Tyler Childers and His Band To Go On Tour After Releasing Three-Part Album ‘Can I Bring My Hounds to Heaven?’

This new album is the first new music fans have received from Tyler Childers since 2020. He released Long Violent History then. He came back with a triumphant bang, to say the least, with a three-part album featuring 8 songs, all with different sonic elements. Each version of the album–titled Hallelujah, Jubilee, and Joyful Noise–creates a unique listening experience.

Tyler Childers and The Food Stamps recorded the album in guitarist James Barker’s home studio. The Hallelujah version is more or less a live recording in a single room. The Jubilee version adds various instrumentals like strings, horns, and even a sitar. The Joyful Noise version is probably the most unique. It features remixes by DJ Charlie Brown Superstar, and also samples bits from “The Andy Griffith Show,” theologist Thomas Merton, and comedian Jerry Clower. Additionally, there are also elements of church services from the Kentucky Center for Traditional Music archives.

Childers and his band clearly put a lot of creative thought and passion behind the project. It will be interesting to see what versions of what songs they’re going to play on the road.

In addition to his tour, Tyler Childers will also be kicking off the inaugural Two Step Inn Festival in Georgetown, TX. The festival takes place at San Gabriel Park on April 15th and 16th, and Childers will headline with Zach Bryan.
