Tyler Childers don’t miss.
And it shows, because his new triple album, Can I Take My Hounds To Heaven?, debuted at #8 on Billboard’s Top 200 All-Genre Albums chart.
Quite impressive for an independent artist like Tyler, especially considering there was virtually no press or much marketing in the lead up to release day, and, for all intents and purposes, the project only featured eight songs with three separate versions of each (the Hallelujah version, the Jubilee version, and the Joyful Noise version).
You absolutely love to see the Kentucky native up there with some of the most popular artists in all of music, not just country, who are all on massive record labels and put millions into getting those albums to debut in the Top 10 on that chart.
He’s up there, purely and simply, because he’s an unreal talent with dedicated fans and incredible music that clearly resonates with a helluva lot of people.
