“I’m a huge fan of Tenille, and I kind of just cold emailed her asking if she’d be willing to be part of the song,” Nate shared upon the song’s release. 

“I was such a fan of Nate’s voice and had been hearing the song already and loving it,” Tenille added. “It’s so fun to sing this with him so I’m so glad he reached out.”

Written by Smith and Daniel Fernandez, “I Don’t Wanna Go To Heaven” has amassed over 25 million worldwide streams to date. 

In a recent interview with Country Now, the rising star revealed that they didn’t initially plan to release the song at first. 

“We had other ideas that I feel would’ve been awesome. But, with this one, I put the demo up on TikTok, and people just started sharing it a lot and duetting it and stuff….People were telling me, ‘This is going to be my first dance at my wedding,’ and all of this crazy stuff. So, we realized we were on a time limit there. To me, that song talks about not taking life for granted. It talks about appreciating the people you love in your life right now.”
