Farr makes pilgrimage to mother church, leaves engaged

Monday, May 11, 2015 – Tyler Farr made pilgrimage to the mother church of country music on Sunday, but the singer wasn't at the Ryman Auditorium to sing a few songs.

He did get down on one knee though to ask his girlfriend of 2 years, Hannah Freeman, for her hand in marriage. With the stained-glass windows framing the happy couple, Freeman said yes.

"Yes I'm a sucker for heartbreak songs. But, with every heartache you learn, and that coincides with my music career; which all the times and trials led me to find my best friend, a woman that truly makes me a better person. And I am now so very blessed and proud to call her my fiancé," Farr said.

"Truly the best moment of my life. And I honestly couldn't think of a better church than the mother church of country music."

Farr just released his second album, "Suffer in Peace."

Redneck Crazy 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 »»»
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. »»»
