How Has “Follow You To Virgie” Never Made A Tyler Childers Studio Album?

Does anyone have better unreleased songs than Tyler Childers?

We’ve got “Woodward Creek,” “Her and The Banks,” “Onedia,” “Take My Hounds To Heaven,” and that’s just a few of them…

But the best one is so popular, it’s shocking it hasn’t been on an official release…

“Follow You To Virgie” is a song honoring his friend Cody’s late grandmother, who used to let him and a bunch of their buddies go to her house, play their music, and just hang out.

The song was part of his Live On Red Barn Radio performances from back in 2013 and 2014, however, the recording were later re-released as one complete EP, Live On Red Barn Radio I & II, in 2018.

He performed a number of songs from his albums, a cover of John R Miller’s “Coming Down,” and the unreleased gem, “Follow You To Virgie.”

He prefaced the song by saying he had never gotten through a full performance without breaking down until his last time playing at Red Barn Radio, which shows how much she meant to him, and might explain why he’s never done the song in studio, it just wouldn’t feel right…

Either way, Childers once again proves he’s one of the best songwriters and artists on the planet and I think I speak for everyone when I say we can’t wait for some new music.

He also recorded it for his stellar OurVinyl Sessions.
