BBR Music Group’s chart-topping Tyler Farr announces that his EP, Only Truck in Town will be released digitally tooday (Friday June 5th). His first body of work since 2015, the EP will feature four songs, including his current single “Only Truck in Town.” The music video for the EP title track and current single will premiere on CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown on Saturday, June 6th.
To celebrate this hotly-anticipated project, Farr will be Facebook’s Artist of the Day upon its release on Friday and will go live with megastar Jason Aldean on Instagram, Monday, June 8th at 7pm CT (1am BST – Tues June 9th). Aldean produced the project and Farr’s current single, “Only Truck in Town” was the first music released via Aldean’s Night Train Records. The two will talk about the new project, what it was like in the studio working together, their friendship and quarantine activities.
“It’s been five years since I put out the Suffer in Peace album—I love my fans and they have been waiting patiently for new music and now I can finally say that the new music is here…for them,” said Tyler Farr. “These songs really speak to who I am—my good buddy, Jason Aldean, produced the EP and knows me better than most people so working with him just felt right. Together we created something very real and that’s exactly what I want my fans to hear from me.”
With his wife being a critical care nurse working in the Covid unit, Farr has seen the impact of the pandemic firsthand and has been getting involved the past few weeks. In addition to supporting healthcare workers and the staff at the Williamson County Medical, in an effort to thank the essential drivers who have been making sure things get to where they need to be, teamed up with US Xpress to perform for and chat with their drivers on a livestream. In addition, last week Tyler performed on the Folds of Honor Rock n’ Raise virtual charity concert series.
Fans have already connected with Farr’s latest track, “Only Truck in Town,” with the mid-tempo love song garnering more than 2 million streams since its release. Oozing with rock electric guitar and signature Tyler Farr grit, “Only Truck in Town” is an ode to a country love— and perhaps a nod to Farr’s new season of life. It seems as though the guy from “Redneck Crazy” finally found the right gal to sit in his shotgun seat.
Despite settling down, Farr is still no stranger to shenanigans—the music video for “Only Truck in Town” features Tyler doing donuts in his truck, along with a little manual labor before a bonfire with the band. US fans can tune in Saturday morning (6/6) to CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown to watch the world premiere, before it is shared worldwide on his official Youtube channel.
The Missouri native has three No. 1 songs to his credit (“Redneck Crazy,” “Whiskey in My Water,” and “A Guy Walks Into a Bar”). With his debut album Redneck Crazy released in 2013, Tyler Farr landed at No. 2 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and No. 5 on the Billboard Top 200. His dry wit and energetic live show soon earned him coveted opening slots touring with Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, Brantley Gilbert, and Lee Brice. With the release of his highly-anticipated sophomore album Suffer in Peace in 2015, Farr once again landed in the Top 5 on both the Billboard Top 200 Albums and Billboard Country Albums Chart making Farr the only solo male country artist to have his first two studio albums debut in the Top 5 on the Billboard 200 Chart.

“One of the best male vocalists in Country music today,” (Taste of Country), Tyler Farr is the first artist signed to Jason Aldean’s Night Train Records/BBR Music Group. The Country-rocker, with three No.1 songs to his credit (“Redneck Crazy,” “Whiskey in My Water,” and “A Guy Walks Into a Bar”) broke onto the scene with the 2013 release of his debut album, Redneck Crazy, which landed at No. 2 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and #5 on the Billboard Top 200. Farr’s platinum-selling title-track “Redneck Crazy” projected Farr forward to celebrate back-to-back No. 1 singles, including his first No. 1 as a songwriter, with his Platinum-certified hit “Whiskey in my Water.” His sophomore album, Suffer In Peace followed suit, also making its debut in the Top 5 on both the BILLBOARD Top 200 Albums and BILLBOARD Country Albums Charts, leading Farr to become 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 Chart.
Recognised as a 2014 CRS New Faces of Country Radio and 2014 Music Row “Breakthrough Artist of the Year” nominee, the opera-trained singer quickly earned coveted slots touring with Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, Brantley Gilbert, Luke Combs and Lee Brice. The Missouri native’s dry wit, silly antics and reputation as “a no-frills musician who pours his drinks as hard as he pours his heart into his songs,” (Rolling Stone), lead to Farr to receiving his own reality series A Little Too Farr (Unscripted) and a social following eager to see his next move. Farr is currently working on new music with longtime friend, Jason Aldean serving as a producer for the forthcoming project and his new single “Only Truck in Town” is out on Country radio now, with his EP of the same name will be released today.
