Reviver Records Newcomer and No. 1 Songwriter Co-Wrote Dierks Bentley’s Multi-Week Platinum-Selling Smash
 

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 31, 2016)
– Performing rights organization SESAC awarded Song of the Year to hot
country newcomer Michael Tyler during its Nashville Music Awards for the
Dierks Bentley smash “Somewhere on a Beach.” Bentley presented the
award to Michael Tyler, who co-penned the multi-week No. 1
platinum-selling hit.

“This is awesome and I’m so thankful for this honor! Wow, I can’t
believe this has all happened in the last year. I’m so blessed that
Dierks decided to record the song and then release it as a single,”
Michael Tyler said. MT co-wrote “Somewhere on a Beach” with Jaron Boyer,
Alexander Palmer, Dave Kuncio and Josh Mirenda.

The Reviver Records recording artist’s debut single “Crazy Last Night”, which world-premiered on CMT, was selected as Billboard’s Country Songs of the Summer Picks.

MT is on the road with Mercury Nashville’s Canaan Smith for the
Sundown Ready Tour and will join Reviver Records labelmates LOCASH for
Live Nation’s ‘Ones To Watch’ Tour. Fans can purchase tickets at themichaeltyler.com.

MT also penned Jason Aldean’s “Laid Back” on the platinum-selling album Old Boots New Dirt, three songs on the LOCASH album The Fighters
(“Shipwrecked,” “Ain’t Startin Tonight,” and “Moonwalkin”) and a Jason
Aldean/Kelsea Ballerini duet “First Time Again” on Aldean’s No. 1 album They Don’t Know.

Hailing from Thayer, Missouri, known as a railroad town, it’s ironic
MT is the descendant of the late, great Jimmie Rodgers, known as “The
Father of Country Music” who learned his craft around the New Orleans
and Northeastern Railroad. At the age of 13, over a Myspace meeting, MT
met award-winning producer Michael Knox (Jason Aldean/Thomas Rhett/Kelly
Clarkson/Trace Adkins). After a few years of sending songs and ideas
back and forth, MT came to Nashville, Tenn. to play a show at Tootsies
Orchid Lounge for their first face-to-face meeting. At that time, Knox
was hired by peermusic Nashville to help restructure the creative
department. After watching MT play a few shows, Knox felt it was time
for him to make the move to Nashville as a peermusic songwriter. The
future has just started for this young singer/songwriter who is on the
road touring all over the country with his energetic live show.
