Hey Tyler... Can you just list some of your favorite things that rhyme with Owing?.....

Ok...I am reaching out here...pretty unusual but here goes...My daughter and I will be attending in Durham NC on 11/24. She and I have had an estranged relationship for a while. When her mom and I separated she said I was a big disappointment because we never had daddy-daughter dates...She LOVES you guys. She was an all state vocalist and has always loved to sing. I am so proud of her...anyways, THIS is our Daddy Daughter date. I am so hopeful she will want me to be a part of her life again, that she will want to see me, talk to me and be proud of her Daddy...So..I guess this is a request to sing " The Living Years" on that night. I want...I need her to understand she won't have me forever and one day I will be gone. We are losing every second, every day, every year. I love my daughter so much and it just breaks my heart...I guess I feel this is my chance to make it right. You guys are awesome, I hope you see this, and you touch so many people with your music. I hope you reach out and touch my Daughter. Thank you so much.

Hey Tyler! What are your 5 favorite video games of all time??

Gabriella's picture

Thank-you for the phenomenal concert on Sunday; I am still smiling. I really wanted to thank-you for signing my Biomechanics textbook- I honestly don’t have the words to tell you what that means: this is a class that over half the class has to retake and last year this class physically and mentally drained the life out me, no exaggeration. Your music has kept a smile on my face since a slacker friend of mine sent me the 12 Days of Christmas you tube video Dec 2007. (Good thing I was basically finished studying.) Now Biomechanics, a few other classes, and a mountain of graduation application paperwork are all that stand in my way from graduation. The signatures just make me smile when I go to open the biomechanics book and that is a far better feeling than the dread with which it used to fill me.

I know you all are probably wondering what the big deal is about this biomechanics book but it is the last hard class of my last semester in undergrad. I have been playing catch up in my studies since my knee surgery in the second semester of my freshmen year at college and since then I have struggled in many of my classes as I have been forced to take them out of order. I am so thankful to be nearing the end of this time in my life. And I am so thankful to each of you as there were many days that I only got through by blaring Straight No Chaser while I studied or drove to physical therapy. Your music has really brought me a lot of joy and kept my spirits up throughout everything. And now that I have all of your signatures on my book I know that I can get through this difficult class too. Keep it up because you are doing more good than you know. And a special good luck to you, Tyler for this week!

Just ordered tickets to the show in Cedar Rapids, IA in November- exicted to see you guys perform for the second time! Tyler, as an Iowan, we'll be cheering the loudest for you! :)

Tyler -
LOVE that you're a Marc Broussard fan.....seen him live 3x and met him as well - so down to earth (just like SNC). Please consider covering him - Rome would tear that up!! Planning to travel to Montreal in May for your show (unless you wanna come to VT instead)!

Funny moment for me: Sitting in my basement studying for a certification exam watching "Straight No Chaser" on my BluRay YouTube channel and the Hardees 2007 video pops up. Halfway through, I look up and say, "That's Tyler!!!!" Goes to show how well I've read your profile!
Thanks for doing what you do. Love it.

hi Tyler - we saw you and the group Oceans Four on Celebrity Solstice in December of 08'. My mother in law enjoyed your performances and she was wondering whether or not the group had done any compilations on CD that are available to the public?

We attended the Sat night show in Atlantic City and were wondering how Tyler is doing. Even though we were in nosebleed section, it was obvious to us that he landed wrong on the next to last number. Hope he is fine.

Happy belated birthday Tyler!! I went to the 8pm show last night in Chicago with my mom and it was unbelievable!! You all have such beautiful voices. I couldn't stop smiling and laughing... an all around AMAZING performance. Can't wait until I get to see you live again!

Looking at when you graduated, it makes me wonder how many times I might have passed you on campus (I graduated in 2006). I used to tell all of my tour groups (I was a tour guide) abut SNC! LOVE you guys!

I see SNC is coming to my city of Jacksonville, Florida on December 21st! I would give ANYTHING to be able to go! I'm embarrassed to say that I'm a single mother with one in college and one in high school! I work two jobs and still struggle! I just found out I have a tumor on my brain the size of a quarter. It has not been a fun year! SNC is my ultimate favorite! I love all of your songs! If you know of anyway I could get 2 tickets to the concert, please let me know. My ultimate wish is to be there and get a picture with all of you! Love yall!!! Susan..

I stopped by to ask the same question. You ok?

I was seated in the front row right by the speaker you hit. It appeared that the lighting gave you a challenge so you misjudged the stage.

Hope all is well. You guys are awesome.

Deanht's picture

Man dude, you ok? You misjudged the stage at the Caesars show the other night and they say you hurt your knee. Keep on keeping on. Just watch your knee on the "Big Girls Don't Cry" number, that could be a problem... Get well.

It was exciting to see you in the Macy's parade! I remember you from Hyannis Sound!

Got to watch your show in Richmond,Va last 11/9. It was my first time, and definitely won't be the last. IT WAS AWESOME!! My best friend and I really had a great time. You did your SOLO parts really good!! You nailed those songs...YOU ARE SOMETHING!! You were the first one I got to see up close during the Meet & Greet after the show...THANK you for signing the 'little booklet' with your childhood Christmas pictures in it! Hoping to see you again sometime soon in one of your shows!
