

House of Blues New Orleans is a premier entertainment venue and with the ambiance of an old Southern Delta juke joint in the French Quarter. The Tuesday Night Event takes place from 7-10 p.m. and is sponsored by John Deere and Toro.
