Listen to Tyler Farr on iHeartRadio

Tyler Farr is being recognized for his love of the outdoors and his support for the troops.  He's been tapped as September's NRA Country Artist Of The Month. 

Tyler says music and the outdoors are "fundamental parts" of who he is.  The singer adds that he'll "never take for granted" that in the U.S. "you have the freedom to fight for what you believe in and the ability to do what you love for a living." 

With country music as his chosen profession, Tyler is currently gearing up for the release of his debut album, Redneck Crazy, which will hit stores September 30th.  He'll also hit the road with Florida Georgia Line in October.
