AccuRadio Song Of The Day-Tyler Farr

Artist:Tyler Farr
Song:Redneck Crazy
Album:Redneck Crazy

Country singer songwriter Tyler Farr struck Platinum with his debut CD and single Redneck Crazy. He was born Aug. 1, 1984 in Garden City, MO. His stepfather played lead guitar with George Jones. And after spending a summer on tour as a teen, he decided to move to Nashville and pursue a career in music. Farr was a bouncer at Tootsie's Orchid Lounge. They let him sing and he played the club four nights a week in addition to handling security. Farr's big break came when he met singer songwriter Rhett Akins. Both are avid outdoorsmen. Akins decided to work with Farr and this led to a songwriting contract with Sony ATV/ Monument Publishing and then a record deal with Sony's BNA label. After writing songs for Colt Ford and Joe Nichols, Farr released an EP in 2010. He moved to Columbia when Sony closed BNA. Farr finally released his full length debut CD Redneck Crazy Sept. 2013. The album was produced by Sony Nashville A & R VP Jim Catino and recording engineer turned producer Julian King. The single Redneck Crazy reached #2 on the Country Singles chart. It was hailed as the single of the summer of 2013. Though Farr wrote several songs on the album including a couple with Akins, Redneck Crazy was written by veteran songwriters Josh Kear, Mark Irwin and Chris Tompkins. Kear co-wrote the Lady Antebellum hit Need You Now and Kear and Tompkins have written several songs for Carrie Underwood including Before He Cheats. Redneck Crazy is available as a budget CD. Tyler Farr is currently on tour. He's off to a good start in his career and we'll see how he does in the future. Here's the video for Redneck Crazy by Tyler Farr.
