Raised in Mobile Alabama, Tyler Braden has quickly proven himself a dark horse in the country music scene.

Adding a powerful rock voice, mixed with powerful lyrics, while still incorporating a southern drawl, Tyler Braden is poised to take the music world by storm.

While performing locally, Braden found a calling serving the community as a first responder with the local fire department.

When moving to Nashville he knew he needed work so he transferred to the Brentwood Fire Department, while performing shows in Nashville.

It was there he gained recognition from local management. While waiting to perform one night he wrote Little Red Wine, which would gain recognition of a manager, and eventually a record label.

Tyler Braden is currently touring around the country opening for Granger Smith, and performing at major country festivals.
