The lyrics to Tyler Farr’s debut single ‘Hot Mess’ were penned by the Songwriters of the Year — Rhett Akins (BMI), Dallas Davidson (BMI) and Ben Hayslip (ASCAP) — better known around Nashville as the Peach Pickers. The catchy tune grabbed the attention of Farr immediately, and he cut the song and released it as the first single from his forthcoming album on BNA Records.

“That song started at the Key West songwriters festival in ’09,” Akins tells Taste of Country. “That’s the first I heard that term. I heard it like six or seven times in Key West … ‘Oh, that dude, he’s a hot mess’ or ‘She’s a hot mess.’ I didn’t really get it at first, but then I heard it a couple of times and saw the people they were talking about, so I just had that in my head. So when I came back, I had that title.”
