Tyler was born November 8, 1986 in Scottsbluff to Troy and Christina (Cushing) Herman. When he was a young boy, riding around with his Dad, he always requested him to play their favorite song, “Suspicious Minds” by Dwight Yoakam. He enjoyed hanging out and watching movies with his Mom, always his type of movies of course. Ty and his sister, Crystal, had a close relationship. If you knew Ty and his passion for lifting weights, you would know why she loved to call him her ”little brother”. Tyler graduated from Scottsbluff High School in 2004.
