Cookville, Tennessee-based singer-songwriter Tyler Edwards has recently released the debut single, “Highway Dust”, for his upcoming sophomore album, “A Falling Sky.” The folk song recounts a couple eloping from their small town and details the romantic nature of a spontaneous relationship. 

Edwards started his career in music in 2008 with his band in South Carolina called I Anthem. After the band ended their run in 2015, he moved to Seattle, Washington and released solo music, which included a few EPs, an LP, and a live album. Since then, he has been writing and producing folk music, garnering over 350,000 streams on Spotify. 

“Highway Dust” is a soft, but passionate acoustic love song; Edwards’s deep, country-esque voice adds a layer of earnestness and authenticity to the beautiful guitar. The romantic acoustic track is reminiscent of Jason Isbell and even indie’s Father John Misty; overall, it’s the perfect campfire song for your summer camping trips. 

So we can roll the windows down

Let our fears blow out

And the next time we come around

They’ll say they remembered us

Kicking up the highway dust
