Kentucky-born songsmith Tyler Booth shares his new track, “Different Kind of Blue,” out now.
The track mourns a lost love, and preludes more new music to come from the singer this year, who has been working on a project targeted to release this autumn. Listen here.
“I wrote ‘Different Kind Of Blue’ with Rob Pennington and Forrest Finn, and it came from a place where I was feeling pretty sad and wanted to make something cool of it,” Booth said. “It’s about how no matter where you go, everything you see reminds you of somebody. Instead of it being a good feeling like comfort or being in love, it’s the total opposite.”
Earlier this year, Booth released “Bring On The Neon,” which MusicRow called “Superb. This instant-classic country weeper simmers in piano and steel while Booth’s always-awesome baritone delivers the emotional goods. Regret and heartache have seldom sounded better. I remain a fan.” Additionally, Booth added songs “Bring On The Neon” and “Real Real Country” to his repertoire this year. About the latter, Country Now shared that the singer is “taking his wicked twang and hard-hitting instrumentals to the next level,” and that the song “puts forth a stylish lick on his sundry capabilities,” while MusicRow deemed it “redneck rock, especially if you crank it up.”
Earlier this year Booth performed at C2C in the UK and returns to play The Long Road Festival on the 26th August, followed by his first UK Headline tour playing Manchester, London and Glasgow. For tickets please visit HERE.
Recently, Booth also shared stages with acts such as Darius Rucker, Jon Pardi, Brooks & Dunn, and Cody Johnson and he is set to open for Jake Owen’s “Loose Cannon Tour” this autumn in the US. The road warrior has gained a loyal fanbase through his extensive touring and is also backed by his over a million followers on social media. CMT described Booth as, “a country traditionalist with an impressive knack for storytelling” while American Songwriter called him, “an outlaw with the baritone voice, an endearing smile and a flowing mullet,” who “just might prove to be a breath of fresh country air in a world of far too perfectly coifed and filtered country superstars.”

About Tyler Booth:
Road warrior, songsmith, and proud Kentucky native Tyler Booth has been making a name for himself in country music since he first started playing festivals around his home state as a high schooler. Born and raised in Wolfe County, Kentucky, he grew up in a musical family, often sitting in on the rehearsals of his dad’s rock band.
After enrolling in Morehead State University’s Traditional Music Studies program, he quickly caught the attention of one of his professors, Scott Miller, an old friend of songwriter Phil O’Donnell (George Strait, Craig Morgan). After Miller made the connection, O’Donnell invited Booth to Nashville, where the two cut his first EP, Self-Titled, released independently in 2017.
A couple years later he was featured on legendary duo Brooks and Dunn’s country swing-style ballad, “Lost and Found” on their REBOOT album, and then in 2021 he released his own Grab the Reins EP.
Booth has recently toured across the country on his headlining “Real Real Country Tour,” and shared stages with artists such as Darius Rucker, Jon Pardi, Brooks and Dunn, and Cody Johnson. He’s set to open for Jake Owen’s “Loose Cannon Tour” this fall.
The entertainer has gained a loyal fanbase through his extensive touring and is also backed by his over 1.1M+ followers on social media. CMT described Booth as, “a country traditionalist with an impressive knack for storytelling” while American Songwriter deemed him, “An outlaw with the baritone voice, an endearing smile and a flowing mullet,” who “just might prove to be a breath of fresh country air in a world of far too perfectly coifed and filtered country superstars.”
Booth is currently in the studio working on new music set to be released this year.
