About Tyler Farr:

Columbia Nashville’s Tyler Farr released his highly anticipated sophomore album, Suffer In Peace, in April 2015 making its debut in the top 5 on the BILLBOARD Top 200 Albums and BILLBOARD Country Albums Charts. Previously with the release of his debut album Redneck Crazy, which released in 2013, Farr landed at No. 2 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and #5 on the Billboard Top 200 making Farr the only solo male country artist in the last 10 years to have his first two studio albums debut in the top-5 on the Billboard 200 Chart. Tyler’s first single off the newly released Suffer In Peace album, “A Guy Walks into a Bar,” proved to be Farr's third No. 1 hit and is now RIAACertified GOLD. Farr’s #1, platinum-selling title-track “Redneck Crazy” projected Farr forward to celebrate back-to-back #1 singles, including his first #1 as a songwriter, with his Gold-certified hit “Whiskey in my Water.” Farr’s most recent single at radio, “Better In Boots,” was described by the New York Times as a “muscular love song.” The Missouri native’s dry wit and energetic live show has earned him industry recognition as a 2014 CRS New Faces of Country Radio and 2014 Music Row “Breakthrough Artist of the Year” nominee, as well as rave reviews for his coveted opening slots touring with Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, Brantley Gilbert, Lee Brice and Brad Paisley.
