Tyler Lynn Farr (born February 5, 1984) is an American country music singer. He is signed to Columbia Records, and has released five singles.

Biography[edit]

Tyler Farr grew up in Garden City, Missouri. Tyler attended Missouri State University, studying voice.

Farr co-wrote the songs "Hey Y'all" for Colt Ford[1] and "She's Just Like That" for Joe Nichols.[2] In early 2012, Farr released his debut single, "Hot Mess",[3] which he co-wrote with Rhett Akins. Billy Dukes of Taste of Country gave the song four stars out of five, calling Farr's voice "unique, but not distracting."[4] Following the merger of his original label, BNA Records, Farr moved to Columbia Nashville[5] to release his second single, "Hello Goodbye". His third single, "Redneck Crazy", became his first Top 10 hit in 2013. After it came the top 3 hit "Whiskey in My Water".

Farr led off his second album in mid-2014 with "A Guy Walks Into a Bar".

Tyler Farr is also a classically trained opera singer and took voice lessons during his teenage years, singing tenor in Missouri's All-State Choir during his senior year of high school. He claims he discovered, and fell in love with, country music after his mother married George Jones' touring guitarist.[6]
