TYLER CHILDERS ‘Country Squire’ – CD


Only 2 left in stock (can be backordered)


The winner of last year’s Emerging Artist of the Year Award at the Americana Music Association Honors & Awards, Tyler Childers has gone from beloved local artist within Kentucky to internationally lauded Appalachian prophet, telling the stories of love, loss and the left-behind in forgotten America.

The follow-up to his 2017 breakout success debut Purgatory, Country Squire was recorded in Nashville and produced by Sturgill Simpson and David Ferguson. In addition to Childers (vocals, acoustic guitar), the album features a number of world-renowned musicians including Stuart Duncan (fiddle, mandolin, banjo), Miles Miller (drums, background vocals) and Russ Pahl (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, pedal steel, Jaw harp, baritone).

Country Squire comprises other songs that Childers has honed on the road: “I’ve been writing a lot of road songs. Writing a lot of homesick songs,” he told Rolling Stone last year. “But once you start playing them out, it all ain’t no secret anymore. Everyone knows how you feel.” But what has made his songs resonate far outside of his home state’s jagged borders is his emotional connection and his grasp at translating subtle feelings into gripping, resonating tales that unroll sometimes like a diary and sometimes like vivid snapshots from a movie. Well-deserved stardom, that’s for sure.
