Special Feature
2 Texas Talent: Tyler McCollum

We have all felt the power of a song – the way a simple lyric can transport us to a very specific point in our lives and remind us exactly how we felt during that moment. Songwriters who can artistically take us on a journey have always resonated with Conroe native Tyler McCollum. Since he was a kid, he has been drawn to the art of storytelling and dedicated to honing his craft as a songwriter and musician. In his debut album Backbone, the 33-year-old singer/songwriter, who now resides in Austin, delivers honest recollections of the past and even takes us on a trip back in time to “some of the greatest days” of his life. Postcards Magazine had the privilege of visiting with McCollum before a recent show in Brenham. We talked about his life-long love for music and how the support of his entire family gave him the confidence to chase his dream.
