NASHVILLE, TN (May 19, 2023) – Chart-topping singer/songwriter TYLER RICH revisits some of his biggest songs to date with reimagined versions of fan favorite tracks on his new EP UNPLUGGED IN NASHVILLE. Produced by Tyler alongside Oscar-nominated and GRAMMY®-winning producer Julian Raymond, the 5-track collection is available today via The Valory Music Co. Listen Here: https://TylerRich.lnk.to/Unplugged.

“I love when artists release alternate versions of the songs you know and love,” said Tyler. “I revisited some of my fans’ favorite songs of mine and unplugged everything about them … starting from scratch. It was such a creative and fulfilling process giving all these songs a new identity for this project and I can’t wait for everyone to dive in and find out why!”

Amassing nearly half a billion career streams to date, Tyler sprinkles new magic across his three SiriusXM’s The Highway No. 1s including GOLD-certified “The Difference,” “Leave Her Wild” and “Better Than You’re Used To,” plus the title track to his recent EP, I KNOW YOU DO. Also highlighted is the namesake of Tyler’s 2022 headline tour “Thinkin’ We’re in Love,” enlisting rising singer/songwriter Alexandra Kay for the stateside duet of his Top 5 Canadian hit featuring one of Canada’s most successful bilingual singer-songwriters, Marie-Mai. 

“‘Thinkin’ We’re In Love’ was such a huge song for me in Canada with Marie-Mae so I knew I wanted to dive into a stateside version with a duet partner in Nashville,” adds Tyler. “My fans on TikTok were relentless about Alexandra Kay and they weren’t wrong! We turned a driving Pop Country production, into a sweet and poetic rendition that I can’t wait for you to hear.”

UNPLUGGED IN NASHVILLE EP marks Tyler’s second project this year, following his I KNOW YOU DO EPproduced by The Cadillac Three’s Jaren Johnston.

Up next, Tyler gears up for multiple appearances for the 50th CMA Fest in Music City kicking off on June 8 with a free headline show for the 27 Live Music Series at the Westin Nashville followed by a set at the Chevy Vibes Stage on June 11.
