'Rustin’ In The Rain' The Highly Anticipated New Album From Tyler Childers Is Out
By Stevie Connor.
Rustin’ In The Rain, the highly anticipated new album from renowned singer-songwriter and musician Tyler Childers, is out via Hickman Holler Records/RCA Records.
Already receiving critical attention, Childers recently spoke with The New York Times, who praises, “His songs with roots in bluegrass, Southern rock and Appalachian tradition have pushed the boundaries of country music and even his own fan base, while cementing him as one of the most successful touring and streaming artists in his field — without the aid of radio,” and continues, “when he sings live, his eyes burn with the ferocity of a preacher, and fans hang on to every word.”
Additionally, ahead of the release, Childers debuted breakthrough lead single, “In Your Love,” alongside an official music video, which debuted as YouTube’s #1 trending music video.
Since then, the song has garnered over 6.1 million video views and 30 million on-demand streams along with acclaim from outlets such as NPR Music, Billboard, Pitchfork, Stereogum, Consequence, The Advocate, OUT, LGBTQ Nation and Rolling Stone, who praises, “the music video of compassion and caring we need right now.” Additionally, USA Today calls the video “a much-needed portrait of inclusivity,” while Paste declares, “Childers is the most essential mainstream country musician working right now.”
In addition to “In Your Love,” the album also features new renditions of Kris Kristofferson’s “Help Me Make It Through the Night” and S.G. Goodman’s “Space and Time” as well as special guest vocals from Goodman, Margo Price and Erin Rae (“Luke 2:8-10”) and Ronnie McCoury, Jason Carter and Alan Bartram of the Travelin’ McCourys (“Percheron Mules”).
The new music adds to yet another landmark year for Childers, who was recently presented with Pandora Radio’s Billions Award and will embark on his global “Mule Pull ’24 Tour” next year.
Newly confirmed stops include New York’s Madison Square Garden, Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena (two nights), Inglewood’s Kia Forum, Austin’s Moody Center, Fort Worth’s Dickies Arena and London’s Eventim Apollo as well as shows in Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Norway and more. Special guests on the tour include Medium Build, Hayes Carll, Sylvan Esso, 49 Winchester, John R. Miller and Allison Russell.
Recorded at Dragline Studios, the album was produced by Childers and The Food Stamps—James Barker (pedal steel), Craig Burletic (bass), CJ Cain (guitar), Rodney Elkins (drums), Chase Lewis (keyboards) and Jesse Wells (guitar, fiddle).
The new album follows last year’s triple album, Can I Take My Hounds to Heaven?, which featured eight songs presented in three distinct sonic perspectives — Hallelujah, Jubilee and Joyful Noise. Released to widespread acclaim, his two previous releases, 2019’s #1 Country Squire as well 2017’s RIAA Platinum debut, Purgatory, were released to overwhelming critical and commercial acclaim. In the years since his debut, Childers has earned two Grammy nominations and has been featured on “CBS This Morning,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concert series and “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown.”
