Tyler Childers‘ Sold-Out Performance at Pavilion at Star Lake

Tyler Childers

Tyler Childers, steadfast in his identity as a pure country artist, eschews labels like Americana or alt country. The Kentucky native’s distinct musical style, which defies modern commercial norms, has garnered acclaim despite limited radio airplay.

Childers recently demonstrated his concert drawing power at the Pavilion at Star Lake on a brisk Sunday evening, where he performed to a packed venue. Despite his radio hits being sparse, his appeal was evident as fans eagerly snapped up $70 hoodies from bustling merchandise stands.

Reflecting on his journey, Childers humorously contrasted his current success with his modest beginnings in Pittsburgh, recalling a humble acoustic set at the Hard Rock Cafe in Station Square back in 2017 for a nominal fee and a few drink tickets.

“There’s a few more people here than there were at the Hard Rock,” Childers remarked, surveying the enthusiastic crowd.

During the nearly two-hour set, Childers showcased his musical versatility, blending bluegrass, honky tonk, roots rock, and folk influences into his distinctive Kentucky/Appalachian style of country. Accompanied by his band, the Food Stamps, which includes Pittsburgh native Craig Burletic on bass sporting a Pittsburgh Pirates Paul Skenes jersey, Childers captivated the audience with a repertoire ranging from a spirited rendition of Kenny Rogers & the First Edition’s “Tulsa Turnaround” to the lively hoedown vibes of “Percheron Mules” and the melodic twang of “Gemini.”

The performance underscored Childers’ ability to connect deeply with his audience through authentic storytelling and a genuine passion for his craft.
