Tyler Farr Lays It All On The Table With 'Suffer In Peace'
Farr explains that with the success of his 2013 debut Redneck Crazy and hits like the title track and "Whiskey In My Water" under his belt he is more confident in his craft. He knows the types of songs that best suit him, this album's lead single, "A Guy Walks Into a Bar" being no exception.
Fittingly, Farr stumbled upon the song when he walked into a bar after a day of listening to demos and one of the co-writers, Jonathan Singleton, was playing an acoustic version of the song at a writers' round, a popular setup in Nashville where several songwriters perform new songs and share the stories behind them.
"I'm at the bar maybe ordering a drink of whiskey," he recalls with a smile, "and he starts singing it and I turn around. I was blown away. Immediately after he was done I went up to him and said, 'Dude I got to cut that.' It really happened that easily."
"I said we're going to cut it. I think Blake's alright with hits," Farr recalls. "We had documentation that showed I had it on hold first."
The funny man that Shelton is, Farr said that after he had a show with Jason Aldean, The Voice coach came backstage raising hell about Farr stealing the song from him.
"I played it for him and he said, 'Well done man.' And we proceeded to give each other crap for hours on end and that's how we became friends," Farr says. Read more here.
