Unless you live under a rock, you have heard and hopefully seen Mr. Tyler Childers by now. His meteoric rise has been well documented, but that’s exactly why he needs your help.
Over the past year, many great things have happened for Tyler. He has shared the stage with John Prine, debuted on the Grand Ole Opry, played the Ryman and has played many, many sold-out shows. All of which were documented in a very personal way on Tyler’s Instagram. Now it seems, it has been erased by a hacker. The biggest year of this wonderful man’s life and some a$$hole stole his account and has been deleting his memories.
His management has been in contact with Instagram and they’re still diligently working on it, but it apparently isn’t an easy recovery and it is quite possible that it’s gone forever. And this is where you and I come into the picture. Tyler’s lovely Lady May has asked that we all share our memories and help Tyler save what he can.
Here’s what Senora has to say, “Good Afternoon y’all! I hate to ask this but I need a favor. Can you guys go and regram some of your favorite Instagram posts of Tyler’s? His account was hacked and whoever has taken over is deleting all of his posts. Let’s put #timmytychilders on each post to keep track! I think we can save some really special memories if we put forth a group effort. Here’s what it currently looks like, the user name is changed to abd_ma20003″. You can see her original Instagram post here.
It seems hackers steal accounts for the followers, delete content, and then turn it into either a spam account that sells crap or they sell the account in the black market. Either way, this sucks and we need to do our part and help this young man reclaim his memories from the incredible ride he has had over the past few years.
