Billboard's "One to Watch", Tyler Barham enlisted the help of his female fans to bring a personal touch to the lyric video for his current single, "More Than A Cotton Dress". Female followers were simply asked to tweet a selfie holding a sign describing one non-physical thing about themselves with the hash tag #morethanacottondress. Photo submissions came in from all over the country and as far away as Australia, even garnering a selfie from a US Olympian. 107 photos were used in the creation of the lyric video.
The following is an email from a fan who participated in the campaign.
"This song is a necessary reminder and a beautiful reassurance that we are SO much more than a hairstyle and lipstick shade. We are brave and bold and silly and kind and loyal and quirky and intelligent and talented. The true test of beauty is not for a mirror to decide. It is the strength of the light from within--it is how willing we are to be our unique selves in a society of stereotypical expectations. So as you listen to the lyrics, think of a quality that defines the REAL you--a quality that you identify with most, a quality that has been your driving force, a quality that gives you purpose and passion. You are more than a pretty face and "a cotton dress", you are <insert wonderful quality here>." - Natasha Greene
—Missoula Symphony Orchestra Presents Tenth Annual “Symphony in the Park”—
A little bit of country, a little bit of rock and roll…if you add to that classical, Americana, and a handful of well known movie tunes, we’ve got ourselves a great concert. This year’s Symphony in the Park, now in its tenth year, features what music director Darko Butorac describes as “truly something for everyone—a show worthy of a tenth anniversary!” The free concert is one of Missoula’s most popular events and takes place on Sunday, August 10 at 7pm in Caras Park.
The concert will feature special guest and up-and-coming Country Western star Tyler Barham. Recently named one of Billboard’s “10 Country Artists to Watch in 2014,” Barham was born and raised in Montana and is returning to his old stomping grounds for Symphony in the Park. “We wanted to do something different and fabulous for this concert,” says Symphony Executive Director John Driscoll. “Bringing in Tyler certainly fits the bill—he’s a local boy done good, the audience is going to love him.” (Continue)

Named by Billboard as One to Watch in 2014, country singer, Tyler Barham, has teamed up with award-winning photographer, Mark Mesenko, for a photo documentary video that celebrates the history and life of barns. Uploaded on Tuesday, February 25th, via the Western Montana Facebook page, the video has reached nearly 5 million people in less than a week while generating over 180 thousand Likes, Comments, and Shares.
"It's amazing to see how reactive the video has been and how it has people sharing their own stories about barns. I was excited to see that Country Weekly Magazine even shared the video on their page," said Barham.
The video and song came about after Mesenko approached Barham and his production team to write and produce a song for his photo documentary about barns. Mesenko, who mainly photographs Montana landscapes and wildlife, runs the highly popular Western Montana Facebook page, which boasts nearly 80 thousand followers.
"Ironically at one point Tyler and I only lived 20 miles apart, but we were brought together by a mutual Facebook fan from New York. I loved his music, so I reached out to him about collaborating on a video that uses photos from my They All Fall Down photo book. A few months later the song and video were born," said Mark Mesenko.
Barham's song, "They All Fall Down" is currently featured on iTunes in the Country New and Noteworthy section!
