West Virginia singer Tyler Childers makes his first appearance on Mountain Stage, recorded live at Charleston, W.Va.'s Culture Center Theater. Over the years, Childers has amassed a loyal (and, as you'll hear in this set, vocal) fan base in Appalachia, and it's no wonder: With a voice like a young Eric Church and songwriting that'd make Jason Isbell proud, Tyler Childers' heartfelt Americana is at home in the hills and hollers.

Childers is joined by his band, The Food Stamps (classically trained violinist Molly Page and Huntington, W.Va.'s Rod Elkins on drums, Craig Burletic on upright bass and James Barker on guitar), for a few songs before they leave him to his acoustic, heart-wrenchingly beautiful devices for "Follow You To Virgie" and "Lady May."


  • "Feathered Indian"
  • "Shake The Frost"
  • "Goin' Home"
  • "Whitehouse Road"
  • "Follow You To Virgie"
  • "Lady May"
