Tyler Childers is an Americana artist from the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky. He grew up in Lawrence County, Kentucky, and has played guitar since childhood. When he grew into adulthood, Tyler moved to Lexington where he joined a band called the Food Stamps. He then began his solo career in 2011 with the self-released album Bottles & Bibles. After five years, Miles Miller, a friend of Tyler and the drummer for Sturgill Simpson, introduced the two, leading Sturgill to produce Tyler’s second record Purgatory which came in 2017 via Thirty Tigers. Two years later, Tyler released his third album Country Squire which had the Grammy-nominated single “All Your’n” for Best Country Solo Performance. His fourth album Long Violent History came in 2020 and also earned a Grammy nomination. The album topped the folk chart and hit number 45 on the Billboard 200. In 2022, Tyler released Can I Take My Hounds to Heaven?, a triple album that featured eight original songs performed three ways: a live set with the Food Stamps, an overdubbed rendition, and a “Joyful Noise” version.
