Hit maker Tyler Farr returns to country radio with a truck song of a different stripe next month. He’s dropping into low gear with the slow-and-steady romance of “Only Truck In Town.”
Set to hit airwaves in late February, the diesel-powered ballad was written by Ben Hayslip, Deric Ruttan and Josh Thompson, and it finds Farr exploring a new road. Still highlighting the Missouri native’s sawtoothed vocal and gritty, blue-collar approach, it nonetheless shows off a softer side than fans might expect — but have no fear. Farr’s penchant for tough-guy antics are still in the mix, with turbo-charged guitars and big-block drums rounding out the mix courtesy of co-producer (and Farr’s good buddy) Jason Aldean.
“Everyone knows Tyler’s voice but they haven’t heard him like this before,” Aldean says in a statement about the track. “We all had such a blast working on this and I’m excited for fans to crank this one up.”
“Words can’t express how pumped I am for this new song,” Farr adds. “‘Only Truck In Town’ is exactly what I wanted as a single coming back to radio. Jason and I both knew this was the one when we first heard it and thought it would connect with Country music fans the way it did with us. I’m very blessed and very grateful for this time in my life.”
“She makes me feel like I’m the only truck in town,” goes the song’s jacked-up chorus, also co-produced by Kurt Allison and Tully Kennedy and marking the first release of Aldean’s Night Train Records.
‘Only Truck In Town’ represents something of a comeback for Farr, who released three singles from 2016 – 2018 which all failed to crack country radio’s Top 50. Farr scored his last chart topper with 2014’s Gold certified “A Guy Walks Into a Bar,” and also had Platinum hits with “Redneck Crazy” and “Whiskey In My Water.” He and Aldean plan to reveal more about Farr’s upcoming full album soon.
