New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer, Tyler Childers, won "Emerging Artist of the Year" at last night's Americana Music Association Honors & Awards. The award celebrates a breakthrough year for Childers, which saw the release of his critically acclaimed debut album, Purgatory. The record-produced by Sturgill Simpson and David Ferguson-landed on multiple "Best of 2017" lists including Rolling Stone, Vice's Noisey, Wide Open Country and NPR Music, who praised, "The intimacy he conjures is his gift, in this private moment made universal, and throughout his remarkable official debut."

Childers will continue his extensive nationwide tour this fall with headline performances in his largest rooms and venues to date. Stops include NYC's Brooklyn Bowl (sold out), Boston's Royale (sold out), Washington D.C.'s 9:30 Club (sold out), Los Angeles' The Troubadour (sold out), Nashville's Exit/In (three nights, all sold out), Atlanta's Terminal West and Variety Playhouse (both sold out), Dallas' The Rustic (sold out) and Louisville's Louisville Palace (three nights) among many others. Tickets are on-sale now.

Along with Childers (vocals, acoustic guitar), the album features a variety of world-renowned musicians including Simpson (acoustic guitar, background vocals), Stuart Duncan (fiddle), Miles Miller (drums, background vocals) and Russ Pahl (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, pedal steel, Jew's harp) among others.

Of the album, the Lawrence Country, KY native comments, "I am extremely grateful for Miles Miller introducing me to Sturgill Simpson, and also for Sturgill and David Ferguson taking the time to work with me. I think we both wanted to make an album for east KY, and I reckon that's what we did. It's not about rock, or grass, or country...it's just hollerin' in the mountains and stirring shit up! The band Sturgill and David put together was an all-star cast, and an honor to work with and learn from. I hope to do it again, but once is more than most are blessed with. For that I am thankful."
