Tenille Arts Releases ‘Jealous of Myself’ With LeAnn Rimes [LISTEN]

Tenille Arts‘ new duet with LeAnn Rimes, “Jealous of Myself,” is out now. The song, Arts’ first release on the Dreamcatcher Artists record label, was a full-circle moment for the Canadian.

“LeAnn Rimes, The Chicks, Shania Twain and Kelly Clarkson were my idols growing up,” Arts shares. “LeAnn in particular has been a huge part of my story in country music since I was very young. One of my most viewed videos on TikTok is of me singing ‘Blue’ when I was 11 years old, and then it transitions to a full circle moment of performing it on the Opry. I am so grateful and humbled by LeAnn’s willingness to collaborate with me on this very special song. I will remember and cherish this forever.”

It was an easy decision for Rimes to join Arts on the song, which was written by Emily Weisband, John Byron and Trevor Rosen. Rimes also invited Arts to sing “Jealous of Myself” at her recent Ryman Auditorium concert.

“As soon as Tenille invited me to join her on ‘Jealous of Myself,’ I had to say yes,” Rimes says of the song. “The song and Tenille’s vocals are stunning. It’s an honor to collaborate with any artist that is as talented as Tenille, but after she shared her journey in music with me and how much I have influenced her, it made this opportunity even more special.”

A talented songwriter herself, Arts knew as soon as she heard “Jealous of Myself” that she wanted to include it on her new project.

“I really felt like it was a good time in my life to come out with it,” Arts tells Everything Nash. “I’ve always focused on my vocals, and I felt this song really showed them off. And [producer] Nathan Chapman and I worked on this in the studio to create that. But the song ‘Jealous of ‘Myself’ is different for me, ’cause I actually didn’t write it, which normally I pretty much write everything that I put out. Emily Weisband actually posted this song on TikTok and she was like, ‘I write music’ for other people. Does anybody wanna sing this song?’ And I fell in love with it.

“I heard the end of that chorus and I was like, ‘Dang, I wish I wrote that,’” she adds with a laugh. “So it’s a good one. And, thankfully, I got to sing it myself.”

Arts is currently serving as the opening act for Lee Brice for his Canadian Beer Drinking Opportunity Tour. Find “Jealous of Myself” and all of Arts’ music and upcoming shows at TenilleArtis.com.
