Tyler Rich

Local radio station WCOS continues their June Jam Party with country singer Tyler Rich. He has been putting out music since 2014. However, it was not until his self-titled EP that released in March that he started to gain traction. With the single, “The Difference,” he is making a name for himself. He only has two EPs and no full length album yet, but it could be coming soon because he dropped a new single in April.

Tenille Townes will open for Rich. She’s a new country singer who has only been on the scene since 2018 but she already has millions of listens on Spotify. 7 p.m. June 12, The Senate, 1022 Senate St. $8.
