Tyler Farr is definitely one of the good stories in country music from the last few years. He kind of came out of nowhere with a couple singles that struggled and then burst on the scene. And he really hasn’t looked back since. You have to give his label credit for sticking with him. Here is his next single.
Poor Boy – Tyler Farr
A story song!
I love it.
We don’t get this as much these days in country music. But I’ve been hearing rumblings of more story songs out there. I think Martina McBride said something to that point recently. She’s been hearing some good story songs in Nashville circles. Maybe this is one of them.
This is really a song about a good love and a good life. You have this kid that grew up maybe without much. But he keeps his head down and works hard and finds the love of his life. And bless her heart she stays with him and trusts her heart despite what all the people around them are saying.
And that’s really one of the secrets to life. You have to follow your own heart and your own head. You’re not always going to be right, but you’ll be right more often than not. You’ll live. You’ll learn.
Great song here and it’s really catchy too. I think it could be Tyler’s best song yet and I hope you agree. But let me know what you think.
