Tyler Childers' tour in support of this year's Grammy-nominated Country Squire hit NYC over the weekend with two sold-out shows at Brooklyn Steel. We caught the first night (12/14) where, without a written setlist, Tyler and his five-piece band pulled from all of his albums and did a few covers too. As he's been doing at the end of the night on stops along this tour, Tyler teased the audience with an elongated intro of "if you were to ask me my absolute all time, hands down...of all time favorite favorite..." -- long pause -- "Miley Cyrus song it would be this," before launching into about four seconds of "Wrecking Ball" and then stopping, saying that's all he knows of it and then playing Charlie Daniels Band's "Trudy."

Nathan Xander opened on Saturday, filling in for Liz Cooper and The Stampede who had to cancel as Liz was sick. Pictures from the night are in the gallery above and a few videos from Brooklyn Steel are below, including a Sunday performance of "Trudy" (minus the Miley intro).

Tyler will be on tour with Sturgill Simpson (who produced Country Squire) in 2020 and they'll play Madison Square Garden on May 16 (tickets).
