Michael Tyler - 317 Out Now

by Emily Huehns


     The Country Source had a chance to talk with upcoming country artist, Michael Tyler. Making his debut, Tyler is in the works on releasing his very first album. However, Tyler isn’t new to the country scene. Tyler became widely recognized for his part in writing Dierks Bentley’s No. 1 platinum-selling hit, “Somewhere on a Beach.” 

     “Whenever someone like Jason Aldean or Dierks Bentley wants to record one of your songs, its just a feeling that can’t be explained,” said Tyler. “its hard to believe I am the one recording my own songs now.” 

     Tyler will be debuting his album 317 on March 17th, 2017. It is no coincidence that the title and the release date go hand in hand. When the young country star moved his way from Missouri to Nashville, he came to find that his odometer read: 317 as his trip came to an end. 

     With nothing but time to write this album, Tyler has put a lot of himself into these songs. From experiences with girls, life in Missouri and growing up through the years, Tyler hopes the fans will be able to connect with his words.  

“I’m excited for the fans to hear all of my emotions and experiences. I had a couple of years to write this album, so I put a lot of me into it.” - Michael Tyler

     If life wasn’t crazy enough already it would be hard to believe there was more, but you better believe it. Life in between the crazy, Tyler has been on the Ones to Watch Tour with LOCASH. On this tour you can hear Tyler play some covers as well as songs off of his new album, such as his most recent single “They Can’t See.” On February 28, 2017, the premiere of the music video for “They Can’t See” appeared on CMT. 

     “It is still a weird feeling being in front of the cameras,” said Tyler. “Waking up and seeing my video on CMT was one of the weirdest and coolest experiences. This is a video I am excited for the fans to see.” 

     With a new album, a new music video, and a whole lot of crazy, Michael Tyler fans have a lot to look forward to. We look forward to seeing this young country artist take off!
