Wednesday, August 6 will feature -Tyler Farr at 8 p.m. according to www.tylerfarr.com/biography, “Tyler’s unique background, from avid small-town outdoorsman to classically trained vocalist, makes him one of the most compelling young singers in contemporary country. His life experiences and outlook have let him enjoy the ride.
‘I’ve learned not to worry too much or to take life so seriously,’ he says. ‘Just have fun because you never know. I was with Luke Bryan and Lee Brice on the bus, and I’m always like, ‘C’mon boys, let’s get a picture. I don’t know how long I’m going to be doin’ this.’” It’s a perspective that modestly allows Tyler to appreciate every step of his career, as he says, “I do not take one day I get to do this for granted.’ The combination makes him one of the most accessible artists out there.”
