You may be familiar withTyler Hilton from One Tree Hill and the film Walk The Line where he played Elvis Presley, but he is also an accomplished musician. His new album CITY ON FIRE debuted last month and he will be playing The Club Cafe in Pittsburgh on February 27th.
Tyler finished out 2018 with new music releases and an appearance in the Lifetime movie “A Christmas Contract”. In a recent Entertainment Tonight profile Hilton discusses the One Tree Hill reunion shows and the new music. ET also ran a piece on his longtime friendship with Taylor Swift, while Bustle wrote about it as well.
Tyler Hilton moved to Los Angeles and released a self-titled independent album in 2000. He also indulged his other passion, acting, by appearing in The CW’s One Tree Hill and the indie cult favorite Charlie Bartlett, and playing Elvis Presley in the 2005 Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line (Hilton’s songs have been included on the Grammy Award-winning Walk the Line soundtrack and on all three of One Tree Hill’s popular soundtracks). Hilton signed with Maverick Records and released The Tracks Of Tyler Hilton in September 2004.
“I wrote all those songs when I was still in high school,” he says, “and I was very impressed that the songs I wrote while I was doing homework ended up being released on a major label. That was really exciting to me. I could have written those kinds of songs again, but I wanted to do better. And I think my new album is better.”
