Before the doors opened on Friday (June 13, 2014) and all the excitement started, Wendy Lynn had the chance to chat with Tyler Farr backstage at Coca-Cola Field.

In case you missed it on the air, check out the video where Tyler talks about his whirlwind success, fans, Taste of Country and more!  The "Whiskey in My Water" singer says he's "not a big smiler," but Wendy gets him to tell us what makes him grin.

"It's what I get up every morning for," Farr says about hearing fans sing along. He must have really loved hearing 25,000 voices belting out the words to "Redneck Crazy" then!
