NEW YORK — Lawrence County born wordsmith Tyler Childers made his long-awaited, highly-anticipated national television debut on Tuesday night, performing “House Fire” from his latest album Country Squire on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

The moment was monumental for Childers, the current torch bearer for not only Kentucky music but for those who’ve grown weary of the run of the mill pop country garbage dominating the airwaves as well, as he and the Food Stamps look to continue to extend the olive branch of authentic, gritty and melodic country music to the masses, helping to stretch the Kentucky story and soundtrack nationwide.

The accomplishment is the latest among many the artist has checked off over the last two years following the 2017 release of his debut album Purgatory, which has elevated the songwriter from playing dives and local watering holes around Appalachia to performing on some of the biggest stages in the world including the Grand Ole Opry, Ryman Auditorium, Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, among others.

Watch Childers’ performance of “House Fire” below.

Childers returns to his Kentucky home this weekend to perform during the inaugural Railbird Festival at Keeneland on Aug. 11. For more information visit RailbirdFest.com and TylerChildersMusic.com.
