Childers will release his new album, "Rustin' In The Rain," this Friday, September 8 on Hickman Holler Records/RCA. Childers hosted a
special "Tyler Childers & Friends" show at the Grand Ole Opry last night, performing alongside S.G. Goodman, Margo Price, Erin Rae and The Travelin' McCourys, all of whom are also featured on the new album.
The lead single is "In Your Love." The record also features new renditions of Kris Kristofferson's "Help Me Make It Through the Night" and Goodman's "Space and Time" as well as special guest vocals from Goodman, Price and Rae ("Luke 2:8-10") and McCoury, Jason Carter and Alan Bartram of the Travelin' McCourys ("Percheron Mules").
"This is a collection of songs I playfully pieced together as if I was pitching a group of songs to Elvis," Childers said. "Some covers, one co-write, and some I even wrote in my best (terrible) Elvis impersonation, as I worked around the farm and kicked around the house. I hope you enjoy listening to this album as much as I enjoyed creating it. Thank you. Thank you very much."
Recorded at Dragline Studios, the album was produced by Childers and The Food Stamps — James Barker (pedal steel), Craig Burletic (bass), CJ Cain (guitar), Rodney Elkins (drums), Chase Lewis (keyboards) and Jesse Wells (guitar, fiddle).
