Tyler Childers - Purgatory

℗ 2017 Hickman Holler Records marketed and distributed by Thirty Tigers

Purgatory Tracklist:


Discovered Tyler’s music two weeks ago and I’m hooked. He perfectly captures the essence of Appalachian art. I hear a unique blend of Jennings & Scruggs in there. The writing & composition are like nothing I’ve ever heard. Sonically, it’s one of a kind. I listen to a lot of “All Your’n” & “Honky Tonk Flame”. Can’t wait to see him live when the pandemic is over.


We’ve been on the road for 6 weeks, traveling from Kalifornistan looking for a red state to move to. Making stops all along the way and heard Whitehouse road playing in a bar (The Pinnacle Club in Cumberland Gap)when we stopped for a beer. I just purchased Purgatory and Country Squire....reminds me of the 8 years I lived in Springfield Missouri, racing and going to bluegrass festivals through the south and east. Best of the BEST....Tyler can make music that makes all the crap go away. Guaranteed, if you like good down home, sittin on the porch tappin your foot, tippin cold ones with good friends and family music....Tyler Childers will satisfy your need.

Tyler struck gold with this one. Incredible songwriting, music composure, and production make this an instant country classic!


Tyler Childers is awesome. That folksy, Appalachian sound takes me home. “Lady May” makes me cry every time.


Love your voice, love this album


Was actually turned on to this guy by Zac Brown shouting him out. Glad he did, love his sound!


Hope he does a concert in Florida soon!


I listen to Purgatory straight through atleast 2 times a week. I absolutely love the sound and the story-telling. Really hope this sound continues in future albums and that Tyler gets the recognition he deserves! Such a talent!


TC Revival, Country Squire dropping in 3 hours - everyone needs to dial in the TC catalogue as he is the Country Music Savior we’ve been longing for!


Great songs start to finish!


An amazing wordsmith, hooks for days, an ode to the old with a fresh voice and vision. Absolutely one of the brightest to come down the creek in a long minute ;)


This is very intriguing and very eccentric! Awesome job! Air-five! =)


Absolutely love everything about this album. Thank You Tyler! I sincerely appreciate your work❤️


Country outlaw music from the working mans heart!!!

Like everything the music industry touches, music has become hot garbage. Just look at the front page of the iTunes store. Soulless Garbage masquerading as music. This is what talent sounds like. This is how art sounds. This is how music is supposed to sound. Pay attention.

The Reformed

Tyler Childers should be among the most famous artist. He is not a flash in the pan. This album is amazing, but his catalogue is so much richer than what you hear here. Find the music and always go to the show.


Literally ever single song on this album is amazing. Don’t mess around, just download them all and enjoy.

Rock n' Roll child

Guys great, he appeals to all country fans along with rock listeners like myself. You can hear the influences of traditional country, bluegrass, along with a rock influence. I’d consider him the closest thing to a modern day Bob Dylan

Kid Vulture

Been living in Chicago for 35 years but my parents, grandparents, thier grandparents, all from Eastern KY. Paintsville to be exact. Mr. Childres paints that picture of Estern KY, spending long summer days doing notheing but loving it. His sound is perfect, well produced, well written. I encourage people to listen to this, if for nothing else, than to realize what county/bluegrass is all about


Album I can put on repeat and just let it flow.

Shut up and lift

In a time of pop-country and artists trying to rap about big trucks and deep v-necks, comes an artist that takes us back to how country and bluegrass is supposed to sound. Nose on the grindstone and whitehouse road are remarkable songs!


What a great album, all of them. This man deserves some recognition. Keep picking my friend 🤙🏻


Just heard about this guy and can’t stop listening to him. Great instrumentals and lyrics.

Cary Miller

With the sounds of Hank Sr mixed with Kentucky country mixed with the Raw lyric genius, there may be a fighting chance for country music to be saved by Mr.Childers... this album is unbelievable so yourself a favor BUY IT!


Sturgill is by far the best thing that has come out of country/outlaw ever....That being said, you can use all his tricks & forma on another's music and it won't be quite the same. Not that it should be. But as in a rock star producing, it doesn't make the new music 'incredible'. Tyler has good stuff. His lyrics are awesome, great stories. However, his voice is just a bit too high on this cd & so its just okay. Think that future collaboration will bear good fruit. Looking forward to a live concert, but not rushing out to get this music...


Amazing sound, great stories and lyrics used to tell those stories.


Beautiful album.


another example of what country music actually sounds like. keep killing it, Tyler.


If you could wear out an MP3 track, my copy of Purgatory would be quite thin. I love these songs. Classic yet current. I’d give it 6 stars if I could!

Downloaded his album in July 2018 and it’s easily my most listened to and loved album ever 🙌🏼 it’s driven me to Colorado and back the long way around, all around my little small town, and even now while I type this. Can’t wait to see Tyler in Oklahoma come December.


A great, great album! Can’t wait for the next one!

Oklahoma I phoner

Tyler Childers is song writing master

Machine world

This is what country music needs


Great song writing, old school country with a modern twist. I can listen to the whole album on repeat.

The Grumps of MC Glnlch

I heard Tyler Childers on a music app. First song I heard was Feathered Indians. I was instantly in love. Came here, listened to song clips, purchased, and now I can’t get enough. My friends can’t get me to shut up. I listen to it all day every day. Then I bought Bottles and Bibles and put both on a playlist. Rinse and repeat all day. Absolutely some of THE most heart stirring music and singing I have heard in my entire life. I like all genres of music, but this kid here....you have brought me home to my music roots. God bless you Tyler Childers. Keep singing to my soul!!!!


Tyler sings from the heart. Between Tyler, Sturgill Simpson, and of course Chris Stapleton, the Kentucky boys are killin' it...

Baseball man 1717

You can tell how much time Tyler puts into every song. Some of the best songwriting I’ve ever heard. Have listened to this album start to end many times. Hopefully he keeps up the great work


The live version of Whitehouse Road is way better on the Red Barn album. Who made the poor decision to NOT have the fiddle on the 2017 album??


This is a great set of songs. Thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish! Love Feathered Indians the most but these are all great tunes in their own right.


I came late to the Tyler Childers party, but I'm extremely glad I stopped by for a drink. This is an exceptional recording. The songs are top notch, and the musicians and production simply excellent. I heard Sturgill Simpson was involved in the production. Congrats. If you are a John Prine and Steve Earl fan, check this out. You're going to want to crank it up a notch.


I first found Tyler Childers at a music festival in Lewisburg WV. Since then, I have fell in love with his music and have followed him hours away to hear his passionate and fun music live. I grew up in southern WV, making me a fellow appalachian, and maybe that's why I connect so well with his music....It is the best music I have heard in years. Please take a listen.

Barney Frank

One of my favorite albums of 2017.

Name name namenamenamenamename

True Appalachian music written for the sake of the song and not pop country radio. The new Nashville Outlaws are Sturgill Simpson Tyler Childers and Jason Isbell Buy there music!!
