Tyler Childers is a relatively recent addition to the Americana scene. His music is best described as a funky mix of bluegrass, folk music and country. While Childers has been singing and producing albums since 2011, when he debuted his album Bottles and Bibles, he wasn't noticed until the release of his 2017 album Purgatory. In fact, it's ironic that the songs in Purgatory didn't catch the public's attention earlier as the album was a combination of two earlier EPs produced in 2013 in Lexington, Ky. The album featured the talents of other artists who collaborated with Childers such as Russ Paul, Stuart Duncan, Sturgill Simpson, an artist who has influenced Childers, and Miles Miller. Tyler Childers hasn't stopped there, and this year, fans are eagerly anticipating the release of a new album, Country Squire as well as his live concert performances.
Authentic Bluegrass Sound
It's no surprise that Tyler Childers' music has a distinctive bluegrass sound as he grew up in Kentucky, the Bluegrass State. Although neither one of his parents was active in the music industry, his mother was a nurse, and his father worked in the infamous Kentucky coal mines. Childers honed his musical talents in his local church choir. By the time he was a young teenager, he had taught himself how to play the guitar and was writing his own songs. Tyler Childers was named Emerging Artist of the Year by the American Music Honors & Awards in 2018.
