All the way to back porches, bug spray and cold cans of PBR…
We’re flashing back to a fresh faced Tyler Childers performing one of his all-time great tunes, the heart-melting “Shake The Frost.”
Recorded sometime around 2013, Tyler kicks the performance off with an impromptu line from the Donna Summer classic “She Works Hard For The Money,” before taking a swig of that PBR and beginning the song.
Joined by his pal Patrick Stanley, who sings harmonies and the second verse, it’s about as raw and wholesome as it gets. Just two kids making music for the love of the game.
Flash forward to today, Tyler is playing venues slightly larger than back porches, although I suppose you could consider Red Rocks one… giant… back… porch?
Ok, maybe that’s a bit of a reach, but the dude was selling out arenas with Sturgill Simpson before COVID hit, and I guarantee you he could do it again by himself if he really wanted to. Seems like he doesn’t these days, and with a baby on the way, who could blame him?
Throw in some Gold and Platinum records and nearly a decade later, you’re looking at one of the best things to happen to country music in my life time.
