Tyler Farr Sticks To His Country Roots
If you think there are no modern-day country hitmakers staying true to the genre then think again. Tyler Farr says he has made a conscious effort to hold fast to the country roots on which he was raised.
“Some of the songs that are gonna be on this new album, and some of the songs that are on my current album, Redneck Crazy, are more country than others. I have one that’s stone-cold country. And I’ve said this a million times and I’ll say it again is that I try to keep the roots of country music there because I don’t want to lose them. I don’t want country music radio to lose ‘em ’cause if you lose it, you lose the genre. And no, not every song on my album . . . you’re not gonna be sittin’ in a rockin’ chair just tappin’ your foot. ‘A Guy Walks into a Bar’ has some grit to it and some power, but you can still put out a country song that has, you know, hard electric guitars, and it can still be country. And this, I think, is a prime example of that. At least, that’s what we try to do, and that’s what we try to do with the entire album.”
Tyler’s new album, Suffer in Peace, is due out on April 28th.
Tyler was recently featured as an answer on the classic game show, Jeopardy. Last week, Tyler tweeted: “Yes! My life is made! #jeopardy”
The show featured the answer: “In a country No. 1, Tyler Farr tells his cheating girl, ‘You broke the wrong heart baby and drove me’ this kind of crazy.”
