NEWCOMER MICHAEL TYLER NAMED
FEATURED ARTIST FOR BOTH
CMT’S “SUMMER OF MUSIC” AND “LISTEN UP”
Dierks Bentley’s No. 1 Platinum-selling smash “Somewhere On a Beach”, Jason Aldean’s “Laid
Back” and “First Time Again” (featuring Kelsea Ballerini) and three songs from the LOCASH’s album
The Fighters, all have one thing in common – all are songs
co-written by Reviver Records newcomer Michael Tyler (MT).  A songwriter
since the age of 13, MT has always dreamed of coming to Nashville to do
what he loves most… making music.  And his future
looks bright.
Since the release of his debut album
317, Tyler has been named to several of Country Music’s “Artists
To Watch” lists.  This month, MT will be featured as part of CMT’s
prestigious “Summer of Music” and “LISTEN UP” campaigns reserved for the
formats best and brightest.
 
“Music
is all about community for me and CMT has made me feel like a part of
their community,” said MT. “I can’t think of anything that I’d rather be
doing than
making music – whether writing, recording or touring –  I’m so
fortunate to be able to do what I love.”
“Michael
is one of country music’s most talented new artists,” said Leslie Fram,
SVP Music & Talent for CMT.  “He’s a brilliant performer, whose
songwriting has
already attracted some of the biggest and best artists in our format
and we’re proud to have him as part of the CMT Network family.” 
Featured
as one of CMT’s “17 of 2017” LISTEN UP Campaign, MT now has the full
force of CMT’s platforms through which to connect to passionate music
fans who look
to the network for a deeper look at the developing careers of artists
like MT. 

His performance of “They Can’t See” and an exclusive interview from the CMT Summer of Music Experience are live through July 3rd at
summer.cmt.com.
MT’s
passion for music began at the age of eight.  It was only the
beginning.  By age 11 he was singing and playing guitar and at 13
he met award-winning producer Michael Knox (Kelly Clarkson, Jason
Aldean, Luke Bryan, Eric Church) and a mentor/student relationship was
formed.  Since then MT has co-written Dierks Bentley’s #1 song
(“Somewhere On A Beach”) and penned music for Jason Aldean
(“Laid Back” and “First Time Again”) and several songs for LOCASH
(“Shipwrecked,” “Ain’t Startin Tonight” and “Moonwalkin’”). 
MT stepped out on March 17th, with his debut album
317.  He was named one of 2017’s Top 10 Artists You Need To Know
by Rolling Stone and is a SESAC Song of The Year Award Winner.  His
current single “They Can’t See” debuted upon the album’s release.  MT is
currently out on the road with concerts throughout
July including in Milwaukee, Chicago, Columbus (with Jon Pardi),
Peoria, Sioux City (with Billy Currington) and more.
