Tyler Childers, the (Beloved) Redheaded Stepson of the Huntington Music Scene


Ever since ‘A Change of Tune’ started, we’ve had a list of folks who we’ve wanted to talk #WVmusic (and pepperoni rolls) with. Last week, we had the pleasure of marking one of those names off our list when we chatted with the self-proclaimed “Redheaded Stepson of the Huntington Music Scene,” Americana rocker Tyler Childers.

Hear our conversation about his history with Huntington’s V Club, his band’s forthcoming debut on Mountain Stage and how his future might just involve chickens.


Tyler Childers & the Food Stamps will make their NPR Music debut on this Sunday’s Mountain Stage with Larry Groce in Charleston. To hear more #WVmusic, tune in to ‘A Change of Tune,’ airing Saturdays at 10pm EST on West Virginia Public Broadcasting.
