Columbia Nashville newcomer Tyler Farr, heralded as a “New Artist To Watch” by both Country Weekly and Roughstock, is releasing his powerful new single, “Hello Goodbye.” The ballad of a man facing the emotional road at the end of a relationship, “Hello Goodbye” is a song that Tyler wrote following a real-life experience. “I caught an ex-girlfriend of mine cheating on me, and the next day we (Kris Bergsnes and Skip Black) wrote this song,” said Tyler. “Songwriting is like therapy, and thanks to Kris, Skip and a few drinks, I got some good counseling,” he laughed.
This Saturday Tyler will perform the song on the Grand Ole Opry. “One of the things I love about country music is the songs are built on real life experiences and events and I can’t think of a better place to play this song than at the Opry,” said Tyler.
A native of Garden City, MO, Tyler’s love of country music was set after going on the road with his step father, who played guitar for George Jones. After two years at Missouri State on a vocal performance scholarship, Tyler packed up his car and headed to Nashville. He got a job at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge playing the 10 pm – 2 am shift.
From there, Tyler took the party on the road playing clubs all across the southeast. He’s opened shows for artists including Miranda Lambert, Jerrod Niemann, and Lee Brice, and spent a year on the road with Colt Ford. “We’ve put a lot of miles on the van and we probably qualify for a U-Haul endorsement.”
The hundreds of shows and thousands of miles on the road have added up to a loyal fan base for Tyler. “What’s great now is I’m finally getting to the point where people are starting to catch on and know my songs and that is the best feeling in the entire world when you get someone. “When a fan comes up to me after a show to say they had a good time, then I’ve done my job.”
