And everybody but me can see the punchline coming
A mile away”
It’s almost ironic that Tyler Farr’s new single, “A Guy Walks Into a Bar,” starts out with the above lines, considering the fact that the song goes in an absolutely different direction than the title would suggest.
Tyler Farr’s voice never seems to be consistent through any of his songs. You’d never know “Redneck Crazy” “Whiskey in My Water” and “A Guy Walks Into a Bar” are by the same singer just by the voice. But this is a Tyler Farr I’d potentially like to hear more from. The song isn’t creepy like “Redneck Crazy,” and doesn’t have overdone clichés about dirt roads and riding in a truck like “Whiskey in My Water.”
“A guy walks into a bar
Orders a drink, sees a girl that catches his eye
Asks her if she wants another, they fall for each other and end up lover
They laugh, cry, hold on tight and make it work for a little while
Then one night her taillights fade out into the dark
And a guy walks into a bar”
Farr is still very early in his career and has an opportunity to distance himself from some of his previous mistakes (believe me, his Redneck Crazy album had more clichés than could be counted, with only one or two real solid offerings on the entire collection). This song shows growth as an artist and if his second album has more songs with a sound like this, he might have an opportunity to become more than just the flavor of the week.
