Sony Music Nashville/Villa 40 singer-songwriter Tyler Booth shares his new track today, “Real Real Country.” Listen here. Tyler is confirmed to play C2C festival in March.
“When I wrote ‘Real Real Country’ I was really just having fun with it and not putting too much pressure on myself as a songwriter,” Booth said. “To me this song bridges a lot of things – modern country to traditional country, and even country music to a little bit of hip-hop. I had a lot of fun experimenting with different kinds of music and seeing where I could land that thing and still be true to myself. I’m really proud of this song because I wrote it by myself, and I think it really reflects who I am as an artist and where I’m heading.”
Written solely by Booth, the song is his first new music of the year, following last year’s cover of Post Malone’s “Feeling Whitney” and his heartfelt track, “Hey Dad.”
Recently, Booth shared stages with acts such as Darius Rucker, Jon Pardi, and Brooks & Dunn, and he is currently out on his headlining “Country Gang Tour.” The road warrior has gained a loyal fanbase through his extensive touring and is also backed by his over 850k followers on social media. CMT described Booth as, “a country traditionalist with an impressive knack for storytelling” while American Songwriter called him, “an outlaw with the baritone voice, an endearing smile and a flowing mullet,” who “just might prove to be a breath of fresh country air in a world of far too perfectly coifed and filtered country superstars.”
About Tyler Booth:
Road warrior, songsmith, and proud Kentucky native Tyler Booth has been making a name for himself in country music since he first started playing festivals around his home state as a high schooler. Born and raised in Wolfe County, Kentucky, he grew up in a musical family, often sitting in on the rehearsals of his dad’s rock band. After enrolling in Morehead State University’s Traditional Music Studies program, he quickly caught the attention of one of his professors, Scott Miller, an old friend of songwriter Phil O’Donnell (George Strait, Craig Morgan). After Miller made the connection, O’Donnell invited Booth to Nashville, where the two cut his first EP, Self-Titled, released independently in 2017. A couple years later he was featured on legendary duo Brooks and Dunn’s country swing-style ballad, “Lost and Found” on their REBOOT album, and then in 2021 he released his own Grab the Reins EP. After recently sharing stages with artists such as Darius Rucker, Jon Pardi and Brooks and Dunn, Booth is currently on his first-ever headline tour, the “Country Gang” tour. The road warrior has gained a loyal fanbase through his extensive touring and is also backed by his over 850k+ followers on social media. CMT described Booth as, “a country traditionalist with an impressive knack for storytelling” while American Songwriter deemed him, “An outlaw with the baritone voice, an endearing smile and a flowing mullet,” who “just might prove to be a breath of fresh country air in a world of far too perfectly coifed and filtered country superstars.” The entertainer is currently in the studio working on new music set to be released this year.
