Reviver Records is excited to announce the signing of Michael Tyler to their roster. “In signing Michael, we feel that we have landed an artist who has his ear very much in tune with where the Country Music format is headed,” said Reviver President David Ross. “The industry is quickly finding out about Michael as a songwriter, and we believe that soon people are going to become huge fans of his as an artist.”
A native of Thayer, Missouri, Tyler has had a hand in writing “Shipwrecked” and “Ain’t Startin’ Tonight” for label mates LOCASH. He also co-penned “Laid Back” from Jason Aldean’s million-selling Old Boots, New Dirt album. Tyler is currently watching as his first single as a songwriter, “Somewhere On A Beach,” climbs the charts for Dierks Bentley.
Country Music definitely flows in the bloodstream of Tyler, who is a descendant of “The Father of Country Music,” Jimmie Rodgers – one of the three original members of the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1961. At the age of thirteen, Tyler had an online meeting with renowned producer Michael Knox – known for his work with Jason Aldean. After making several trips to Nashville throughout his teenage years, Tyler signed a publishing deal with peermusic Nashville, which prompted his move south to Music City.
