I have frequent occasion to shake my head and wonder how it took so damn long to get to one musician or another. A problem exacerbated by an influx of ultra-talented young musicians jostled for a spot next to the old greats. I am discovering great new music faster than I can get Music Monday posts out. Tyler Childers may be the greatest discovery of the last year and a half.
Out today: Country Squire by Tyler Childers.
Childers is another one of them Kentucky boys setting the indie country world on fire these days (just don’t call him Americana). He deserves to be ever bit as big as Stapleton or Sturgill. Childers has released two music videos for songs from Country Squire.
You can order Country Squire from Amazon today!
Live at Woodstock by Creedence Clearwater Revival is also out today.
