Acclaimed singer, songwriter and musician Tyler Childers made his television debut last night performing his new song “House Fire” on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” 

The performance celebrates the release of Childers’ critically acclaimed new album, Country Squire, which is out now via Hickman Holler Records/RCA Records. Stream/purchase HERE. Childers’ first release in partnership with RCA Records, Country Squire was produced by Sturgill Simpson and David Ferguson and recorded TheButcher Shoppe in Nashville.  

In support of the record, Childers’ extensive “Country Squire Run” headlining tour kicks off this fall including stops at Los Angeles’ The Wiltern, Brooklyn’s Brooklyn Steel (two nights), Boston’s House of Blues, Washington D.C.’s The Anthem, Seattle’s Paramount Theatre, Minneapolis’ First Avenue (two nights), Atlanta’s The Tabernacle and Philadelphia’s The Fillmore among several others. See below for complete details.

Of the mission behind the album, Childers comments, “I hope that people in the area that I grew up in find something they can relate to. I hope that I’m doing my people justice and I hope that maybe someone from somewhere else can get a glimpse of the life of a Kentucky boy.”

In addition to Childers (vocals, acoustic guitar), the album features a number of world-renowned musicians including Stuart Duncan (fiddle, mandolin, banjo), Miles Miller (drums, background vocals) and Russ Pahl (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, pedal steel, Jaw harp, baritone).

The release of Country Squire continues a series of breakout years for the Kentucky-native, whose critically acclaimed debut album, Purgatory, was released in 2017. The record—also produced by Sturgill Simpson and David Ferguson—landed on multiple “Best of 2017” lists including NPR Music, Rolling Stone, Noisey, The Bluegrass Situation, Wide Open Country and The Boot. Of the album, NPR Music raves “the intimacy he conjures is his gift, in this private moment made universal, and throughout his remarkable official debut,” while Pitchfork declares “it’s his voice, peppered with both the knowledge of the ages and the innocence of youth, that makes a song…so effective. Then it’s the lyrics, a mix of plain-talk honesty and beguiling metaphors, that tip the scales to timeless.” Since his debut, Childers was named “Emerging Artist of the Year” at the 2018 Americana Music Association Honors & Awards and has been featured on NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concert series and Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. Additionally, he’s toured extensively across the world including over 130 sold-out headline shows as well as multiple dates supporting John Prine. He has also performed at several major festivals including Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Newport Folk Festival, Austin City Limits and Stagecoach.
