Tyler Farr is celebrating his first No. 1 single. “Redneck Crazy” topped the Mediabase Country charts this week. Co-written by Josh Kear, Mark Irwin, and Chris Tompkins, it is featured on his debut album, Redneck Crazy, which was released September 30.
“Thank you to all of my fans and to country radio for the love and support y’all have shown me throughout my career,” he said. “From the moment I first heard this song, I knew we had something unique and different. The edge it brought to the table, lyrically and musically, took me to a time where I felt those emotions, which is why we write and sing country music, to make people feel something, and thankfully, country music fans did. I am very humbled by this entire experience and will continue to write, sing and record country music for country music fans and country music radio.”
It was a busy week for Tyler, leading up to the news that his song had topped the chart. He served as the inaugural performer for the Grand Ole Opry and Southwest Airlines’ “Nashville’s New Music in New York” Bryant Park Concert Series and made his national television debut on Fox and Friends.
