Best Reason to Brave the Heat: Tyler Childers
The shade under That Tent provided little respite from the oppressive heat by midafternoon Saturday, when on-the-rise country songwriter Tyler Childers took the stage. But that didn't stop the 25-year-old Kentucky longhair from pouring himself into clock-stopping weepers like "Universal Sound," from his 2017 Sturgill Simpson-produced LP Purgatory. It didn't keep the crowd from clapping and hollering along to a spirited, beyond-Bonnaroo-appropriate romp through Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show's 1972 classic "I Got Stoned and I Missed It," either.
