New artist Tyler Rich stopped by WOKQ this afternoon to play his new song The Difference. We brought him in for a bit of Q&A, a couple music surprises, and learned four things along the way.

BIG thanks to @tylerrich for throwing down on @wokq975 this afternoon 🇺🇸

4. 100 Songs - Since singing his deal a little over two years ago, he has written about 100 songs. Oddly, his first single wasn't one of them. Following the advice Garth Brooks once gave him 'write everything you like, but record what you feel."

3. Must Love Dogs - An avid dog lover, and rescuer, he recently helped raise thousands of dollars for an abused dog's surgery.

2. Raised By Kings - Influenced by King George Strait, and King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Both come across strong through his music.

1. She's With Me (Him): The leading lady you'll see in his video for The Difference, is also his IRL. Also, they are recently engaged.
