Tyler Childers Confirms Additional Headline Dates

Tyler Childers will continue his extensive headline tour this summer with stops at Charlotte's Neighborhood Theatre, Lexington's Manchester Music Hall, Austin's Antone's, Houston's White Oak Music Hall and Louisville's Headliners Music Hall among several others. Tickets for the newly announced shows go on-sale this Friday, March 9 at 10:00am local time. Childers will also perform a series of shows this spring as part of the "Stagecoach Spotlight Tour" in addition to multiple shows with John Prine and two sold-out shows with Margo Price at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium. See below for complete details.

These performances celebrate a breakout year for Childers, which included a series of sold-out shows across the country and the release of his critically acclaimed debut album, Purgatory. The record-produced by Sturgill Simpson and David Ferguson-landed on multiple "Best of 2017" lists including Rolling Stone,Vice's Noisey, Wide Open Country and NPR Music, who praised, "The intimacy he conjures is his gift, in this private moment made universal, and throughout his remarkable official debut."

In addition to Childers (vocals, acoustic guitar), the album features a variety of world-renowned musicians including Simpson (acoustic guitar, background vocals), Stuart Duncan (fiddle), Miles Miller (drums, background vocals) and Russ Pahl (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, pedal steel, Jew's harp) among others.

Of the album, the Lawrence Country, KY native comments, "I am extremely grateful for Miles Miller introducing me to Sturgill Simpson, and also for Sturgill and David Ferguson taking the time to work with me. I think we both wanted to make an album for east KY, and I reckon that's what we did. It's not about rock, or grass, or country...it's just hollerin' in the mountains and stirring s up! The band Sturgill and David put together was an all-star cast, and an honor to work with and learn from. I hope to do it again, but once is more than most are blessed with. For that I am thankful."
