As someone whose music is primarily influenced by his hometown Lexington, Kentucky, Tyler Childers usually writes songs about his environment. He notably writes often about coal mining, which is his father's occupation. As a songwriter, he has the ability to tell stories powerfully through his songs' lyricism that depicts his perception of some pressing societal issues. This was emphasized in his most recent album, "Long Violent History." The album was a followup to his critically-acclaimed 2019 record "Country Squire."
Considered Childers' surprise release in September 2020, "Long Violent History" reached #1 in the US Folk charts. It is a powerful album that consists mainly of fiddle tracks and centralized on its title track that discusses racism, civil unrest, and police brutality. Influenced by the Black Lives Matter movement and the Battle of Blair Mountain in 1921, he released a video message to accompany the song. He discussed his intention for the album in general and the title track in particular, calling for empathy above all else. The album peaked at #45 on the US Billboard 200 and #6 on the US Top Country Albums.
This year, Childers will be gracing the Red Rocks amphitheater with a two-night concert.
