Country singer shines light on the sacrifices of chasing dreams
Kentucky-born songsmith Tyler Booth has shared “Bring On The Neon” via Sony Music Nashville. The track was penned by Booth along with Jamey Johnson and Jeremy Popoff, known from the band Lit (“My Own Worst Enemy”). Booth met Popoff after he was sitting in the audience one day while Booth was performing at Fox & Locke in Leiper’s Fork, TN. Popoff decided to introduce Booth to his good friend, Jamey Johnson, who also happens to be one of Booth’s biggest inspirations. Shortly after, the three came together and wrote “Bring On The Neon.”
“It’s sort of a full circle song for me because it’s about chasing your dreams,” Booth shares of the track. “Growing up, Jamey probably influenced me more than anyone. Listening to his music took me down the path of Waylon, Willie, Cash, Hank, etc., so writing with Jamey and getting to know him and Popoff really is a dream come true.”
He continues, “‘Bring On The Neon’ is a story about how hard the road is out here and it sure takes its toll on ya, especially your personal relationships. It’s about when one chapter ends, a new one begins, and the sacrifices we make chasing our dreams. Personally, this thing sure hasn’t been overnight for me. I’ve been busting my tail out here. Writing this one with Jamey and Popoff and getting to put it out is a reminder that hard work pays off. I look forward to hearing what people think about the song and what it means to them.”
“Tyler Booth has the kind of voice that resonates country music and feeds the soul,” Johnson adds. “He is an instrument custom crafted for that purpose. As a songwriter he is as astute and percipient as he is humble; a real working man’s torch bearer.”
“Bring On The Neon” follows Booth’s latest track, “Real Real Country,” which he debuted earlier this year. Recently, Booth shared stages with acts such as Darius Rucker, Jon Pardi, and Brooks & Dunn, and he is currently out on his headlining Real Real Country Tour as well as select dates with Cody Johnson.
