SINGLE REVIEW: Tyler Farr “A Guy Walks Into A Bar”

After scoring hit songs from his debut album (“Redneck Crazy“, “Whiskey In My Water“), Tyler Farr is set to release “A Guy Walks Into A Bar“, the first single (written by Melissa Peirce, Jonathan Singleton, Brad Tursi) from his upcoming sophomore album.

His latest single compares to “Hello Goodbye“, a song previously released by the Missouri native.

“I told myself a thousand times it wouldn’t end like this But here I am standing at the door with no more walls to hit I didn’t notice it was over til it was too late All the tears are cried and it’s time to walk away”.

Worse, this ending plays out in front of an audience and leaves him the butt of a bad cliché.

“The joke’s on me and it ain’t funny

Everybody but me could see the punch line coming a mile away

I’ve heard it so many times I can tell it to the T

Believe me I could sell it all day It goes

A guy walks into a bar, orders a drink

Sees a girl that catches his eye

I’d laugh too if my heart would let me

Keeping it light will probably help to get me over you

I’m walking, talking, drinking proof

A cliché in a corner booth Ain’t nothing new”

Tyler is currently on the road with Jason Aldean and will join Brantley Gilbert on tour this fall. He co-wrote Colt Ford’s “Hey Y’all” and Joe Nichols “She’s Just Like That.

The add date for his newest, a mid-tempo tune from Columbia Nashville, is August 18.

I’ve been privileged to write album reviews for Got Country Online since 2012. John Berry,John Michael Montgomery, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Alan Jackson their music caught my ear, their lyrics caught my heart. Country music is my go-to, whether my day is great or not.
