Grande Prairie’s own Tenille paid a visit to the region Tuesday to co-host Mighty Peace Day.
Tenille says she is really grateful to be living in Nashville and working hard towards her dream of being a country music star, but says she owes a lot to the Peace Region for helping her get to where she is today.
“I’ve loved growing up in this community, singing at all kinds of local events and singing the National Anthem at all our Storm hockey games for a long time. I just owe so much gratitude to the support in this community for helping build up this dream and it’s really something to have a dream and to think of it being way off in the someday and then small step by small step, someday comes closer than you think.”
While at Mighty Peace Day, one of the messages Tenille wanted to get across to youth was to never stop working towards their dreams.
“Just be fearless, do it because you love it, for no other motivation than because it’s what you want to wake up in the morning and do. It certainly isn’t always going to be rainbows and sunshine, but it’s always going to be the light in you that has nowhere else to go but to exist.”
She says she won’t be performing again in the near future but will be producing songs.
“I’m back to Nashville just focusing on writing for the next little while and hopefully getting in the studio to work on a record soon.”
