If you are not familiar with the name Tyler Barham, you probably soon will be.

Barham grew up in Montana and has been singing for as long as he can remember.

Then one day he stumbled upon a website that would change his life forever.

"I just saw YouTube and it said ‘broadcast yourself,’ and I thought, 'I have a camera and could shoot a video and sing for the camera and upload it and see what people thought,'" Barham said.

Barham started out covering other people's songs and that is where North Carolina native and now Nashville songwriter John Griffin first saw him.

Now Barham is being looked at as one of country music's fastest rising stars in 2014.
