Dan Tyminski

A 14x Grammy® winner returns to his bluegrass roots today (Friday, June 23), as DAN TYMINSKI releases the anticipated album, GOD FEARING HEATHEN.

Released via 8 Track Entertainment and distributed by Warner/ADA, the project marks Tyminski’s first bluegrass album in 15 years – and his first ever album of original bluegrass compositions – in a “homecoming” studio set that starts a new chapter for one of the genre’s most celebrated contemporary figures.

Fourteen-time Grammy® award-winning singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Dan Tyminski's version of the #1 global smash, "Hey Brother," is available today on all streaming platforms and via Play MPE. The song introduces Tyminski's new 8 Track Entertainment album, God Fearing Heathen dropping June 23, 2023. “Hey Brother,” released in 2013 by Swedish DJ Avicii, featured Tyminski on vocals and has streamed over one billion times.

Grammy, IBMA and CMA award-winning multi-platinum star, Dan Tyminski, has signed a worldwide recording contract with Muscle Shoals/Nashville-based 8 Track Entertainment, it was announced today by 8 Track Entertainment President, Noah Gordon. Tyminski’s first single for the label, “Hey Brother,” a global smash originally recorded with Swedish DJ Avicii, will be released this fall.

Growing up, 14-time Grammy Award-winning guitarist and singer Dan Tyminski wasn’t really a six-string picker, favoring mandolin or banjo when he joined the jam—until he heard Tony Rice, that is. Hearing Rice kick-off “Ten Degrees and Getting Colder” with J.D. Crowe and the New South for the first time, Tyminski was overtaken by the sound, forever changing his trajectory as a musician. Like the rest of the tight-knit bluegrass world, Tyminski was devastated by the loss of his hero in late 2020.
