After celebrating a breakthrough year including the launch of his debut album, sold-out tour dates with Florida Georgia Line and Jason Aldean, and his selection as one of the CRS 2014 New Faces of Country Music, Columbia Nashville singer/songwriter Tyler Farr kicks off 2014 with a Ram Country on Yahoo! performance of AWOLNATION’s “Sail” and as the first country artist ever selected for VEVO’s “Will Travel For Music”.
In “Will Travel for Music,” now live HERE, Tyler takes Heather Byrd, star of A&E’s “Crazy Hearts: Nashville”, on a tour of his favorite Nashville spots including downtown’s classic honky-tonks, the historic Ryman Auditorium, Mt. Richmore, home of Big & Rich hitmaker John Rich, as well as The Building, where much of A&E’s “Crazy Hearts: Nashville,” launching January 15th, is filmed. In Ram Country on Yahoo!, live now HERE, Tyler put’s his country spin on one of the year’s biggest songs, AWOLNATION’s “Sail,” and performs his latest hit single, “Whiskey in My Water,” off his album REDNECK CRAZY.
2013 ended on a high note for the Missouri native, with an ACA nomination for his hit single “Redneck Crazy” and the artist’s first #1 party for the platinum-certified title-track, which was named “one of the signature country songs of the summer” by The New York Times and generated 9 million VEVO views for the song’s video.
Tyler’s debut effort, REDNECK CRAZY, debuted at #2 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and #5 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart– marking the year’s highest entry by a debut male country artist on the all-genre Billboard 200 album sales chart and tying for highest ranking chart position on the Billboard Country chart by a new male artist in 2013. After landing an opening slot on Florida Georgia Line’s sold-out headlining tour following his run with Lee Brice and Colt Ford, he capped off the year with his selection as one of the CRS 2014 New Faces Country Music and will be out on tour with Jason Aldean starting January 16th, as well as into next year’s Aldean tour, as announced this morning on Good Morning America.
