Tyler Farr has had a massive hit with his single “Redneck Crazy” building intense anticipation for his album that was released yesterday, September 30th. With a distinct voice and notable range Tyler’s “Redneck Crazy” easily demonstrates his staying power in country music. The album allows the listener to dive in and really get to know Tyler’s style, sound and songwriting ability.
“Redneck Crazy” has eleven tracks, six of which Tyler penned. It kicks off with “Dirty” which is the perfect way to introduce the album. The song has a more traditional leaning sound, fun lyrics and shows a lighthearted side to Tyler. When you first glance at the rest of the track listing you will notice many of the songs deal with a common country theme…drinkin’! There is “Makes You Wanna Drink,” “Whiskey in My Water,” “Ain’t Even Drinkin,’” and “Chicks, Trucks, And Beer.” I am certainly on the side of believing country music is much more than beer, trucks and dirt roads. However, if you get past the somewhat stereotypical titles Tyler does show his originality making songs like “Whiskey in My Water” a sweet song about his feelings for a woman with lyrics like,
“Everyday I pray I thank God I got her, she’s the moon in my shine, the whiskey in my water”
Not all songs rely on the drinking theme. My favorite on the album is the heartfelt ballad “Hello Goodbye.” The song delivers deep emotion and really shows the power of Tyler’s voice. I also appreciated the addition of the acoustic sounding “Living With the Blues.” The up-tempo “Wish I Had a Boat” is probably the catchiest song on the album. It will most certainly become a quick fan favorite with lyrics that just scream sing along with me!
Overall this is a solid album. While next time around I would probably like to see the themes of the songs be a bit broader, there is no denying Tyler’s immense talent. If you are a fan the single “Redneck Crazy” you certainly will not be disappointed with the way this album shaped up. “Redneck Crazy” is available everywhere TODAY and I would definitely say it is worth checking out!
