Columbia Nashville’s Tyler Farr visited the MusicRow offices last week to give the staff a preview of his debut album. Lead single “Hello Goodbye” is already climbing the radio charts. He penned the autobiographical song with Kris Bergsnes and Skip Black about the end of a relationship. Farr also performed “Mine Tonight,” “Wish I Had a Boat,” and “Hope I Don’t Live to See That Day.” His album will be released in early 2013.
A native of Garden City, MO, Farr’s love of country music is rooted in time on the road with his stepfather, who played guitar for George Jones. Farr later attended Missouri State on a vocal performance scholarship, and was a regular act at famed honky-tonk Tootsie’s.
