Tyler Childers Adds To 2019 Tour Dates & Festival Appearances

You get the sense that Tyler Chiders is sitting right on the cusp. When you mention his name, there is an energy behind it that charges the air, like you know he’s someone ready to break out in the biggest way at any moment. When he releases a new record, it could be a monumental event, and have reverberations throughout country music, and for years to come.

One thing feeding all of this energy and anticipation is watching how Tyler’s tour dates are unfolding, with new dates having to be added to meet demand, shows selling out left and right, and his inclusion on one festival bill after another as promoters look to feature the next best thing before he blows up so big, they can’t even book him. Festival appearances may be your only opportunity to see him in some instances as club and theater shows are often selling out immediately.

Tyler Childers has just announced some new tour dates to go along with an already-packed itinerary that has the Kentucky songwriter in New Zealand at the moment, and will take him through the deep South in May, and to many main stage performances at festivals this summer. New dates are highlighted in bold, with the run of shows in May releasing tickets on Friday, 2/22 at 10am local time.
