Grande Prairie musician and songwriter Tenille Townes had a huge announcement to make Friday.

The 24-year-old who now lives in Nashville, has signed a major label recording contract.

"I am officially a Columbia Nashville Artist!" The overjoyed Townes told Lyle West, Morning Host with Big Country 93.1, during an interview Friday Morning.

She said she was thinking back and reflecting on the path that got her here.

"How much all of you guys have been such a big part of it," she said. "It makes me so happy that we can celebrate all of this together."

From here, Tenille says she will work with her new team to get her music out to the world. She has released Living Room Worktapes, a collection of acoustic songs.

"This is kind of the beginning of introducing some new music. These are four acoustic songs, going back to the way that they were written.  This is kind of just me picking up the guitar and playing them the way I would for you in a living room."

Living Room Worktapes is available on various platforms including; iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon, and YouTube.

Townes will open for Maren Morris on Friday in Pioneertown, CA.  She is off to Las Vegas for the Academy of Country Music Awards Saturday.  It will be her first time attending the awards.  She is also playing the ACM Party for a Cause Saturday night.

Then this summer, Townes hits the road for the Bandwagon Tour with Little Big Town and Miranda Lambert.
