Singer/songwriter Tyler Farr is in the midst of earning his country music chops. Inspired as a growing teenager by his stepfather, a former guitarist for the late country legend George Jones, the Missouri native relocated to Nashville to try his hand at breaking into the business. And it’s working. After just a few months earning his keep as security at the city’s iconic honky-tonk Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, the young musician segued into regular concerts on the club’s stage, and nowadays onto the tour trail opening for the likes of Jason Aldean.
Farr’s raspy Southern accent complements his true country songwriting, which makes up more than half of his debut studio set, “Redneck Crazy.” And when he’s not performing for ticket holders on a club and theater trek, he’s writing tracks for Colt Ford (“Hey Y’all”) and Joe Nichols (“She’s Just Like That”), as well as co-writing with established country performer Rhett Akins.
