Rising country star Tenille Arts is celebrating a history-making No.1 single this week as her breakout hit, “Somebody Like That,” reached the top spot on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart. 

“Somebody Like That” was co-written by Arts alongside Allison Cruz and Alex Kline, making the track the first song in country music history that was written, performed and produced by all females to hit No.1. Additionally, Kline makes history as the sole producer of the song, becoming the first solo female producer to have a No.1 single at country radio. 

Taking 70 weeks to climb to the top of the chart, “Somebody Like That” also notches the longest chart run for a female artist in the history of Mediabase/Country Aircheck.

“Words cannot describe how I feel right now,” the ACM nominated artist shared upon hearing the news. “Thank you country radio and the DSPs for believing in and supporting this song, thank you to everyone who wrote about this journey, thank you to all of the fans who listened, requested and streamed this song, and thank you to my amazing team who have supported me from the beginning. You’ve changed my life forever.”

Arts, who was one of the five CRS New Faces of Country Music for 2021 and named to CMT’s Next Women of Country Class of 2021, first debuted “Somebody Like That” during her debut appearance at the Grand Ole Opry in September of 2019. Now, 19 months later, she has the No.1 single. 

“I can’t wait to continue to write this story together,” Tenille Arts shared. Dreams really do come true!”
