New Artist of the Month: Michael Tyler
Hot country newcomer Michael Tyler’s debut single, “Crazy Last Night”, which world premiered on CMT, is gaining radio airplay across the country and was selected as one of Billboard’s Country Songs of the Summer Picks. Currently, MT is on tour with Canaan Smith and will join Reviver Records labelmates LOCASH in the fall of 2016 and throughout 2017 for Live Nation's 'Ones To Watch' Tour.
MT, already a No. 1 songwriter, co-penned Dierks Bentley's three-week No. 1 platinum-selling smash "Somewhere on a Beach." MT also penned Jason Aldean’s “Laid Back” on the Platinum selling album Old Boots New Dirt, three songs on the LOCASH album The Fighters(“Shipwrecked,” “Ain’t Startin Tonight,” and “Moonwalkin”) and a Jason Aldean/Kelsea Ballerini duet “First Time Again” on Aldean’s new album They Don’t Know. Hailing from Thayer, Missouri, known as a railroad town, it’s ironic MT is the descendant of the late, great Jimmie Rodgers, known as "The Father of Country Music" who learned his craft around the New Orleans and Northeastern Railroad. At the age of 13, over a Myspace meeting, MT met award-winning producer Michael Knox (Jason Aldean/Thomas Rhett/Kelly Clarkson/Trace Adkins). After a few years of sending songs and ideas back and forth, MT came to Nashville, Tenn. to play a show at Tootsies Orchid Lounge for their first face-to-face meeting. At that time, Knox was hired by peermusic Nashville to help restructure the creative department. After watching MT play a few shows, Knox felt it was time for him to make the move to Nashville as a peermusic songwriter. The future has just started for this young singer/songwriter who is on the road touring all over the country with his energetic live show.
