It’s been a hot minute since we’ve gotten some new music from Tyler Childers.
Aside from his 2020 Long Violent History album, which was basically an instrumental fiddle album besides the last song about police brutality and racial injustice in America, it’s been since his 2019 Country Squire album that we’ve gotten a full-song album.
I was really beginning to stress when he performed during the Healing Appalachia virtual benefit concert, after he said he’d really been enjoying time off the road. And although he’s played a few unreleased songs at some shows here and there, the thought did indeed cross my mind a few times:
“Will we ever see Tyler Childers release new music again?”
Now I’m not the guy to throw out the red alert and sound the horns, but the man just posted to his Instagram again for the first time since he unveiled the Long Violent History album two years ago.
It’s a video of ol’ Cletus (that’s what we’re gonna call him for now) from the “All Your’n” music video, who was tripping out on some shrooms the whole time.
In the video, Cletus is coming down from his high in the woods, and is blinded by the sunlight, and the video comes to an abrupt end.
So I’ll let you put the two and two together…
His first Instagram post in nearly two years… new music on the way?
I guess time will tell, but things are finally looking up for all of us Childers fans out there.
