5 December 1963 (age 53)
Ty England (born Tyler England, December 5, 1963) is an American country music singer-songwriter and guitarist. Initially a member of Garth Brooks' band, England began his solo career in 1995, recording a self-titled debut album on RCA Records. A second album, Two Ways to Fall, followed in 1996. Three years later, he recorded Highways & Dance Halls under the name Tyler England on Capitol Records. His fourth album Alive and Well and Livin' the Dream came in 2007 on the independent Triple T label.
Overall, England has charted five singles on the country charts, all five from his first two studio albums. His highest-charting single was his debut single, "Should've Asked Her Faster", a #3 hit in late 1995.
England began playing guitar during his youth. He sang with various bands in high school, and performed in his school chorus. While working at a coffee shop during his time as a student at Oklahoma State University, fellow student Garth Brooks met him and soon the two were roommates. They performed together until failing grades forced England to move back home. He did eventually get a degree in marketing, but he worked at an automotive paint store.
By 1988, Garth had moved to Nashville, and after landing a recording contract, called England to come be his guitarist and backup vocalist.
