10. Living With The Blues
This single from the Redneck Crazy album ‘Living with The Blues’ was released in 2013. This song will remind you of Travis Tritt and Hank Williams, Jr. Farr employs a whiskey-drenched performance in this particular ballad which is not far from the style embraced by these two artists. The song talks about the feeling of depression or sadness that comes with a breakup.
9. Our Town
Home sweet home is a subjective phrase. But, as we may conclude based on this 2016 single release, Farr is reminiscing his growing up in Garden City, Missouri. It’s clear that he still holds to the values of his childhood in this small town. The song was inspired by what Farr saw on the news during his recovery after undergoing a micro-laryngeal surgery. He wrote this track with the help of Seth Ennis, his Sony label mate. It peaked at number 53 on the U.S. Country Airplay chart.
8. Hot Mess
Co-written by country music song experts Dallas Davidson, Ben Haylip, and Rhett Akins is this first single from Farr’s Red Crazy album. The song was released in 2012.

This hit seems to have impressed Chuck Dauphin, a Billboard contributor who in 2017 ranked it number seven of Farr’s top ten best songs.
7. I Should Go To Church Sometimes
We often have to dig deeper to find ourselves. This 2017 release from Farr’s album, also titled ‘I should Go to Church Sometime,’ reflects personal choices and faith.

Penned by Tyler Farr, Houston Phillis, Wade Kirby, and Phil O’Donnel is the ‘I Don’t Even Want This Beer’ song from his second studio album, ‘suffer in peace.’ It talks about being sober, thinking about her rather than taking beer. Unlike most country music songs, this Farr’s single released in 2015 doesn’t glamorize alcohol; rather, it encourages sobriety even during heartbreaks.

Another heartbreaking song from the ‘Redneck Crazy’ is this 2013 release co-written with Skip Black and Kris Bergsnes. Farr’s ability to alter his vocals is well showcased in this ballad.

This great hit was composed by three professional songwriters, Hillary Lindsey, Josh Kear, and Gordie Sampson, and was released in June 2015.
