Mustached Man Monday in Movember

Tyler Farr

For the final Monday in Movember, we decided to spotlight a man who reached a milestone in his career most recently…His first ever platinum single! Tyler Farr is a singer/songwriter from a small town in Missouri. Tyler learned about country music from his stepfather, who played guitar for the legendary George Jones.

Once Tyler realized his love for country music, he moved to Nashville to pursue his dream of becoming a musician. Tyler began working at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, a popular bar in Music City. After working at Tootsie’s for several months, Tyler convinced the management to allow him to perform. Tyler started performing four nights a week, along with maintaining his job as a bouncer.

Tyler also found himself becoming friends with Rhett Akins, who saw Tyler’s talent and wanted to work with him. Tyler ultimately worked with some of the best writers in Nashville and was signed to BNA Records. Tyler has written for Colt Ford and opened for Jerrod Niemann and Lee Brice before releasing his debut album, Redneck Crazy. The title track of Redneck Crazy recently was awarded with RIAA Platinum Certification.

Congratulations, Tyler, on your recent successes! Keep this artist’s name in your minds, ladies and gentlemen. Tyler is certainly going to be a huge part of country music moving forward!

Nashville’s famous Tootsies Orchid Lounge has announced additional performers for its 51st birthday bash celebration. While Kid Rock will headline the November 23rd birthday before his sold-out appearance at the Ryman Auditorium, joining the party on the outdoor stage are the McClymonts, The Roys and the Kentucky Headhunters. The three groups will play the outdoor stage starting at noon CST on the outdoor stage on Broadway.

“Every time I end up at Tootsies its a good night, and I don’t expect this night to be any different. It’s cool to be celebrating their birthday party with them; I like parties and seem to excel in that type of atmosphere,” said Kid Rock.

The party will continue after his show at the Ryman Auditorium that same night. More bands will be announced as the date comes closer.

The first birthday party celebration was held last year in the 50th year of the opening of the legendary venue. The reception went over so well that it’s turned into an annual event on Broadway.
