TYLER CHILDERS CONFIRMED FOR “STAGECOACH SPOTLIGHT TOUR”

TICKETS ON-SALE TODAY

CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED DEBUT ALBUM OUT NOW, PRODUCED BY STURGILL SIMPSON AND DAVID FERGUSON

Tyler Childers will extend his nationwide tour this spring as part of the “Stagecoach Spotlight Tour,” which includes stops at Denver’s Gothic Theatre, Portland’s Wonder Ballroom, San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall (two nights), Knoxville’s Bijou Theatre (already sold out) and Phoenix’s Crescent Ballroom among many others. Tickets are now on-sale. He’ll also join John Prine for multiple shows this spring as well as Margo Price for two sold-out shows at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. See below for complete details.

The tour follows a breakout year for Childers, which included a series of sold-out shows across the country and the release of his critically acclaimed debut album, Purgatory. The record—produced by Sturgill Simpson and David Ferguson—landed on multiple “Best of 2017” lists including Rolling Stone, Vice’s Noisey, Wide Open Country and NPR Music, who praised, “The intimacy he conjures is his gift, in this private moment made universal, and throughout his remarkable official debut.” Watch Childers perform the album track, “Whitehouse Road,” HERE.

Recent critical acclaim for Purgatory

“…fully-formed, vivid portrait of Saturday night excess and Sunday morning reality in 21st-century Appalachia.” —Rolling Stone

“Sturgill Simpson produced 26-year old  Tyler  Childers’s  Purgatory, and it’s easily one of the year’s best country LPs.” —The Fader

“…Purgatory immediately places Childers in the conversation with the top tier of artists reviving classic country sounds for a new generation.” —Noisey

“…one of the finest releases of the year and an impressive introduction to a talented newcomer with striking lyrical and musical talent.” —American Songwriter

“Tyler Childers’ brilliant Purgatory is a tribute to his Kentucky homeland and its people. With the tender ‘Feathered Indians’ and the meditative ‘Universal Sound,’ Childers—at just 26—has proven himself to be one of the finest voices and songwriters working today.” —Wide Open Country

Purgatory has definitely established itself as the front runner for country album of the year and put Childers on the list of young artists looking to change the way people talk about country music…” —Glide Magazine

“…the album that emerged under Simpson’s production will slap you silly, what with Childers’ incredibly clever lyrics and the perfect instrumental backing they get here…Childers’ talent is remarkable.” —The Bitter Southerner


In addition to Childers (vocals, acoustic guitar), the album features a variety of world-renowned musicians including Simpson (acoustic guitar, background vocals), Stuart Duncan (fiddle), Miles Miller (drums, background vocals) and Russ Pahl (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, pedal steel, Jew’s harp) among others.

Of the album, the Lawrence Country, KY native comments, “I am extremely grateful for Miles Miller introducing me to Sturgill Simpson, and also for Sturgill and David Ferguson taking the time to work with me. I think we both wanted to make an album for east KY, and I reckon that’s what we did. It’s not about rock, or grass, or country…it’s just hollerin’ in the mountains and stirring shit up! The band Sturgill and David put together was an all-star cast, and an honor to work with and learn from. I hope to do it again, but once is more than most are blessed with. For that I am thankful.”
