The day of festivities was followed by a night of live music presented by Nashville’s well-known Whiskey Jam, where Braden played alongside friend Joey Hyde and his producer/singer-writer Randy Montana. The tournament was the epitome of all of Braden’s passions: Country music, first responders, golf, and a good time.
Braden shared on socials yesterday with a series of photos, ”10 pictures won’t come close to showing you how much of a success our first annual Engine Co. 18 golf tournament was!! …Thank you to everyone that came out and helped support a great cause in National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and Hungry Heroes !! There are so many people to tag but for now I’ll stick with saying thank you from the bottom of my heart! Love you all!!”
The Slapout, Alabama native spent seven years as a firefighter and first responder, all the while working his way to Nashville. He remained in the service well after making the move to Music City, building his songwriting repertoire and even playing shows between shifts. The powerhouse vocalist and emotive lyricist has released several tracks as a major label recording artist, each to massive fan response.
The MusicRow Awards nominee for Discovery Artist of the Year‘s first Warner Music Nashville release, a powerful take on NEEDTOBREATHE’s “Brother” (listen HERE), paid tribute to his first responder family and all those fighting on the frontlines of the pandemic. The cover quickly racked up more than 2.5 MILLION views on YouTube. He then introduced his songwriting with “Love Is A Dead End Road” (listen HERE), praised for its “enormous feeling and just the right blend of power and ache” (MusicRow), followed by his solo penned, “Secret” (listen HERE), which has already racked up over 12 MILLION streams organically without radio airplay, showing just what Braden can do. He has since earned a massive fan response with “What Do They Know” (listen HERE), and most recently “Ways To Miss You” (listen HERE).
Braden is part of Brantley Gilbert’s THE WORST COUNTRY TOUR OF ALL TIME kicking off on Thursday, November 18 at Knoxville Civic Coliseum in Knoxville. More information on all of Braden’s tour dates can be found here.
ABOUT TYLER BRADEN If ever there was a Country artist ready to set the world on fire, it would have to be Tyler Braden. He has the gritty powerhouse vocal, the expressive pen and the ability to deliver a lyric with complete conviction worthy of a headliner. Braden grew up in Slapout, Alabama just miles from the graveyard memorial to Hank Williams. With parents who fostered an early appreciation for Country music, guitar-playing songwriters populating the airwaves and a group of rock-loving friends by his side, he spent much of his life blending natural influences to craft a sound of his own. His early twenties saw him playing local shows and touring the southeast while serving as a first responder in Montgomery. A gig in Music City inspired a move north, and Braden continued firefighting in the suburbs of Nashville while preparing to take his music career to the next level. His first date at the homegrown Whiskey Jam concert series in January 2017 paved his path to today. With more than 70 MILLION streams already to his name and a growing list of major tour credits, he introduced himself to world as a major label recording artist with his take on NEEDTOBREATHE hit “Brother.” Praised for his “commanding delivery” (MusicRow), Braden offered the song as a tribute to his first responder family and all those fighting on the frontlines during the pandemic. He has since earned massive fan response from original releases including “Love Is A Dead End Road,” “Secret,” “What Do They Know,” and most recently “Ways To Miss You.”
