Reviver Records singer-songwriter Michael Tyler is garnering significant buzz, as a co-writer on Dierks Bentley’s latest hit single “Somewhere on a Beach,” which just topped the Billboard Hot Country Song chart. The perfect country summertime anthem is the lead single from his eighth studio album,Black, due out on May 27. After remaining on Billboard Hot Country Song chart for 13 weeks, the single arose to the top of the Billboard chart ranking and reached No. 1 status the week of April 30.
As Tyler’s first No. 1 songwriting credit, “Somewhere on a Beach” proves that the Reviver Records signee is quickly climbing the ranks of sought-after songwriting talent in Country Music. “Michael is a hugely talented young songwriter,” said Reviver Records President David Ross. “Since signing with Reviver Records, we’ve mentioned time and again that the industry would quickly find out about Michael’s talents as both a writer and musician, and it looks as though it’s already happening!”
Tyler, a descendant of “The Father of Country Music,” Jimmie Rodgers, is a singer-songwriter/musician hailing from Thayer, Missouri. Since moving to Nashville, he has had a hand in writing “Shipwrecked” and “Ain’t Startin’ Tonight” for Reviver Records label mates LOCASH. He also co-wrote “Laid Back” from Jason Aldean’s million-selling Old Boots, New Dirt album.
