Jason Aldean is taking a seat in the producer’s chair for his buddy Tyler Farr’s new record.

Farr, who returned to the stage on Sunday (May 15) for the first time since his vocal cord surgery, revealed the news to Nashville’s News Channel 5 prior to his free show at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge.

“He was pretty hard on me,” Farr said of Aldean. “We’d go from pretty much sunup to sundown every day, and he was very persistent on finding what he wanted out of my voice and what he wanted to capture.”

The pair, who toured together last year, have a great relationship, both on stage and off. “We’re pretty blunt with each other,” he shared. “We have fun with each other and that’s what makes country music special.”

Farr revealed that he and Aldean have recorded four songs for the new project so far. The album will be Farr’s first release since his vocal cord surgery, which forced him to cancel a tour with his good buddy Lee Brice. While he admits that he hasn’t been able to “put the pedal to the floor” just yet, he is happy with the results of the procedure.

“Not only did I get back my range I had before, but I got five and a half notes higher than I’ve ever been able to sing,” he explained.

Next up, Farr will join Brad Paisley on the Life Amplified World Tour, which runs through the summer.
