Three rescue puppies visit concert, get adopted by Tyler Childers’ road crew

Music stars and their touring crews often have a lot of wild and interesting stories from the road, but one recent story is just plain wholesome.

When Grammy-nominated country star Tyler Childers played a show in Chicago, he was joined by some rescue pups — who made a life-changing impression on some of his tour team, leading to a very happy ending.

Three puppies at a shelter in West Texas were placed on the euthanasia list due to lack of space and slow adoptions.

But thankfully, Chicago-based animal shelter One Tail at a Time got word of the situation and took them in, according to a Facebook post from the organization.

Saved from nearly being put down and transported up to Chicago, the puppies soon got a special treat: they were invited to see Tyler Childers and S.G. Goodman at the United Center.

Childers is a 7-time Grammy Award nominated country star, known for songs like “All Your’n” and “In Your Love.”

Not only did the puppies get a day out, they were also there to bring some joy to Childers’ crew.

“Their goal was to give the hard working road crew a little bit of levity and love,” One Tail at a Time wrote.

The crew bonded with the three rescue pups — and the visit led to a very special connection and an unexpected outcome: all three puppies were adopted by crew members!

“Congrats to Tyler an Larry, Kyle and Cheryl, and Suzanne and Ted. We couldn’t be happier for these little road dogs!” One Tail at a Time wrote.

“It truly takes a village to change their lives!”

You never know what will happen on tour, and there have been other stories of musicians playing a gig and then unexpectedly going home with a puppy — like Meat Loaf and Carrie Underwood.

What an amazing turnaround for these puppies — they were nearly euthanized, and now they’ve all been adopted by Tyler Childers’ crew! Thank you to everyone who helped make these heartwarming adoptions possible!
