You can help singer-songwriter Tyler Barham make “History” with his newest EP, which charted at No. 7 on the iTunes Country Album Chart on May 19, 2017.
Madison, North Carolina, native John Griffin is a Nashville-based singer-songwriter, who was a co-writer on three of the EPs songs: “History,” “Outrun the Radio” and “Don’t Need to Know.”

I happened to run into Griffin on Saturday while he was performing solo at The Mad Bean in Madison. Barham, whom I have had the pleasure of hearing perform here in North Carolina, was in his home state of Montana for an album release party, according to Griffin.
 “Dave Flint, who produced Tyler’s new project, is my production partner and we have an indie record label called YN Records, which we released the project under,” Griffin explained.  “The EP is available everywhere people download or stream music.”
You can help Griffin and Barham make musical history by purchasing the EP from iTunes or Google Play by Thursday to help boost it up the Billboard chart.
Following is a press release about Barham’s latest release:

Fresh from his appearance at last month’s American Country Music Awards as a guest correspondent for T-Mobile, Billboard charting country artist Tyler Barham gears up for the release of his fourth EP, History, which will be available Friday, May 19, 2017 at all
online retailers.

“I’m so excited to release new music,” says Tyler. “These are songs I’ve been playing at shows for a while, and the ones people seem to request the most. I’m already getting tweets and Facebook messages from fans who love the two tracks they get when they pre-order.”

The six-song EP can be pre-ordered on iTunes and has an official release date of Friday, May 19. Produced by David Flint, the songs, all co-written by Tyler, incorporate
meaningful lyrics, catchy melodies and powerful vocal delivery. While in the studio recording the title track, History, Tyler knew the song would be a perfect duet if he could find the right artist. A few phone calls later, Pop YouTube artist Megan Davies was in the studio laying down vocals for the second verse. Megan, a YouTube superstar, has over 1.1 million YouTube subscribers, 2 million monthly Spotify listeners and over 122 million Spotify streams.

One of Billboard’s Country Artists to Watch, Barham has built a foundation of more than 70,000 dedicated online fans with over 9.5 million YouTube views. He currently has over 1 million streams on Spotify and has over 20K monthly listeners.

What started as covering songs of his favorite country artists and posting them to YouTube when he was just 17 years old, has now taken him to the next level in his career. Last month Tyler was tapped to be an ACM Awards correspondent for T-Mobile, filming a T-Mobile Arena “Unlimited” access piece for the ACM’s Red Carpet Twitter pre-show in Las Vegas.

He has been named one of Billboard’s Country Artists to Watch and his previous released album debuted at No. 19 on the Billboard Heatseeker Album Chart for all genres. He was a finalist on Great American Country’s nationwide talent search, Next GAC Star.  He was also featured on E!’s Opening Act (created by American Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe), was the winner of nationally syndicated radio host Radio Lia’s Your Big Break contest, and a was a Top 5 finalist in the 6-month nationwide talent search, Nash Next.

His previously released song, Just Two Kids, charted at #46 on the Music Row Chart and spent several weeks on the “New and Active” Billboard Indicator Chart. More Than A Cotton Dress was a SiriusXM On the Horizon pick and is currently being played in Walmart stores all across the country.
