If you wanted to see Tyler Childers perform at the picturesque Red Rocks Amiptheater in Morrison, CO just outside of Denver this Monday, September 30th, well tough titty, because the show sold out months ago. Saving Country Music has been warning you folks for years now to see Tyler Childers in smaller venues when you can. Now he’s all grown up, signed to a major label, cresting the country music albums charts at #1 with his latest record Country Squire, and selling out 9,500+ capacity venues like a boss. This Kentucky kid can’t be stopped.
But even if you couldn’t get a ticket or convince your boss to give you time off to make it to the show, you’re in luck. Thanks to nugs.net, the entire show will be streamed online via the official Tyler Childers YouTube page for free. The show is set to start at 9:30 PM Mountain, which is 10:30 Central, 11:30 Eastern, and 8:30 Pacific. “Tyler is the real deal,” says Nugs Founder and CEO, Brad Serling. “The core nugs.net audience of die-hard live music fans will be jumping on the bandwagon the minute they tune in to the Red Rocks stream.”
Also performing on the night is Town Mountain, who Tyler Childers collaborated with on their last album, and Robert Earl Keen, who Childers has been touring with off and on throughout 2019. Unfortunately, it appears those two sets won’t be broadcast as part of the live event.
The 28-year-old from Lawrence County, Kentucky started playing music when he was 13, and learned how to sing in the church choir. He released his first record at 19 called Bottles and Bibles, and appearing throughout Kentucky and West Virginia, Childers became a regional phenomenon. He 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.
