“They don’t have a rehab for heartbreak.”
Tyler Farr has toyed with his given pigeon hole ever since he first came on the scene back in 2013. His first single ‘Redneck Crazy’ drew much criticism for its bro-country alignment, creepy lyric and general crappiness, while the subsequent album had more than its fair share of bro offerings. Still, his second single ‘Whiskey In My Water’ was a more generic country pop/rock release, and despite both going to #1, his team were ahead of the curve with bro-country and decided it would be best to move onto a new project. ‘A Guy Walks Into A Bar’, the lead single from his sophomore album, was a smart, dryly humorous country pop smash with a catchy hook, and many of his detractors changed their tune. Cue another #1, his new album ‘Suffer In Peace’ debuting, and plenty of new narratives that saw him as a purveyor of heartbreak songs (despite the fact the new album included several more “bro” ish entries).
