Love By the Moon

Album: single release only (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • This feel-good summer song finds Tyler Farr singing about putting in the work during the day before enjoying a laid-back night with his wife under the stars.
  • "Love By The Moon" was co-written by Tree Vibez Music's James McNair, Ross Ellis, and Christopher Stevens. The song struck a chord with Farr as soon as he heard it.

    "Me and my wife Hannah have been married for a year and a half now, and this song is for her," he said. "We live in the country and enjoy our lives together on the farm. We laugh, work and play hard. This song is us! Being a country music artist, I'm away from home a lot. So, when I do get time at home, I make those days count and don't take one for granted. We live by the sun and love by the moon."
  • Musically, the song immediately appealed to both Tyler Farr and his producer Kristian Bush as soon as they heard it:

    "The demo always sounds way different, and I remember it had all of these clapping sounds and it was really weird," Farr told Taste of Country with a laugh. "Kristian Bush was sitting there listening to it, and you know how he is - he is very creative and he's got all these cool vibes going on. He was leaning back with his eyes closed... I just knew we had something. I just thought it had a country mainstream vibe and the song just spoke to me."
