Tyler Farr grew up in southern Missouri in a farming town with no traffic lights, a U.S. Post office that has been in operation since 1875 and a population of fewer than 2,000. While growing up in small-town America, when he wasn’t chasing turkeys and deer every chance he got, he was singing. Farr left Missouri for Nashville in 2010. A natural singer, it didn’t take long for him to get noticed. Known for his powerhouse vocals, Tyler’s real-guy relatability in songs like “Redneck Crazy” and “A Guy Walks Into a Bar” found a following of folks searching to find themselves in music that underscores their daily routines and future dreams; they found that in Tyler. Like a weathered old truck with rusty tail pipes, Tyler’s music can sometimes be a little loud and gritty. Other songs include the glory of a backroad on “Heaven on Dirt,” the wistful song “Soundtrack to a Small Town Sundown,” and the heart-wrenching “I Wish Dogs Could Live Forever” in memory of Tyler’s beloved bloodhound, Cooter. Tyler’s music is honest and relates to what he loves himself–hunting, fishing, getting dirty, loving his dog. Tyler Farr has, and always will be, unapologetically NRA Country.

LS: You recently became a father. How do you share your love for the outdoors with your wife and daughter

LS: Who got you into the outdoors, hunting and fishing? Granddad? Grandma? Dad? Mom? Uncle?

LS: What does freedom mean to you?
