Brett Tyler is a bonafide hitmaker. Having punched his way into the Top 15 for his work with Blake Shelton (“Hell Right” feat. Trace Adkins) and landing his first number one record for his efforts with Luke Combs and Jameson Rodgers (“Cold Beer Calling My Name”), Tyler’s resume speaks for itself. “I’m not a one-lane kinda writer,” explains the AIMP Rising Songwriter Of The Year nominee, “That’s one of the things I pride myself on.” Press opinion backs this wholeheartedly, praising his efforts as everything from “uptempo and catchy” (Digital Journal) to “rowdy [and] chest puffing” (Rolling Stone). Tyler’s introduction to the world of country came at a young age, when he was growing up in Minnesota, just outside the twin cities. “I listened to country music via my family,” he recalls, “though in middle and high school I went through a phase where I thought it wasn’t cool. As much as I love country now, I’m grateful for that time when I dug around in other genres.” Broadening his horizons made Brett a well-rounded writer, so when he started making trips to Nashville, he brought fresh perspective to his co-writes. Demand for him swiftly made a permanent move to Music City inevitable, and after two years of further honing his talents, he signed with Combustion in 2013. From Minnesota to Tennessee, this crafter of “feel-good, looking back summer jams” (Taste of Country) continues to prove his value to any songwriting team. When he’s not writing, Tyler is working as a producer, most recently taking the lead on a project with his wife, Show Dog Nashville/Thirty Tigers signee Kimberly Kelly.
