Country singer Tyler Childers is gearing up for the release of his sixth studio album, “Rustin’ in the Rain,” slated to hit the shelves on September 8 via Hickman Holler/RCA. Following his 2022 triple album “Can I Take My Hounds to Heaven?” recorded with his loyal band, the Food Stamps, Childers has unveiled the lead single, “In Your Love,” along with an emotionally charged music video directed by Bryan Schlam.

Speaking about his new album, Childers humorously revealed that he crafted it as if he were presenting a selection of songs to the iconic Elvis Presley. The album features a mix of covers, a co-write, and even tunes he playfully composed in his best (but admittedly terrible) Elvis impersonation while going about his daily life on the farm. Expressing his joy in creating the album, Childers hopes that listeners will derive as much pleasure from listening to it.

The accompanying music video for “In Your Love” boasts creative direction from Silas House, an esteemed New York Times bestselling author, Poet Laureate of Kentucky (Childers’ home state), and recipient of the prestigious 2022 Duggins Prize, the largest award for LGBTQ writers in the country. House, along with Jason Kyle Howard, crafted a poignant narrative that revolves around two men portrayed by Colton Haynes and James Scully, depicting their experiences as lovers in 1950s rural Appalachia.

House emphasized the significance of LGBTQ representation in the country music sphere, especially in rural settings, stating that such visibility matters greatly. He noted that LGBTQ individuals have always existed in rural areas, and the music video offers a much-needed portrayal of this reality within the country music genre. By paying meticulous attention to detail in capturing rural life authentically, House aimed to defy the stereotypes that have sometimes overshadowed depictions of country people. Drawing from their own family pictures as references, the creative team strived to present a rich and layered story within a four-minute frame, exploring the complexities of life for both rural and LGBTQ individuals.

As fans eagerly anticipate the release of “Rustin’ in the Rain,” Tyler Childers and the Food Stamps are currently on a captivating North American tour that will run through late September, allowing audiences to immerse themselves in the unique essence of their music.
