Tyler Farr Goes “Redneck Crazy”

Tyler Farr

With his new single “Redneck Crazy” now at radio, Columbia Nashville newcomer Tyler Farr has witnessed many ‘redneck crazy’ moments in his years on the road. He spent his teenage years, side stage at George Jones concerts watching his step-dad play guitar for the country legend and more recently, playing over 200 shows opening for Colt Ford.

“Yeah man, I saw just about everything you can imagine on the road and a jealous boyfriend or girlfriend was at the root of a lot of them,” said Tyler. “I’ve been there myself too but luckily the Yankee candle flying through the air didn’t hit me in the head,” he laughed. “This thing called love makes people nuts and makes you go ‘redneck crazy.’ So when I heard this song, I knew instantly I wanted to record it.” The song was written by Josh Kear, Mark Irwin and Chris Tompkins.
