Along with writing every day, Tyler Steel is also pounding the pavement, driving from town-to-town and living the entertainer’s adage “shake one hand, make a fan.” His family is always nearby – his dad is both his tour manager and his bus driver. It’s that sensibility of hard work and family that plays out in his music, including Steel’s new single, “Take You,” which brings to mind the modern country swagger of Jason Aldean and Cole Swindell.
Written by Steel alongside Bobby Mclamb, “Take You” isn’t a typical “song about a girl.” Instead it’s a universal story about how men struggle to plan the perfect date, complete with a moonlight and backroad backdrop.
“I’m not really a lovey dovey kinda guy,” admits Steel. “I always have to ask my wife where she wants to go and what’s a good date to her. I just wanted to write a song about how it doesn’t really matter to me where we go. . .as long as I’m with her.”
With two Billboard-charting songs already under his belt as well as past stints opening for Lonestar, Jerrod Neiman, Dylan Scott, Neal McCoy and Stoney LaRue, Steel is ready to hit the road (with his dad at the wheel, of course).
