Tyler Farr Joins ‘Crazy Hearts: Nashville’ for a Tour of Music City [VIDEO]
The ‘Redneck Crazy’ singer started off on Nashville’s iconic Broadway street, home to the city’s famed honky tonks and the historic Ryman Auditorium. Farr has deep connections with the street, since he started out in Nashville working the door at Tootsie’s.
“On any given day at any time of the day you can walk right down these streets and hear music and any honky tonk on Broadway,” Farr says when asked what he loves about the city. “You’ve got to be here to make it happen and if you don’t put 110% in and be willing to go the extra mile, there’s someone right in one of these honky tonks up and down this street that is ready to take your place.”
The duo moved away from downtown Nashville to check out some of Farr’s other favorite Music City haunts, including John Rich’s Mt. Richmore home, his favorite BBQ joint and the Nashville Armory. While Farr is busy shooting guns, Byrd gives fans a glimpse into the Building, a local creative hub for Nashville musicians and a major filming location in ‘Crazy Hearts: Nashville.’
“Working on a reality show is by far the strangest thing I have ever gotten myself into. I don’t think you can ever get used to the cameras,” she says of the experience. “This show is getting ready to come out in January — January 15 to be exact, and I am freaking out.”
The A&E show vows to “go backstage into the lives and lyrics of several up-and-coming musicians as they try to hit it big, fall in love and live to sing about it,” including “love triangles and fiery relationships that will cause rivalry both on- and off-stage.”
