Filmore x Oak & Eden Whiskey

Words By Brad Neathery

Rising Nashville country music singer-songwriter, Tyler Filmore, better known as ‘Filmore’ is anything but typical when it comes to fashion, sound, and career building. The Nashville musician was born in Wildwood, Missouri, where suburbia touches cornfields. He quickly developed a passionate grassroots following after debuting his single, ‘Slower’ in 2018. Since then, he has taken a “yes” approach to his career, accepting every performance opportunity that came his way, which ultimately led him to performing alongside Sam Hunt, Russell Dickerson, Brett Young, Carrie Underwood, Jon Pardi, and Dan + Shay, as well as performing at venues like Grand Ole Opry, Watershed, CMA Fest, Stagecoach, Country Thunder USA, SXSW, and Faster Horses.

Growing up in Wildwood forced him into a life full of diverse activities, from building forts in the woods to performing in musicals, which influenced his decision to pursue music as his final passion. At the helm of that decision, he made the move to Nashville, where he would find his true, distinctive sound. He recalls moving to Nashville solely because it was the closest place to Missouri that he could afford to drive to and make music. On his relocation journey to Nashville, he performed at every coffee house and venue that would take him, which launched his career into touring, and eventually writing and performing on Broadway.  

Alongside a very loyal fanbase, Tyler has built an incredibly loyal team of musicians who have performed together since the very beginning. They have built traditions and routines that make for a very healthy band of brothers. From gathering to pray before shows to, vocal checks, to toasting over a glass of whiskey before shows, the rhythm of their routine has instigated a posture of respect and admiration for one another, making for a one-of-a-kind experience at every performance.

Tyler has always considered himself a coffee connoisseur and appreciates a fine, craft coffee. He has also been a long-time bourbon enthusiast and enjoys a strong bourbon whether at performances or sitting on the porch at his house. We collaborated with Filmore to create a barrel strength bourbon finished with an American Oak spire steeped in cold brew coffee. It is a truly remarkable, bold, rich bourbon that is truly anything but typical.
