From sold-out headline shows across the West Coast to being named a CMT Listen Up artist, Tyler has proven his powerful stage presence. Rolling Stone notes how he “is rising quickly through country’s mainstream ranks, unafraid to fill his music with R&B vocal runs and modern-rock aggression.” He has come a long way from his previous gig at Red Robin to opening up for stars such as Dustin Lynch, Sam Hunt, Justin Moore, Brett Eldredge, Cole Swindell and Dan + Shay. And while his fanbase has grown exponentially outside of his native California, hometown pride remains with Yuba City declaring August 18 as Tyler Rich Day and presenting him with keys to the city.
