The son of a Kentucky coal industry worker and a nurse, the nasally twangsome Tyler Childers has what it takes to impress. Purgatory, his second album, marks the first time that country star Sturgill Simpson has, working here alongside David Ferguson (engineer on Johnny Cash’s Rick Rubin albums), produced anything except his own work. It’s not hard to hear what he saw in Childers, a persuasive practitioner of bluegrass streaked old-school country with a keen storytelling sensibility.
