SOUTH DAKOTA TROUBADOUR TYLER HALVERSON
Atlantic Records Debut + Confessional New Song “Her” Available Now
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Canton, SD native Tyler Halverson amassed a loyal fanbase as an independent artist, his five song catalog reeling in over 20 million streams in less than two years, while garnering support from fellow artists Kylie Frey, Muscadine Bloodline and Parker McCollum, among others. His duet with Frey, “Your Bar Now,” caught the attention of legendary Nashville manager Erv Woolsey, who officially signed Halverson to his client roster.
“Tyler has a unique sound and perspective on storytelling that I really appreciate,” shares Owner Erv Woolsey. “I’m excited for what the future holds for this young man and the opportunity to work with him.”
“Tyler Halverson is a kind soul but a fierce Music Man,” adds Allen Mitchell, VP/new artist management. “His craft for songwriting and entertaining sets a standard that I’m fortunate to represent.”
Halverson most recently released “Her,” his major label debut on Atlantic Records, which also debuted as one of 20 country songs on the U.S. Spotify Velocity chart. Marked by dusty acoustic guitars, rustling harmonica and his own crooning vocals, the track’s comforting storytelling sets the stage for more new music due this summer.
Known for his different kind of cowboy tale with his self-described “Amerijuana Music,” bridging honest storytelling with songcraft inspired by country powerhouses Garth Brooks, George Strait and Hayes Carll, as much as Boyz II Men, Taking Back Sunday and The Used, Halverson recently toured with Muscadine Bloodline and will soon launch the first leg of a select amount of dates with Frey as part of their co-headlined, Your Bar Now tour. Later this year, Halverson will support McCollum on a string of arena dates.

About Tyler Halverson:
Born and raised in the tiny town of Canton, SD (pop. 3054), Tyler Halverson isn’t just any cowboy. He’s got the hat and the boots, but he also plays a mean guitar and writes an even meaner tune. He has no problem bouncing around the country chasing adventure (or a girl), and is telling his different kind of cowboy tale with his self-described “Amerijuana Music,” bridging honest storytelling with songcraft inspired by country powerhouses Garth Brooks, George Strait, and Hayes Carll as much as Boyz II Men, Taking Back Sunday, and The Used.
Halverson fell in thrall to music at an early age, receiving his first guitar while in middle school. A local bluegrass festival convinced him to focus on music, throwing down at 4H and FFA festivals before heading to Nashville to attend the prestigious Belmont University. Upon graduation, he decided to hit the road and spent an extended run traveling around South Dakota, Montana, and Wyoming, all the while writing and playing his songs on social media. Halverson’s original approach caught fire with a string of independent releases including “Beer Garden Baby,” “Mac Miller,” and “Your Bar Now” (with Kylie Frey), amassing tens of millions of streams. Now, with his Atlantic Records debut single “Her” and more to come, Tyler Halverson is eager to take the next step on what has already proven an amazing journey. “I’m finding myself,” says Halverson. “I feel like I’m an artist and I’m finally about to do something.”
