Tyler Childers to Live Stream Sold-Out Red Rocks Amphitheatre Headline Debut

Acclaimed singer, songwriter and musician Tyler Childers will make his sold-out headline debut at Red Rocks Amphitheatre this Monday, September 30. In celebration of this milestone, the show-featuring special guest Robert Earl Keen-will stream live via Childers' YouTube Channel beginning at 9:30pm MT.

The Red Rocks performance is the first stop on Childers' sold-out "Country Squire Run" headline tour, which will continue throughout 2019 and includes upcoming shows at Los Angeles' The Wiltern, New York's Brooklyn Steel (two nights), Seattle's Paramount Theatre, Chicago's Argon Ballroom, Boston's House of Blues, Atlanta's Tabernacle (two nights) and Washington DC's The Anthem among several others. Additionally, Childers will perform three special shows at Pikeville, KY's Appalachian Wireless Arena on December 27, December 28 and December 31 and will make his headline debut at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium with four special sold-out shows next year: February 6, February 7, February 15 and February 16. See below for complete details.

These performances celebrate a landmark year for Childers, whose critically acclaimed new album Country Squire debuted at #1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart with over 32,000 equivalent units sold. Released on Hickman Holler Records/RCA Records, the album was produced by Sturgill Simpson and David Ferguson and recorded The Butcher Shoppe in Nashville.

In addition to Childers (vocals, acoustic guitar), the album features a number of world-renowned musicians including Stuart Duncan (fiddle, mandolin, banjo), Miles Miller (drums, background vocals) and Russ Pahl (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, pedal steel, Jaw harp, baritone).

Of the mission behind the album, Childers comments, "I hope that people in the area that I grew up in find something they can relate to. I hope that I'm doing my people justice and I hope that maybe someone from somewhere else can get a glimpse of the life of a Kentucky boy."

The release of Country Squire continues a series of breakout years for the Kentucky-native, whose critically acclaimed debut album, Purgatory, was released in 2017. The record-also produced by Sturgill Simpson and David Ferguson-landed on multiple "Best of 2017" lists including NPR Music, Rolling Stone, Noisey, The Bluegrass Situation, Wide Open Country and The Boot. Of the album, NPR Music raves "the intimacy he conjures is his gift, in this private moment made universal, and throughout his remarkable official debut," while Pitchfork declares "it's his voice, peppered with both the knowledge of the ages and the innocence of youth, that makes a song...so effective. Then it's the lyrics, a mix of plain-talk honesty and beguiling metaphors, that tip the scales to timeless." Since his debut, Childers was named "Emerging Artist of the Year" at the 2018 Americana Music Association Honors & Awards and has been featured on NPR Music's Tiny Desk Concert series and Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. Additionally, he's toured extensively across the world including over 130 sold-out headline shows as well as multiple dates supporting John Prine. He has also performed at several major festivals including Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Newport Folk Festival, Austin City Limits and Stagecoach.
