NASHVILLE, TN (April 26, 2022) – With a passion for music and animals, TYLER RICH brings energy and empathic spirit to both. Last night (4/26) the California-raised, Nashville-rooted singer/songwriter led a round called WRITERS FOR RHINOS alongside ANDY ALBERT (Blake Shelton’s “She’s Got A Way With Words” + Dustin Lynch’s No. 1 “Good Girl”); CJ SOLAR (chart-toppers Morgan Wallen “Up Down” featuring Florida Georgia Line + Jameson Rodgers “Some Girls”); AIMP Nashville Songwriter Series class of 2019 EMILY FALVEY (Canadian No. 1 MacKenzie Porter’s “Seeing Other People” + upcoming cuts for Pitbull, Walker Hayes, Carly Pearce) and TRENT TOMLINSON (“Drunker Than Me,” “One Wing in the Fire,” “Just Might Have Her Radio On” + Brett Young’s No. 1 “In Case You Didn’t Know”). The esteemed tunesmiths sold out the annual event at The Listening Room in Nashville, which supports rhino conservation in partnership with the Nashville Chapter of the American Association of Zookeepers, Rich Rescues and Nashville Zoo Roar Corps.

“Now in our third year, we could not be more thrilled to have such a talented group of musicians lend their voices to help save an endangered species. WRITERS FOR RHINOS is such an important fundraising event for our mission to protect Rhinos for generations to come, and we want to express our sincere gratitude to Tyler, Andy, CJ, Emily, Trent and all who joined for this special event,” said ASHLEY COLLIER-MEDLEY, WRITERS FOR RHINOS Founder.
Tyler has commanded the charts with three No. 1 hits on SiriusXM’s The Highway and has amassed over 365 million global streams with his GOLD-certified single “The Difference,” TikTok earwarm “Better Than You’re Used To” and The Cadillac Three’s Jaren Johnston-produced “A Little Bit of You.” His music embodies the feelings all people have in common – the need for acceptance, devotion and a place to call their own. That compassionate outlook extends to animals too with an initiative he began while on tour to raise awareness for pet adoption called with Rich Rescues.
“I’ve never tried to save a Rhino, but I’m happy to be a part of it. They are kind of like Pitbull unicorns,” said Tyler jovially addressing the capacity room. “In all seriousness, the need to protect animals whether it be at your local shelter or more exotic species across the globe is real and a big reason I started Rich Rescues to advocate out on tour. Any time I can support this cause, I’m all in.”
