Warner Music Nashville standout Tyler Braden, celebrated for his hard-rocking, high-energy stage shows, is packing all of the punch of his live performances into his new EP, Neon Grave, out now. Braden had a hand in penning all six cuts, including one solo credit, with Randy Montana serving as producer.
“I’m really proud of this EP, because I think each song has so much emotional value in its own way,” shared Braden. “There are different ups and downs and different moments of relatability. Emotional doesn’t just mean sad, either. I wanted people to feel what I felt when writing these songs and, if that can happen, it’ll be a roller coaster and a success.”
He added: “I’m most excited to see which songs people gravitate toward. It teaches me about my fan base and what side of me they lean towards as an artist, which allows me to lean right back and build a deeper connection.”
Braden has carved his own lane in the country music industry, underscoring emotional lyrics with a plugged-in grit. The fast-rising singer / songwriter has already accumulated nearly 200 million global streams. His current single “Try Losing One” has already hit No. 1 on SiriusXM The Highway’s Hot 30 Countdown and continues to climb at country radio. MusicRow declared that the country-rock ballad “burns with ferocious power and passion” and stated simply, “In a word, wow.” Meanwhile, Billboard lauded “Try Losing One” as “one of the most moving vocal deliveries in country music right now.”
The road warrior recently wrapped Mitchell Tenpenny’s This Is The Heavy Tour, which included two dates at Nashville’s own Ryman Auditorium. Braden is headed overseas next week for C2C: Country To Country Festival (March 10-12), where he will also join the CMA Songwriters Series in London on 9th March. This summer, he will join Luke Bryan for select dates of his Country On Tour.
