Tyler Childers adds a bluegrass touch to John Anderson’s “Shoot Low Sheriff”! For the tribute album

Tyler Childer is back.

Okay, that’s a bit of a stretch, as the Eastern Kentucky native is still, for the most part, enjoying the time off the road. With the exception of a few shows here and there, a few festivals and an upcoming two-fer from Red Rocks, the man has largely been in the spotlight in anticipation of the arrival of his firstborn.

But, during his shows this year, we’ve heard a ton of new stuff, and quite a few covers are making their way into the regular rotation.

We’ve seen the man put together fantastic covers in the past, from SG Goodman’s “Space And Time,” to Pink Floyd “Time,” by Kris Kristofferson “Help me get through the night,” Hank Williams’ “The Church of the Old Country” and much more.

That being said, I think he could beat them all with that unique bluegrass twist on “Shoot Low Sheriff!” for John Anderson’s tribute album, Something borrowed, something new: a tribute to John Anderson.

The song itself is a cover of Anderson’s self-titled 1980 debut studio album.

Now, there’s one thing for sure about Childers, and that’s that he can take a cover and practically turn the song into his own unique version, all while paying homage to the legend who sang the song back in the day. origin, and that’s exactly what we get here, as he slowed down and added a beautiful violin.
