The Darrell Webb Band has announced the addition of Tyler Collins on reso-guitar.
Tyler is already an experienced bluegrass pro at the age of 25. As a pre-teen, we was playing music with Sierra and Cody Hull, and was filling in with Sierra’s band, Highway 111, before he was old enough to drive. Stints followed with Grand Ole Opry star Jesse McReynolds and Darin & Brooke Aldridge, Jesse Gregory & Faultline, Carrie Hassler and others.
He joins Jared Hensley on guitar, Cody Hill on banjo, Kameron Keller on bass, and Darrell on mandolin in The Darrell Webb Band. They are currently in the studio at Mountain Fever Records working on their next project, to be called Lovers Leap, with the title taken from a new song Darrell wrote with his wife, Amanda.
Collins reports having a blast with his new bandmates.
“I’m loving it! I’ve known Kam and Jared for years. They’re like brothers to me so it’s great to be in a band with them. And Darrell Webb is just a beast. He’s been one of my heroes since I was a little feller so it’s really cool to be pickin with him and the other guys everyday!”
And Darrell returns the favor.
“Words can’t describe how excited I am to have Tyler Collins in joining the DWB. I think we have the strongest band we have ever had. Playing with these guys is such a incredible honor. Welcome aboard! I’m looking forward to bigger and better things down the road for DWB!”
The Darrell Webb Band plays regularly at the Old Smoky Moonshine Distillery in Gatlinburg, TN. You can visit them online for more details on their performance schedule.
