Childers released his debut album, "Purgatory," produced by Sturgill Simpson and David Ferguson, to much acclaim last year.
Of the album, the Lawrence Country, Ky. native said, "I am extremely grateful for Miles Miller introducing me to Sturgill Simpson and also for Sturgill and David Ferguson taking the time to work with me. I think we both wanted to make an album for east Ky., and I reckon that's what we did. It's not about rock, or grass, or country...it's just hollerin' in the mountains and stirring shit up. The band Sturgill and David put together was an all-star cast and an honor to work with and learn from. I hope to do it again, but once is more than most are blessed with. For that I am thankful."
Childers is nominated for "Emerging Artist of the Year" at the 2018 Americana Music Association Honors & Awards and also made his Grand Ole Opry debut earlier this spring.

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Stapleton places trust in power of song
Chris Stapleton's unlikely mainstream country popularity has graduated the scruffy singer/songwriter from large theaters to the hockey stadiums, and one had to wonder how much this audience growth would affect his performing style. If tonight is any indicator, though, it hasn't changed much.
