There’s a song that is about to start getting some national airplay, if it hasn’t already, by newcomer [lastfm link_type=""]Tyler Farr[/lastfm]. The song is called Hot Mess, and it celebrates a woman who is the light of a man’s life, even if she is a bit of a mess! Sound like anyone you know? The Missouri native says what helped him to be an entertainer was playing the honky-tonks in and around Nashville.
Tyler says: “I moved here, got a job workin’ the door at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, one of the most famous honky-tonks in Nashville. They gave me a chance to sing if someone didn’t show up, and it was all said and done, and I did a good job at it. I mean, I was like, ‘Man, I can do this,’ you know? At first, I would stand up there, you know, just kinda, you know, like [lastfm link_type=""]George Strait[/lastfm], but you can’t do that, unless you’re George Strait. (laughs) So, I had to learn the art of entertaining, and after doin’ it and playin’ the honky-tonks from 10 to 2am every night — probably took about five years off of my life — but after doing that, it was…best thing for me. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”
