Tyler Childers to Stream Sold Out Red Rocks Show
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.

I’ll be tuning in. I’m sure he knows a lot of people who want to see him can’t afford it or can’t make it this time around. Much appreciated.

Will be interesting to see if Sturgill falls back in line when his ticket sales start falling after that hot pile of shit he released yesterday. His protégée is already doubling his audiences. Sturgill can talk all the big game he wants about being different but money talks.
Good for Tyler.

On the Sturgill album and in the words of Hank 3 “Not everybody likes us
But we we drive some folks wild”

If been around this site you know I’ve been one of his biggest supporters since the SV pickathon show years and years ago

I see him selling way more tickets than before. That album rocks! You may not like it but a lot of people love it as I do. His shows last year were way more fun and high energy compared to before when he had the horns and another guitar player. I saw Tyler earlier this year in a theater and although I’m a fan, it all started sounding the same after a while and never really reached a crescendo like most concerts do. He is nowhere, at least yet, in the same league as Sturgill as a live performer as I witnessed at last year’s New Orleans Jazz Fest where he blew everyone away. But I do not even see the comparison as they sound totally different to me. That being said I look forward to watching this show with the sound all of the way up!

Seen Sturgill multiple times with less than 200 people in the room; seen up to 5,000. One of the best live performers I’ve ever seen. Said that for years. Doesn’t change my opinion that Tyler is going to sell more tickets than him next year. Doesn’t “mean” anything. Just be interesting to watch.

You’re a fool lol Sturgill ain’t worried about you. His sold out tour proves that.
September 28, 2019 @ 5:45 pm
I hope he’s not worried about me.
Your a fool…. lol. No your a fool, fool. What?

Sound and Fury is the musical equivalent of a prolonged car accident. Wall of sound bullshit.

Try turning down your hearing aid and giving get it another spin

HoT PiLe Of GaRbAgE. Good lord what a terrible hot take. Pretty awful to not recognize an instant classic. Oh and you mean the tickets that all sold out almost instantly with 100% of the proceeds being donated? Educate yourself.
September 29, 2019 @ 6:19 pm
Struck a nerve obviously. Love the special forces donation. Not sure I’d say the upcoming venues tell us too much.
September 28, 2019 @ 9:20 am
I will definitely tune into this. Still confused about Mr. Childers but keeping an open mind.
September 28, 2019 @ 10:39 am
I’m so excited, Childers will be my first Red Rocks show, I can’t imagine how insane it’s going to be

Lucky enough to have caught him twice at smaller shows. One of the times he was almost too drunk to play and stopped his set, got down into the crowd, and confronted someone in the crowd.

Country Squire is so good. I haven’t heard emotion in a fiddle like “Creeker” since “Seminole Wind.”

Saw Tyler last night show kicked ass….he is awesome live ….can’t wait to see him again
September 29, 2019 @ 12:03 pm
He has worked his ass off to get where he is now , it’s gonna be a helluva show, can’t wait!
September 29, 2019 @ 6:18 pm
Husband and I just drove over 1,100 miles to see Childers and Robert Earl Monday night. Can’t wait. Red Rocks rocks.

Don’t know if any of you bastards are watching, but it’s pretty great stuff. Multiple cameras. Great audio. Vocals are a little loud ’cause it sounds like a board feed, but still good.
September 30, 2019 @ 9:17 pm
This has way exceeded my expectations. I was just hoping for something better than a shitty cell phone video.

Red Rocks is a place where the venue is essentially another instrument. Special night there, I can tell. Tyler and the band are killing it.

Stayed awake until 1:15 eastern and really enjoyed the live stream. Now, don’t get me wrong, I dig the whole band “hillbilly jam” vibe, but those 3 acoustic songs at the end were what I came for. Late night, my butt is dragging a bit today.

Watching a replay of the stream. Amazing.
However, I have one small quibble. Could someone buy Tyler another guitar so a tech guy can tune it while he is playing and then trade it out? For some reason I found the time he spent tuning his guitar to be terribly annoying. I guess I like to see someone committed to what they are doing. Between songs Tyler seemed terribly preoccupied with tuning at the expense of why he was there.
But beyond that small thing, this is amazing. Makes it even harder to take not having seen him yet.

After seeing Tyler & the boys perform live numerous times & watching every video performance on You Tube, I would be shocked if he ever hands off his guitar for anyone to tune! If you go back & watch his earlier performances of “All Your’n”, ( He doesn’t play during this song), notice he doesn’t know what to do with his hands when he’s not holding his guitar! It was the quite evident when he performed on the late night shows & looked really awkward trying to figure it out. If he wasn’t trying to tune it, he would sometimes put one hand on the strap & fidget. At the Red Rocks show he wore a jean jacket & would put his hands in the pockets. My personal opinion, (for what it’s worth) is he’s a little shy & nervous but mainly, HE’S REAL which is why he’s loved by his fans or shall I say SUPER FANS because most of are! Why he doesn’t hold on to the microphone…you’ll have to ask him???

What has happened to the video? I was at the show, and loved the fuck out of every minute. On the drive back Kansas City, I listened to the video in the car but still have not had time to watch it.
Now that I’m home, it is gone! Will it reappear or am I SOL?
October 1, 2019 @ 6:16 pm
It was up this morning but has since been pulled. Perhaps they will release it in the future.
October 1, 2019 @ 6:38 pm
Yeah, I played the YouTube video on my phone during my drive home. We blue-toothed the audio to my truck speakers. It sounded like listening to an album… phenomenal!
I am just hoping the video re-emerges, so I can watch it. He is very animated when he sings and I was hoping to see how the lighting turned out on video.
Thanks for the reply

Same thing happened with his album release livestream. My guess is that they are planning on some sort of future release, given how much money they spent on the professional production of the videos.
