A Saskatchewan-born country singer has plans to put out a new album this spring, describing it as “the breakup album I didn’t know I was writing.”

Tenille Arts, originally from Weyburn, posted online that her next album, titled “To Be Honest”, is set for release May 3.

Several of the tracks are already available on various music streaming platforms, including a duet with LeAnne Rimes titled “Jealous of Myself.”

“I owe you guys something real, and I owe myself something real,” Arts wrote in her announcement post. “I love you all and I cannot wait for you to hear these 14 songs.”

“To Be Honest” will be the 29-year-old’s fourth full-length album, and her first since 2021’s “Girl to Girl”, which was nominated for Country Album of the Year at the following year’s Juno Awards.

The Oklahoma native will headline a Friday night show at FirstOntario Centre ahead of the 110th championship game at Tim Horton’s Field in Hamilton on Nov. 19.

Underwood, who has sold more than 85 million records worldwide and recorded 28 No. 1 singles, will return to the city for her first concert since 2016.

Pre-sale tickets for all the Grey Cup Music Festival concerts, including the Friday, Nov. 17 show featuring Underwood, will be open first for all Grey Cup ticket-holders.

For new and experienced guests, the experience is enjoyable.

“Good time with good people,” said Keen Bresuh, a guest of the festival.

Benoit said a lot goes into the preparation for the event and is happy with how everything is turning out.

“Our site crew did a really great job laying some new sod, weve got some new activations out there,” she said. “Everything came together really well for us this year.”

Justin Moore first met Priscilla Block when they played together at a charity event about two years ago. He felt sorry for the North Carolina native, who was about 25 years old at the time. She didnt have any hits yet and was the only girl on stage with a group of men who, in some cases, were well over a decade older than her.

Moore remembered how it felt to be in that position, when artists line up on stage with their guitars, and everyone but the newcomer has a No. 1 song to play.

That, to me, was always like, Why am I here? he said. This sucks. But she stole the show. Her rapport with the audience was great, she sang great, and the songs were great.

A couple of months later, when he was pitched You, Me and Whiskey, he thought of Block.

I thought, Man, thatd be cool if that Priscilla girl would do this, he said. She said, Yeah. Now weve gotten to know each other a lot better. Shes really talented. I think shes got a really bright future ahead. She cracks me up, too. She kind of reminds me of me a little bit when I first started.

You, Me and Whiskey is from Moores new album Stray Dog, which is out now. The album is Moores seventh on The Valory Music Co., and includes the song Everybody Get Along with Riley Green and his hit “With A Woman You Love.”

Ive been a big Justin fan for a long time, Block said. His musics just really country, and I love that. The duet was such an easy yes. It feels like I could have written the song, so yeah, this is my first duet and thats huge.

Over the course of his career, Moore has recorded songs with Miranda Lambert, Vince Neil of Motley Crue, Charlie Daniels, Hank Williams Jr., Brantley Gilbert and more. However, You, Me and Whiskey is the first duet Moore has released to country radio.

He said his duet with Riley Green reminds him of an old Hank Williams Jr and Willie Nelson duet that mimics a conversation.

I say a line, he sings a line, so its kind of fun and funny at the same time, Moore said.

Get Rich or Drunk Trying is another song that makes Moore laugh. He was inspired to write the song when rapper 50 Cent released his 2003 debut Get Rich Or Die Tryin.

I thought, Thats a terrible alternative to not getting rich, Moore said. I thought to myself, Id rather get drunk if I dont get rich.

Moore wrote Everybody Get Along with David Lee Murphy and Jeremy Stover. Moore and Stover, along with Casey Beathard and Paul DiGiovanni, penned Get Rich or Drunk Trying.

Both songs are funny, he said. Ive kind of always had humor intertwined in my music.

The Arkansas-based singer might be laughing on stage, but the father of four explained hes the father of a teenage girl now, which is no laughing matter. Moore and his wife Kate are parents to four children, and their oldest, Ella, turned 13 in February.

It sucks, Moore said. She doesnt come out of her room. Ive seen her room. Its not that spectacular. I mean, not to stay in there eight hours a day.

Ella also just went to a dance with a boy for the first time. Moore hated it and said it made him grouchy for a week.

My wifes like, Its no big deal, he said. I go, It is a big deal. Its a big deal. They did the whole thing, the hair getting done, the makeup – I cant stand it. I was not happy, but its part of life, and I know its normal. Theres nothing wrong with it, but as a dad, I still hate it.

Moore has tried to structure his career around his family since he and his wife started having kids. He wanted them to grow up in Arkansas around his parents, and Kates parents live there, too. He also coaches them in baseball, softball and basketball. Moore and his family are sports fanatics, and he spends hours at ball practice almost every day he isnt on the road. He started coaching when Ella was 5 years old. She started playing at 4, and thats when he and his wife discovered that the singer couldnt watch patiently from the stands.

It was one of those first years Im sitting there going, Theyre costing us runs by not running these kids, Moore said. I did this the whole game. Kate goes, Youre effing coaching next year because Im not going to put up with this, you sitting here doing this. So Ive been coaching ever since.

Ella now plays on a junior high team that Moore doesnt coach. Her first game was the only time in eight years that Moore had to sit in the stands and watch.

I sat like a normal parent and absolutely hated it, he said. She played good. Shes better than I was.

Moore said its important to him to coach his kids because his father did it for him. His father didnt have a career in country music, but he worked and was exhausted for 18 years while going to work and coaching Moore in sports.

I know that I only have this small window of time to do these things, and when its over, its over, he said. Ive realized youre just kind of whooped for 18 years. But you know, those are memories that we get to create.

He laughed, then added: I love sports probably more than music, to be honest. I just stop growing at 56, or Id be doing that.
