Listen: Tyler Childers Has The Mountain Stage Song of the Week

Tyler Childers performs on this week's encore episode of Mountain Stage, hitting stations starting January 22nd.

Our Song of the Week comes from Kentucky's renowned country artist Tyler Childers.

Childers first appeared on Mountain Stage in 2017 and has been one of the fastest rising stars in all of music. In September of 2020, Tyler surprised many by announcing the release of his fifth studio record, 'Long Violent History', which accompanied a 5-minute video calling for justice for Breonna Taylor while encouraging his fans to dig deep into the issues surrounding systemic racism. The album showcases Tyler's newly acquired fiddle chops and the string band roots that have surrounded him in eastern Kentucky.

On this week's show we'll also hear from songwriting great Mary Gauthier, mandolin super-picker Johnny Staats and the Delivery Boys, some jazzy-alt-country from Miss Tess & the Talkbacks, plus we'll be visited by West Virginia Storyteller Bil Lepp. Click here for the playlist.
