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

Biography[edit]

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

Farr co-wrote the songs "Hey Y'all" for Cole Swindell[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". All four singles were included on his debut album, Redneck Crazy, released on September 30, 2013.

Farr led off his second album in mid-2014 with "A Guy Walks Into a Bar". The album, Suffer in Peace, was released on April 28, 2015, and in May 2015, "A Guy Walks Into a Bar" became Farr's first Number One country hit. The album's second single, "Withdrawals" released to country radio on June 15, 2015. It had only reached number 52 on the Country Airplay chart before it was pulled from radio and "Better in Boots" was issued as a third single on August 17, 2015. The decision to change the single was made in order to give Farr an up-tempo, "female friendly" song that he could sing live, according to Steve Hodges of Sony Nashville.[6]

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.[7]

Farr married long time girlfriend, Hannah Freeman on October 10, 2016.[8]
