On December 4th, Tyler Farr pulled into Charles Town, WV, as fans traveled from as far away as Canada to see their favorite blue collar performer play at the Hollywood Casino.
This was Farr’s first performance after two weeks of vocal rest due to bronchitis. Farr kicked off the show with the perfect opener, “C.O.U.N.T.R.Y.” It’s upbeat, catchy and rocks hard. He followed up with fan favorites and top hits such as “Whiskey In My Water” and “Ain’t Even Drinkin.” However, a delightful surprise was when he played “Damn Good Friends” a duet he originally sang with Jason Aldean that can be found on his current album Suffer In Peace.
Farr is an exceptional talent and passion literally pours out of him. During his performance of “Suffer In Peace” that passion certainly comes to light. An emotional performer with incredible vocals, Farr certainly knows how to impress. His authentic sound is an ode to traditional country music and makes him unique in today’s country music landscape. He really is the closest thing to Johnny Cash since…well…Johnny Cash. I think we all forget that Cash was once labeled as rock and roll and Farr brings that edge to his music like very few artists can (unless your name is Eric Church). Farr closed out the night with his biggest hit “Redneck Crazy” to the delight of the Charles Town crowd.
Tyler Farr is an underrated artist who doesn’t get the credit he deserves in mainstream country. Tyler Farr doesn’t just play country music, Tyler Farr IS country music.
