The Henningsens’ Self-Titled EP Releases Today!

Hot Debut Single, “American Beautiful,” Continues to Climb the Top 20 as The Henningsens Hit the Road Again This Weekend on Brad Paisley’s Beat This Summer Tour

Arista Nashville recording group The Henningsens today release their self-titled digital EP, featuring their Top-20-and-climbing debut single, “American Beautiful.” The release marks another rewarding milestone for the trio, who embarked on their first major tour on May 9 on Brad Paisley’s Beat This Summer Tour, just days after the May 4 wedding of lead singer Clara Henningsen.

Produced by four-time GRAMMY® winner Paul Worley (Lady Antebellum, Martina McBride), the four-song EP was co-written by The Henningsens alongside some of Nashville’s top tunesmiths.

A family band consisting of Clara Henningsen (lead vocals, guitar), Aaron Henningsen (guitar, vocals), and their father Brian Henningsen (bass, guitar, vocals), the trio’s debut EP showcases a sound that is fresh, vibrant, and uniquely their own, with Clara’s expressive and inviting vocals center stage, together with gorgeous family harmonies, compelling songcraft, and vivid storytelling.

The Henningsens EP track listing:
“American Beautiful” (Aaron Henningsen/Brian Henningsen/Clara Henningsen/Brett Beavers)
“I Miss You” (Aaron Henningsen/Brian Henningsen/Clara Henningsen/Don Poythress)
“To Believe” (Aaron Henningsen/Brian Henningsen/Clara Henningsen/Jimmy Yeary)
“The Color Red” (Aaron Henningsen/Brian Henningsen/Clara Henningsen/Lisa Carver)

The EP is available here:

This week, “American Beautiful” is at #16 and #17, respectively, on the Country Aircheck and Billboard country airplay charts.

Look for the band on the road now on Brad Paisley’s Beat This Summer Tour presented by Cracker Barrel Old Country Store®. This weekend, the tour will roll through Toronto, ON, on May 31, with dates in Pittsburgh, PA, on June 1 and Saratoga Springs, NY, on Sunday, June 2.

Amid the early praise on tour, The Boston Globe called out the band’s “pleasant heartland rock” and Clara’s “clear vocals,” while Massachusetts’ The Sun Chronicle lauded the band’s performance as “all-too-brief,” proclaiming, “Their ‘American Beautiful’ was lush and riveting.”
