Tyler Childers Information
|Born||June 21, 1991|
Lawrence County, Kentucky
Tyler Childers was born and raised in Lawrence County, Kentucky.  His father worked in the coal industry and his mother is a nurse.  He learned singing in church where he sang in the church choir.  He started to play guitar and write songs when he was around 13.  He moved from Lawrence County to Paintsville, Kentucky, where he attended Paintsville High School and graduated in 2009.  Fellow country musicians Chris Stapleton and Loretta Lynn (Van Lear, KY) also hail from Paintsville. He studied for a semester at Western Kentucky University, and enrolled at Bluegrass Community and Technical College for a few semesters.  He dropped out of college and did odd jobs for some time while pursuing a music career. 
Childers began performing in Lexington, Kentucky and Huntington, West Virginia.  In 2011, when he was 19, Childers released his first album, Bottles And Bibles. He has also released two EPs recorded in 2013 at Red Barn Radio, a radio show from Lexington.  The two EPs were later released as one after the success of his album Purgatory, and reached No. 5 on Heatseekers Albums. 
He had his first success with Purgatory, an album released on August 4, 2017.  The album was produced by Sturgill Simpson and David Ferguson and recorded at The Butcher Shoppe in Nashville.  Simpson also played guitar and sang backing vocals on the album, with Miles Miller on drums, Stuart Duncan on fiddle and Russ Paul on other instruments.  It debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Heatseekers Albums chart, No. 17 on the Country albums chart and No. 4 on the Americana/Folk albums chart. 
A second album to be released in August 2, 2019 under the Hickman Holler label, Country Squire, was announced in May 2019. This album was again produced by Simpson and Ferguson.  The video of the lead single from the album "House Fire" was also released on May 16, 2019.
