BNA Records newcomer Tyler Farr is set for his Grand Ole Opry debut Saturday night (4/28), where he will perform debut single, “Hot Mess.” Check out the track here.
“One of the most influential experiences in my life was the first time I went to the Opry,” explains Farr. “What made it so special was that I was backstage and my stepfather [was playing lead guitar onstage] next to George Jones. As he sang ‘He Stopped Loving Her Today,’ my arms filled with goosebumps. It was then that I knew The Grand Ole Opry was the heart and soul of country music.”
Farr sang his way through high school and went to college at Missouri State on a vocal performance scholarship. After two years in college, he packed up his car and headed to Nashville where he landed a gig at Tootsie’s playing the 10 pm – 2 am shift.
Since then he’s opened for Miranda Lambert, Jerrod Niemann, and spent a year on the road with Colt Ford.
