After listening to his raw lyrics about the honest struggles of life, country music fans are flocking to the rising artist.
Tyler Farr isnâ€™t afraid to be true when it comes to the human condition. His life experiences and hardships are poured into his newest album, Suffer in Peace. Sins and vices arenâ€™t put to shame but rather recognized and turned into survivor ballads through his raw voice and country tune.
The journey to the national stage wasnâ€™t easy for Farr. Although he has worked his way up from playing for tips, to touring with renowned acts such as Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan, and Jason Aldean, and to solo shows, the trials along the way proved to be impactful, as they still haunt his songs.
His family first introduced him to music. While raking hay on a cattle farm behind his father, he was introduced to old timers Ronnie Milsap, Conway Twitty, Vince Gill, and Sammy Kershaw. His mom was an impassioned singer and later married touring guitarist George Jones. Their bond founded in music showed Farr the way to the stage and got him exposed to the industry.
At the age of 21, he joined the line of aspiring artists and headed to Nashville where he quickly learned the true trials of trying to make it big. Having a laundry-list of jobs in order to get the money to needed to start, Farr spent time at a halfway house for children. It was there he experienced heartbreaking moments of finding suicide notes and broken razors, experiences that would shape his future music career.
Country-rapper Cole Folt opened the door for him to the national spotlight when he asked Farr to open for him. With time and experience, he finally found success of his own.
In 2013, his album Redneck Crazy reached number two on the Billboard Country charts and was a Top Five Billboard Top 200 album. His career took off from there and since then he has released his latest album, Suffer in Peace. His most noteworthy songs off the album include â€œC.O.U.N.T.R.Y.,â€ â€œA Guy Walks Into a Bar,â€ and â€œI Donâ€™t Even Want This Beer.â€ His album plays on the tough experiences that life brings, but also the great moments that make life worth living.
Farr will be performing around the United States and Canada from now until October to promote his new album.
