Discovered Tyler’s music two weeks ago and I’m hooked. He perfectly captures the essence of Appalachian art. I hear a unique blend of Jennings & Scruggs in there. The writing & composition are like nothing I’ve ever heard. Sonically, it’s one of a kind. I listen to a lot of “All Your’n” & “Honky Tonk Flame”. Can’t wait to see him live when the pandemic is over.
We’ve been on the road for 6 weeks, traveling from Kalifornistan looking for a red state to move to. Making stops all along the way and heard Whitehouse road playing in a bar (The Pinnacle Club in Cumberland Gap)when we stopped for a beer. I just purchased Purgatory and Country Squire....reminds me of the 8 years I lived in Springfield Missouri, racing and going to bluegrass festivals through the south and east. Best of the BEST....Tyler can make music that makes all the crap go away. Guaranteed, if you like good down home, sittin on the porch tappin your foot, tippin cold ones with good friends and family music....Tyler Childers will satisfy your need.
I listen to Purgatory straight through atleast 2 times a week. I absolutely love the sound and the story-telling. Really hope this sound continues in future albums and that Tyler gets the recognition he deserves! Such a talent!
Like everything the music industry touches, music has become hot garbage. Just look at the front page of the iTunes store. Soulless Garbage masquerading as music. This is what talent sounds like. This is how art sounds. This is how music is supposed to sound. Pay attention.
Tyler Childers should be among the most famous artist. He is not a flash in the pan. This album is amazing, but his catalogue is so much richer than what you hear here. Find the music and always go to the show.
Guys great, he appeals to all country fans along with rock listeners like myself. You can hear the influences of traditional country, bluegrass, along with a rock influence. I’d consider him the closest thing to a modern day Bob Dylan
Been living in Chicago for 35 years but my parents, grandparents, thier grandparents, all from Eastern KY. Paintsville to be exact. Mr. Childres paints that picture of Estern KY, spending long summer days doing notheing but loving it. His sound is perfect, well produced, well written. I encourage people to listen to this, if for nothing else, than to realize what county/bluegrass is all about
In a time of pop-country and artists trying to rap about big trucks and deep v-necks, comes an artist that takes us back to how country and bluegrass is supposed to sound. Nose on the grindstone and whitehouse road are remarkable songs!
With the sounds of Hank Sr mixed with Kentucky country mixed with the Raw lyric genius, there may be a fighting chance for country music to be saved by Mr.Childers... this album is unbelievable so yourself a favor BUY IT!
Sturgill is by far the best thing that has come out of country/outlaw ever....That being said, you can use all his tricks & forma on another's music and it won't be quite the same. Not that it should be. But as in a rock star producing, it doesn't make the new music 'incredible'. Tyler has good stuff. His lyrics are awesome, great stories. However, his voice is just a bit too high on this cd & so its just okay. Think that future collaboration will bear good fruit. Looking forward to a live concert, but not rushing out to get this music...
Downloaded his album in July 2018 and it’s easily my most listened to and loved album ever 🙌🏼 it’s driven me to Colorado and back the long way around, all around my little small town, and even now while I type this. Can’t wait to see Tyler in Oklahoma come December.
I heard Tyler Childers on a music app. First song I heard was Feathered Indians. I was instantly in love. Came here, listened to song clips, purchased, and now I can’t get enough. My friends can’t get me to shut up. I listen to it all day every day. Then I bought Bottles and Bibles and put both on a playlist. Rinse and repeat all day. Absolutely some of THE most heart stirring music and singing I have heard in my entire life. I like all genres of music, but this kid here....you have brought me home to my music roots. God bless you Tyler Childers. Keep singing to my soul!!!!
You can tell how much time Tyler puts into every song. Some of the best songwriting I’ve ever heard. Have listened to this album start to end many times. Hopefully he keeps up the great work
I came late to the Tyler Childers party, but I'm extremely glad I stopped by for a drink. This is an exceptional recording. The songs are top notch, and the musicians and production simply excellent. I heard Sturgill Simpson was involved in the production. Congrats. If you are a John Prine and Steve Earl fan, check this out. You're going to want to crank it up a notch.
I first found Tyler Childers at a music festival in Lewisburg WV. Since then, I have fell in love with his music and have followed him hours away to hear his passionate and fun music live. I grew up in southern WV, making me a fellow appalachian, and maybe that's why I connect so well with his music....It is the best music I have heard in years. Please take a listen.
True Appalachian music written for the sake of the song and not pop country radio. The new Nashville Outlaws are Sturgill Simpson Tyler Childers and Jason Isbell Buy there music!!
