Tyler Childers (VS)
A new generation of artists breathes life into America’s rural music tradition. The singer-songwriter Tyler Childers, from bluegrass state Kentucky, is one of the standard-bearers of this country revival. With his whisky-weathered voice and his vivid lyrics, he offers a fresh mix of country, bluegrass, and folk. His breakthrough album Purgatory was produced by Sturgill Simson, who is also producing his upcoming album Country Squire. There are high expectations of this Kentucky boy!
