Born and raised in the small town of Garden City, Missouri, Tyler grew up hunting and fishing, playing football and baseball, and of course, singing. At the age of 16 he had the opportunity of going on the road with country music legend, George Jones. That was all it took for him to realize that’s what he wanted to do. With the help of a friend and hunting buddy, Rhett Akins, Tyler began to move forward in the industry. For the past year Tyler has been writing for Sony BMG’s publishing company “Monument” and working with Jim Catino. He continues to write music on a weekly basis and get in his deer stand when he can find the time. For the following year Tyler will be on the road opening and playing for Colt Ford.
