Tyler Farr Goes ‘Redneck Crazy’ at 2015 iHeartRadio Country Festival [WATCH]
"I need to see everybody off their hindquarters, standing up," Farr yelled from stage. "We're celebrating country music tonight!"
And with that, his performance kicked off, and the familiar song began playing. "Redneck Crazy" is the platinum-certified title track of Farr's first album, which was released in the fall of 2013, and helped propel the singer into the country music limelight. The crowd that filled the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas, sang along with every word.
There were other notable country stars performing at the packed event: Darius Rucker performed "Wagon Wheel," Dierks Bentley brought "Drunk on a Plane," and Sam Hunt sang "Leave the Night On." Additional artists included Little Big Town, Justin Moore, the Band Perry, Tim McGraw, Brantley Gilbert, Rascal Flatts and Brad Paisley. Though the 2015 iHeart Radio Country Festival took place at the beginning of May, it wasn't broadcast until Wednesday evening (May 27).
Farr has had some exciting times lately. He got engaged to Hannah Freeman, released a new single, "Withdrawals," and dropped his sophomore record, Suffer in Peace, all in the matter of a couple months. He's currently out on Jason Aldean's 2015 Burn It Down Tour and has several other shows and country festivals scheduled through the middle of October. Fans can visit Farr's website for more information on his trek.
