Tyler Farr Celebrates First No. 1, Biggest Debut for New Male Country Artist This Year
Tyler Farr’s debut album ‘Redneck Crazy‘ is obviously a big hit with country music fans — they went a little crazy for it, making it the biggest debut for a new male country artist in 2013. Plus, the title track is the rising star’s first No. 1 single on country music radio.
Farr’s debut album had an impressive launch, hitting No. 2 on the Country Albums Chart and No. 5 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart, with first-week sales of 29,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It also tied in ranking for the highest ranking debut on the Billboard Country chart by a new male artist this year and marks the highest debut by a debut male country artist on the all-genre Billboard 200 album sales chart.
Farr expressed his shere gratitude at such an overwhelming response to his first studio album on Twitter:

Whew. The singer has seen much success ever since his title track nearly went Platinum, and he’s not slowing down — not even for a second. Fans can find him on Florida Georgia Line‘s headlining tour, alongside Lee Brice on select dates.
