Tyler Childers Announces First Major Tour in 3 Years

Not since Tyler Childers joined up with Sturgill Simpson for an arena tour that was summarily canceled due to the pandemic have we seen a slew of tour dates from the Kentucky songwriter. In fact, it’s been curiously quiet on that front while Tyler Childers remains one of the most popular country artists from the independent realm. For the last two years, it’s only been select appearances at festivals and fundraisers. But that all is about to change after Tyler Childers announced the “Send In The Hounds Tour” on Thursday (11-10).

Consisting of 30 total dates, including a couple in the UK and some previously-announced festival appearances, it gives Tyler Childers fans the greatest set opportunities to see him in the last three years. Though there are some big venues and amphitheaters on this tour, these are not arenas, and some are relatively intimate. So you can be assured that most all of these dates will sell out almost immediately.

A diverse group of openers on the tour include Sturgill Simpson drummer and Town Mountain member Miles Miller, Charley Crockett, John R. Miller, Wayne Graham, Elle King, Margo Price, Marcus King, and S.G. Goodman, whose song “Space and Time” is a Tyler Childers favorite.

Tyler’s album Purgatory remains a wildly popular title in country music, perennially stationed in the Top 20, despite being over six years old now. His latest album Can I Take My Hounds to Heaven has already dropped to #38 this week despite being a triple album release, but demand for Tyler Childers live is likely to remain high, and folks should be on top of the pre-sale that starts on November 16th, and the general sale that starts November 18th at 9:00 am local time.
