Mitchell Tenpenny and Teddy Swims team up for the collaboration ‘Elephant In The Room’


Mitchell Tenpenny debuted a new song and music video for his song “Elephant In The Room” featuring Teddy Swims. Tenpenny says of the song: “‘Elephant in the Room’ is about that innate thing in us as humans when we can feel it when someone is watching us. This song is a love story about two people who have this kind of chemistry and energy happening from across the room. And everyone else can feel it too because it’s so powerful.”

The music video, directed by Stephen Kinigopoulos and Alexa Stone, stars both artists and features them vying for the love of the same woman, and concludes with a “crime of passion” where the female love interest kills Tenpenny’s character and then pins the murder on Swims’ character, leading to his arrest.

Tenpenny’s current single at country radio is “Truth About You” which he debuted on TikTok before it became the highest steaming debut of his career.  Tenpenny will join Luke Bryan on the Raised Up Right Tour beginning on June 9, and will join Luke Combs this fall on the Middle Of Somewhere Tour in Bangor, Maine on September 2 and 3 at the Maine Savings Amphitheater.   Meanwhile, Swims is currently on the road with his Tough Love World Tour, which concludes on June 9 in Glasgow.
