About Jeff Danker: Jeff is co-owner and manager of BVO Productions. He started BuckVentures in 2003 with the motto “Shoot by Sight, Walk by Faith” based off of 2 Corinthians 5:7 and has been hosting hunting shows ever since. Jeff spent time as a professional team roper before starting his career in television. In addition to hunting for a living, Jeff speaks about his faith in church’s all across the country.
About Tyler Farr: Authentic and unapologetic, Tyler Farr records songs he would listen to in his truck – windows down, sound up. It just so happens country music fans want to hear the same songs. Without pandering or compromise, Farr’s powerhouse vocals, real-guy relatability, and willingness to mine emotional themes and personal imperfection resonates with people searching to find themselves in the music that underscores their daily routines and future dreams. With three No. 1 songs (“Redneck Crazy,” “Whiskey in My Water,” and “A Guy Walks Into a Bar”) and a growing string of hits, they found it in Farr. And like a weathered truck with rusty tail pipes, it can get a little loud and gritty. His current single “Only Truck In Town” – dubbed a “country boy’s love song” by Taste of Country – taps familiar topics without feeling tired or contrived. Online media outlet Sounds Like Nashville reports “Hitmaker Tyler Farr returns to country radio with a truck song of a different stripe…dropping into low gear with the slow-and-steady romance of ‘Only Truck In Town.’” Taste of Country put it, “The joy of the song is that it borrows a few bro-ish themes, but bends them enough to create something quite sincere and generous.”
