Review: ‘Naughty List’ – Mitchell Tenpenny

Tenpenny is really enjoying life right now, not long after the release of ‘Midtown Diaries’ he returns with his Christmas record, ‘Naughty List’.

The album has that upbeat, country-rock vibe to it that we’ve come to know and love from Tenpenny. It features a good mix of originals and classics starting with the fun-loving ‘Neon Christmas’ written by Tenpenny, Lindsay Rimes and Matt Rogers. It’s a great start to the record which sees Tenpenny’s vocals at their strongest. It starts as it means to go on as a smile instantly spreads across your face.

His rendition of ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ is imaginative whilst ‘Joy to the World’ offers a very contemporary vision of the classic carol. However, it’s the songs he’s penned himself that set this apart from other Christmas albums, the title track has so much style, the melodies so rhythmical whilst ‘Snow Angels’ with it’s ballad feel has a strong chorus.

A brilliant addition to every country fans Christmas collection.
