Sad news Tyler Farr fans – your man will undergo microlaryngeal surgery tomorrow to remove a polyp on his vocal chords, and will be put on strict vocal rest. Tyler first began experiencing problems on tour with Jason Aldean this summer, and was diagnosed after coming down with bronchitis at the end of last year.
“This is the last thing I would’ve ever expected,” Farr said. “I sing hard, and I give it everything I have every night, but I really believed I was putting my training to work. After a #1 song, an awesome tour with Jason and getting engaged, this is not how I thought I was going to be winding up 2015.”
The vocal rest means Tyler has had to pull out of all scheduled performances for the next few months, including the upcoming “Life of My Years” tour with Lee Brice. Instead, Maddie & Tae, Clare Dunn and Jerrod Niemann will fill in on select dates.
