If you haven’t heard of Tyler Childers yet, you need to get on that ASAP. Dubbed by Rolling Stone as “Sturgill Simpson’s protege,” (read full article here) he’s clearly grabbed the attention of country music’s elite. His upcoming album, titled Purgatory, will be even be produced by Simpson, along with David Ferguson, who once worked with the great Johnny Cash.
Whatever that x-factor is, the Kentucky native clearly has it and if Sturgill thinks so too, that’s good enough for me.
If that isn’t enough to convince you, check out this incredible acoustic performance of “Follow You To Virgie.”
