Warner Music Nashville’s rising Country star Tyler Braden made his highly-anticipated Grand Ole Opry debut over the weekend on Saturday (1/8) bringing the crowd to their feet performing his popular tracks “Better Off” and “Try Losing One.”
After Braden wrapped the milestone performance, he said “There are so many dreams, so many goals, and so many firsts in this industry, but that one was it. That was the one. There’s nothing like standing in that circle, and just when I thought it was everything I possibly thought it could be, I got to look around and see everyone I love. There’s no way to say it without sounding cliché, but I’ll never forget that moment.”
According to Billboard, Braden has “one of the most moving vocal deliveries in country music right now,” and that has proved true as he’s featured on multiple 2022 Artists to Watch lists such Country Now, The Nash News, and Music Mayhem Magazine. The nods follow the November 2021 release of his debut EP WHAT DO THEY KNOW (WDTK). Listen here. Kicking the year off with his bucket list Opry debut sets the stage for a great year to come for Braden.
Braden recently wrapped touring with Brantley Gilbert on his THE WORST COUNTRY TOUR OF ALL TIME where he ventured coast-to-coast performing new music, that AL.com applauds as “full, saturated production that seems tailor-made for the big crowds.”
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, AL, with parents who fostered an early appreciation for Country music, guitar-playing songwriters filling the airwaves, and a group of rock-loving friends. His early twenties saw him playing local shows and touring the Southeast while serving as a first responder in Montgomery, AL, and then continued firefighting in the suburbs of Nashville while preparing to take his music career to the next level. With more than 85.5 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’s 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. To date, he’s earned massive fan response from original releases including “Love Is A Dead End Road,” “Secret,” “What Do They Know,” “Ways To Miss You,” and most recently “Try Losing One.” Braden’s Warner Music Nashville debut EP WHAT DO THEY KNOW (WDTK) is out now.
