Tyler Childers Shares Motivational Photo Performing In A Cafe Full Of Patrons Not Paying Attention Years Ago

Keep grinding. Keep hustling. Keep writing songs. Tour your ass off.

These are all things Tyler Childers keeps doing, as we were reminded of the humble beginnings in a throwback social media post. According to photographer, @the_handlebartender, he took the following photo of Childers on 8/17/14.

Tyler is highlighted in the cafe, playing for patrons that aren’t paying a ton of attention (I’m sure they all do now).

Now, Childers and Sturgill are about to play for sold-out arenas and stadiums. A humble reminder to keep going, folks.
