Obviously, Tyler Childers is one of the best things to happen to country music in decades, but did you know that his wife Senora May is also a singer? And a pretty damn good one.
A while back we shared a video of them singing Willie Nelson’s “Sad Songs and Waltzes,” and if you’ve never seen it, it’s as awesome as you might expect. Tyler closes out the duet with a solo performance of his unreleased “The Wonder & The Why,” which is honestly one of my all-time favorite Childers tunes.
Anyways, after scouring the interwebs for more duets Tyler and Lady May, I found that there just isn’t much of it out there. Save for a few poor quality cellphone recordings from back in the day. So I’ll ask it again… how do we get them to record a song together?
Here’s a few that I could find:
“There Ain’t No Ash Will Burn,” written by Walt Aldridge and was first released by Ranch Romance in 1989.
Here’s their duet of Willie Nelson’s “Sad Songs & Waltzes.”
And the old hymn, “The Old Country Church,” which was recorded by Hank Williams.
And finally, for those of you just now finding out that Tyler’s wife Senora May is a singer, here’s “Flowers Wilt.”
Whiskey Riff is the most entertaining country site…ever.
