Born in Mobile, Alabama, Tyler's music is well rooted in Southern Americana. Growing up listening to his uncle play guitar and sing on the porch deck of a beach house, Tyler's inspiration came at an early age. Tyler attended the Florida State University, where he built a loyal fan base and solidified his drive to play music for a living. He has tailored his music to the live venue while paying his dues and performing in bars for eight years before recording his first album, Whiskey Down.
Tyler and his band can be found touring nationally with fellow country acts Eric Church, Jake Owen, Deirks Bentley, Lee Brice, Willie Nelson, Lady Antebellum, Randy Houser, Jerrod Niemman, Easton Corbin, Chris Young, Montgomery Gentry, Jamey Johnson, Corey Smith, Little Big Town, ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Pat Green, Robert Earl Keen, Jack Ingram, Eli Young Band, Ryan Bingham, Heidi Newfield, Jonathan Singleton and the Grove, Dwight Yoakam, and Emily West.
Tyler's performances are riddled with stories - usually funny stories - about inspiration for his songs, having a few too many, and even about spending a night or two in jail. These performances are infectiously enjoyable and, more times than not, promote one hell of a party atmosphere. His blend of southern-style and raw country finds audiences waiting with opened arms and raised glasses.
