NASHVILLE, TN (August 12, 2022) – TYLER RICH may paint the picture of a 4×4, but the backroads, lift kits and shimming-over-next-to-me sentiments are nowhere in sight on his new track. He changes course on the typical song about a certain automobile with “Trucks Don’t Lie,” out today via The Valory Music Co. Watch the lyric video here: https://TylerRich.lnk.to/Trucks_LyricPR.
“A truck can tell you a thousand stories. It can tell you someone’s favorite teams. The color and build can tell you about their personality. Memories within a truck can tell you over and over again when someone is gone … and so much more,” says Tyler. “’Trucks Don’t Lie’ has some angst, a lot of heart and some heartbreak, all greased up together.”
The Northern California-raised, Nashville-rooted singer/songwriter doesn’t shy away from matters of the heart, often finding inspiration in his wife Sabina Gadecki even as they maintained a bi-coastal courtship for several years. With his latest catchy yet crushing release, pain reverberates in his voice as Tyler sings lyrics penned alongside Adam Craig and Jim McCormick:
Rides like heaven but it hurts like hell
Gets me from A to B
But it can’t outrun your memory
Like every mile in it reminds me
Your goodbye ain’t too far behind me
Wish I could bend the truth
Pretend that I ain’t missin’ you
But trucks don’t lie
Like the new one in your drive
“I’ve been performing this one on the road since last year, and it’s been a fan favorite. Watching the crowd react every night, and even sing along because of teasers, has been one of the highlights of each show from my perspective. Turn this one up!” says Tyler.
Reuniting in the studio with Jaren Johnston of The Cadillac Three, who also produced and co-wrote “A Little Bit of You,” the pair have found a fresh groove Tyler can amplify out on his headline run this Fall. Naming the tour after his “Thinkin’ We’re In Love” English + French collaborations with one of Canada’s most successful bilingual singer-songwriters, Marie-Mai, it’s clear Tyler’s drive is anything but parked.
