Tyler Childers just released his major label debut Country Squire on Friday, August 2nd, and if you can’t get enough of it, you’ll have multiple opportunities see him perform live in the coming days via the magic of mass media. Childers will make his broadcast television debut on Tuesday, August 6th when he appears on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Though Childers has been a fast rising country star, this is his first big TV appearance, and hopefully one of many to come.
And if one or two songs on a late night TV show isn’t enough to wet your whistle, you’ll be able to stream his official Country Squire album release show at Webster Hall in New York on Monday night, August 5th. The live stream will start at 7:45 p.m. Central, 8:45 p.m. Eastern, and will include the entire performance. It will be streamed at tylerchildersmusic.com .
The 28-year-old from Lawrence County, Kentucky started playing music when he was 13, and learned how to sing in the church choir. After graduating from Paintsville High School, Childers attended a few semesters at a community college while pursuing a music career, releasing his first record at 19 called Bottles and Bibles. Appearing throughout Kentucky and West Virginia, Childers became a regional phenomenon, and was given a major boost when the drummer for Sturgill Simpson, Miles Miller, introduced the two. Soon Childers was signed to Thirty Tigers, and became one of the fastest-rising artists in country music.
It was announced in May that Tyler Childers had signed to Sony Music division RCA Records in a partnership with his own imprint, Hickman Holler Records, to release Country Squire. Don’t be surprised if the album debuts at or near the top of the country albums charts this upcoming week.
