I am definitely a Ty Herndon fan. I’ve seen him on stage, I’ve been listening to his music for a long time. It shouldn’t surprise me that when young Tyler Barham was covering Ty’s classic, “What Mattered Most” for his popular YouTube Channel, Ty walked in and surprised him with an impromptu duet. You can watch the video by clicking here.
Tyler had introduced the song by talking about how he had met one of his singing heroes, Ty Herndon, at Country Radio Seminar (CRS 2014) the week prior, and how that meeting inspired him to cover the powerful ballad. Ty Herndon said he heard Tyler recording the video at his label’s studio and looked in to see who was singing his hit. Ty later commented, “this young man has everything it takes to be a major star in country music!”
Keep up with Ty Herndon on his web site, follow him on Twitter @TyHerndoncom, and have a look at his Facebook page, too. His new album, Lies I Told Myself, is out now, and it has some great music for us, including the song, I Can’t, featuring Jamie O’Neal.
