Country singer Tyler Childers has announced a followup to his 2017 breakthrough album Purgatory. It's called Country Squire and due August 2 via Hickman Holler Records/RCA. Like its predecessor, it was produced by Sturgill Simpson and David Ferguson, and Tyler made it with a band including Stuart Duncan (fiddle, mandolin, banjo), Miles Miller (drums, background vocals) and Russ Pahl (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, pedal steel, Jaw harp, baritone). The first single is "House Fire," which starts out as an intimate-sounding folk/country song but evolves into something more hard rockin'. Check it out below.

Tyler also announced several new tour dates. His schedule currently runs from this week through late December and includes shows with John Prine, Courtney Marie Andrews, and more.

Tyler's got two newly-added NYC shows happening December 14 & 15 at Brooklyn Steel. Tickets go on sale Thursday, May 23 at 10 AM with presales beforehand. All dates are listed below.

1. Country Squire
2. Bus Route
3. Creeker
4. Gemini
5. House Fire
6. Ever Lovin’ Hand
