As we suspected earlier this week, Tyler teamed up with The Travelin’ McCourys to cut a brand new bluegrass version of “House Fire,” the lead single from his fantastic Country Squire record.
Earlier this week, Tyler shared a photo in the studio with Heaven McCoury, the grandson of bluegrass legend Del McCoury, and son of Robbie McCoury.
But wait, there’s more.
Tyler also teamed up with some fellow Eastern Kentucky natives, Ricky Skaggs and Larry Cordle, for a new version of “Highway 40 Blues.” Written by Cordle, “Highway 40 Blues” was recorded and released by Skaggs in 1982 for his Highways & Heartaches record. It went on to become his 5th number one single in 1983.
Both songs are available exclusively on Spotify so if there was ever a time to get it, now would be the time.
Whiskey Riff is the most entertaining country site…ever.
