Childers released his debut album, "Purgatory," produced by Sturgill Simpson and David Ferguson, to much acclaim last year.
Of the album, the Lawrence Country, Ky. native said, "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 shit 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."
Childers is nominated for "Emerging Artist of the Year" at the 2018 Americana Music Association Honors & Awards and also made his Grand Ole Opry debut earlier this spring.

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Stapleton shows his traditional roots
Chris Stapleton's All-American Road show feels like a singular mission to rid the genre of the bro country scourge that has plagued it for years. He came out with a blazing one-two punch of "Second One To Know" and "Without Your Love" and packed a stadium sized onslaught into a 9,000-seat arena. He never once veered from his... »»»
Concert Review: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones
Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before. It seemed like Jinks has made a lot of musical inroads into the public's consciousness because roughly three quarters of the audience raised their hands to show that this was their first time.
That probably made Jinks feel pretty darn good about how life has been... »»»
