Tyler Childers’ Iconic ‘Purgatory’ Album Turns 5-Years-Old Today

It’s amazing to see a country artist who is completely independent become so popular Tyler Childers.

You can ask anyone from a coal miner in eastern Kentucky to a lad or sorority girl in your nearest college town, and there’s a very good chance any of them can say they’ve heard of Tyler Childers at least once.

The man sells big venues wherever he goes, including back-to-back nights at the world-class Red Rocks Amphitheater, not to mention he has four platinum singles, including a minor number entitled “Feathered Indians,” which went double.

And to top it off, a gold album Purgatory, published on this date in 2017.

Gosh, has it been five years already?

Many would rank it as the best album he has released to date, and at any given point in time it still hovers around the top 10 on the iTunes Country Albums chart.

From the screaming “GOT DAMN, FIRE IN THE HOLE” on “I Swear (To God)” to the iconic “Feathered Indians”, one of the baddest country songs of all time on “Whitehouse Road”, to the romantic “Lady May” , each song evokes a different emotion and perfectly depicts the lifestyle of coming of age in modern Appalachia.

Produced by Sturgill Simpson and David R. Ferguson, the album played a big role in Childers becoming a household name for fans of all genres of music, including; purgatory reached number one in the US billboard 200, nearing the top 10 at number 11 on the US Top Country Albums chart (which says a lot about the state of country music at the time), number four on the US Folk Albums chart and number three on the US Independent -Album Chats .

And now? All we can do is wait for old Tyler to drop a new project (whenever that may be).
