Warner Music Nashville’s resident country-rocker Tyler Braden is going viral for his commanding new anthem, “Devil You Know” (listen HERE). His original TikTok from January 13 earned more than two million views in just two weeks (watch HERE), and subsequent posts across social media have topped 11 million total views. The song’s fervor and fortitude have resonated with fans, who have already generated nearly 7,000 videos in response. “Devil You Know” was penned by Sam Martinez, Graham Barham, Zack Dyer and Jon Robert Hall.
“This is probably the proudest I’ve been to be part of a single, because it’s a song that so many people can get behind wholeheartedly,” Braden shared. “It’s a song about confidence and not backing down. It’s a song about not allowing yourself to be underestimated or taken for granted. It’s a song I’ll be proud to perform live for years to come. Thank you to the writers Jon, Zack, Graham and Sam – double thanks to Sam – for helping bring this song to life in a way that only progresses me as an artist. Thank you to the fans, new and old, for making ‘Devil I Know’ what it is before it even fully saw the light of day!”
“Devil You Know” follows standout track “Friends” (listen HERE), which is currently climbing the charts on SiriusXM The Highway. Billboard declared that “his dusty, acid-fueled rendering conveys all the sarcasm, pain and bewilderment of the song’s essence, further heightened by rock-propelled production.” Braden continues to carve his own lane in the country music industry, underscoring emotional lyrics with a plugged-in grit. His projects What Do They Know (listen HERE) and Neon Grave (listen HERE) have spurred more than 260 million global streams.
Earlier this month, the Alabama native announced that he would head out on his headlining Real Friends Tour 2024 (tickets HERE). Praised for his hard-rocking energy and gritty vocal, Braden played more than 100 dates last year alongside country superstars including Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley and Brooks & Dunn. Now he is amping up for 17 shows across the United States and back-to-back performances in Australia for the world-famous CMC Rocks QLD music festival.
