This country boy from Cameron describes his musical style as a mix of Alan Jackson and Toby Keith, and a dash of Kanye West. That might sound weird, but it was good enough to allow him to open early 2000s-era rock band Saliva.
“Sometimes I catch myself questioning if I am meant to do this because there are so many people out trying to do what I’m doing,” Tyler Godfrey says. “But then I think of where I started, and where I am now. That’s my drive to keep going.”
Although he’s traveled all over North Carolina sharing his music, he said he loves returning to Moore Country to perform at Drum & Quill in Pinehurst.
“It’s a small venue,” he says, “but I always have the best time performing there.”
Godfrey traveled on tour with the Nashville country band, Outshyne, selling merchandise, playing his guitar and writing music. The band’s song “Moonlight Crush” reached number 1 on Sirius XM while Godfrey was touring with the band. He said that’s when he found himself discovering his love for music.
“I’m able to do what I love,” Godfrey said. “I’m happy. I can pay my bills. I don’t know what else a human being could want.”
