Weyburn’s Tenille Arts to perform at Grand Ole Opry

2019 has been quite the year for Weyburn country music artist Tenille Arts.

From performing a song on the reality TV show “The Bachelor,” to singing “O Canada” at the NBA Finals, to performing at a Rider game, the 25 year old has had many moments to cherish, but on Saturday night, she will have one that tops them all.

Arts will be performing for the very first time at the Grand Ole Opry which is where many an artist who have gone on to great things have performed. She said it is a dream come true to have the opportunity and that it is does cap off what has been a huge year for her.

“It’s definitely an incredible way to kind of end off this year, obviously it’s not quite over yet, but it’s definitely something that I’m always going to remember for the rest of my life, so it’s a big moment.”

Arts adds it’s something she has always dreamed of.

“It’s kind of one of those moments where it’s just kind of a pat on the back saying ‘you’ve done a lot in this industry and you deserve to be on this stage.”

The 25-year-old feels this signifies a gigantic moment in her career.

“It’s kind of like, very sacred, and I think to be invited to make your debut is just kind of a moment where your accepted into the country music community I think.”

Arts hopes that with what she and fellow Saskatchewan performers like Jess Moskaluke and the Hunter Brothers are doing that they are showing up and comers in the province that it can be done.
