Hailing from Garden City, Missouri, Tyler Farr is a country music singer and songwriter who has written songs for artists like Colt Ford and Joe Nichols. He was first introduced to country music when he was sixteen years, spending the summer on the road with his stepfather, the lead guitarist for icon George Jones. Through this summer, he grew to love the genre and moved to Nashville to pursue a career in country music.
In Nashville, Farr worked as a bouncer at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge for just five months before he was able to convince the management to let him sing there. He would go on to play at Tootsie’s for four nights a week for the next few years.
As a man who spends a lot of time outdoors, Farr was able to make friends with award-winning songwriter Rhett Akins, a fellow outdoorsman. After hearing about some of Farr’s songs, Akins sought him out, and they released, in early 2012, Farr’s debut single, “Hot Mess,” which they wrote together. Billy Dukes of Tastes of Country, called Farr’s voice “unique, but not distracting” and gave the song four out of five stars. After moving from BNA Records to Columbia Records, Farr released his second single, “Hello Goodbye.”
Farr has also worked with artists like Colt Ford, for whom he wrote the song “Hey Y’all,” Jerrod Niemann and Lee Brice.
