THE “DISTINCT SOUND” OF TUCKER BEATHARD’S DEBUT SINGLE “ROCK ON” HITS RADIO AIRWAVES TODAY AS ONE OF THE MOST ADDED TRACKS IN THE FORMAT
Nashville, TN - Mar. 7, 2016 - Showcasing "his strong songwriting [and] gritty rock-country voice,” (Taste Of Country) Tucker Beathard’s debut single “Rock On” is one of the most added songs at radio today. Beathard plays both lead guitar and drums on the track that spotlights his “hard country edge” (Rolling Stone), in addition sharing co-writing credits with Marla Cannon-Goodman and his dad hit songwriter Casey Beathard.
“It’s always been a dream to hear myself on the radio,” said Beathard. "I've learned a lot and had a lot of fun thus far in my career, and have loved sharing my music with people in every bar, club, festival and arena. Now getting to share it through the radio I'm fired up to see what happens and keep on taking more steps."
Beathard's family ties in music run deep, with dad Casey Beathard penning songs like Kenny Chesney’s “Don’t Blink” and Eric Church’s “Homeboy,” the latter inspired by his son's rebellious phase. He picked up the guitar and drums at the age of 10, often playing in a band with his two brothers. While his brothers strayed away from music to chase another family legacy in football by becoming star quarterbacks, Beathard is following his dream of writing and playing music.
