Farr signs with Aldean's label

Monday, March 25, 2019 – Tyler Farr, who had a hit with "A Guy Walks Into a Bar," signed with Broken Bow/Night Train Records, the label announced today.

The signing marks first venture between BBR and flagship artist Jason Aldean's Night Train Records.

"I am very excited to be a part of this new chapter in my career with Broken Bow/Night Train Records," said Farr. "I'm looking forward to working with one of my best friends in Jason Aldean and the entire Broken Bow team. Can't wait to see what the future holds."

"Jason is one of the very best song guys in this town and knows the importance of a brand and doing everything you can to reinforce it. Tyler has one of the most distinctive vocals in the format and a track record of success when he records the right songs that fit his brand," said Jon Loba, EVP BBR Music Group. "Hearing Jason and Tyler's vision about the music they wanted to create and the brand they wanted to reinforce, Jason's first signing was easy to green-light. Tyler fills a unique lane and I'm so excited to see what they come up with."

"It's cool to pursue this new endeavor in my career," said Aldean. "I can't think of a better way to start than signing one of my best friends. I also really believe in him as an artist and am looking forward to everyone hearing what we're working on."

Farr, a Missouri native, has three hit songs to his credit ("Redneck Crazy," "Whiskey in My Water" and "A Guy Walks Into a Bar") with Sony. With his debut album "Redneck Crazy" released in 2013, Tyler Farr landed in second on the Billboard Country Albums Chart. He released his sophomore disc, "Suffer in Peace," in 2015, but two follow-up singles to "A Guy Walks Into a Bar" didn't crack the top 25. He left the label in September 2018.

Apparently, he's the only solo male country artist in the past decade to have their first two studio albums debut in the Top 5 on the Billboard 200. That's pretty impressive, because sophomore slumps are real. But the industry has bounced Farr around like he's going through a cloud in prop plane seat.

CD review - Suffer in Peace Sometimes, you have to start at the top before you can get real. Tyler Farr's 2013 debut, "Redneck Crazy," spawned two hits and landed in the Top Five. Colt Ford had him take ""Dirt Road Anthem" for a spin before Jason Aldean cut it. His sophomore effort, "Suffer in Silence," is more introspective. Producers Jim Catino and Julian King showcase an 11-song collection here (3 of which Farr had a hand in writing) that has a much different feel from the full ...
CD review - Redneck Crazy Tyler Farr has a hit on his hands with the title track, and like a good chunk of his debut, he seems far more content with being derivative instead of imaginative. Farr does little to separate himself from the pack, but how could he given that he goes for hip hop, rocks, raps and sings about rednecks and drinking? In other words, there's not a whole lot even remotely new or trailblazing. Farr comes from what is becoming long line of current country artists intent on meshing country with ...
