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.

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: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music
John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia.
But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
