NASHVILLE, TN (December 12, 2016) – Following a lot of on-air banter about the singer/songwriter over the last few weeks, TUCKER BEATHARD headed to New York City today to pay The Dan Patrick Show an in-person visit. Airing live on DIRECTV’s Audience Channel and on Fox Sports Radio Network, Beathard visited with the infamously salty cast of the show and played “20-10 Tennessee,” as well as current single “Momma And Jesus” which is making waves at Country radio and follows his debut Top 5 summer anthem “Rock On.” The songs are taken from Beathard’s recently released EP, FIGHT LIKE HELL (Dot Records), which showcases Beathard’s self-taught musicianship, with lead guitar and drum credits throughout the collection of tracks. Billboard calls attention to the “smart pieces from a singular mind, the kind of material that comes from someone who marches to his own drum and mines that perspective for his worldview.”
Making an impression as “the new Country voice that is stopping fans in their tracks” (RARE), Beathard recently wrapped his first-ever headlining ROCK ON COLLEGE TOUR, a stint that saw Beathard etch close to almost 200 performances this year. The string of dates hit Big Ten Conference towns and were quickly followed by headlining dates in Europe last week, as part of his second trip across the pond in the span of just a few months. With an instantly captivating on-stage presence that stems from being a born storyteller through his music, Beathard first made an impression overseas earlier this year when he “wowed the audience from the start with his stage presence, wit and, of course, good music,” (Think Country). He returned for an unforgettable, significant stint to already fiercely-attentive crowds. Beathard will kick off 2017 with his much-anticipated Grand Ole Opry debut on January 14, where he will take to the hallowed stage at the Ryman for the first time. A relentless touring nature, Tucker will then head out on Brantley Gilbert’s THE DEVIL DON’T SLEEP TOUR kicking off on February 2 in Reading, PA.
