Columbia Nashville recording artist Tyler Farr is known for his raspy baritone vocals as well as his rebellious ways, however, his new single titled “I Should Go To Church Sometime” is totally out of the ballpark for what fans expect from Tyler. The track was written by Brinley Addington, Michael Hardy and Sarah Turner and it’s a powerful one.
An electric guitar riff plays beautifully as Tyler Farr’s angelic vocals sing in harmony about how sad the world can be today, “saw a man on the sidewalk “Hungry” written in red chalk maybe he just wanted to talk but I walked away. Saw a kid on the TV he was only seventeen wrapped his truck ‘round an oak tree the whole town prayed. I should go to church sometime.” A midtempo chorus echo’s Farr’s soul searching thoughts that are not only deep but rather identifiable. With powerful lyrics such as “I should go to church sometime maybe walk a little straighter line Lord knows I could use the light to get where I’m going. I shouldn’t say next Sunday I shouldn’t let my pride get in the way I know I shouldn’t be afraid of what I know I’ll find, I should go to church sometime” this new single delivers a hungry and solid message.
God has always been a part of country music, however, somewhere along the line we lost track of the meaning of country music where tailgates and short shorts took over the genre but Farr not only surprises us with this new side he also brings back the true value of country music and it’s story lines. Farr has always been an artist who tends to stick to those meaningful and heartfelt tracks but he is also a strong soul who has been overlooked and is somewhat underrated. Although he has three number one singles under his belt, he is still not given all the credit that some other artists with the same resume receive. Why? Well, you got me, he IS country. No gimmicks, no twerking, no shenanigans… just pure talent and artistry.
“I Should Go To Church Sometime” shows amazing growth and maturity from the “Redneck Crazy” singer. It’s a strong track that will have you doing some soul searching yourself. Farr just might have himself his fourth #1 with this single.
