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 (March 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. Tucker plays both lead guitar and drums on the track that spotlights his “hard country edge” (Rolling Stone), in addition to sharing co-writing credits with Marla Cannon-Goodman and his hit songwriter dad Casey Beathard.
“It’s always been a dream to hear myself on the radio,” said Tucker. "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."
Family ties in music run deep for Tucker, whose rebellious phase was the inspiration behind Eric Church’s “Homeboy,” which his dad penned in addition to songs like Kenny Chesney’s “Don’t Blink." 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, Tucker is following his dream of writing and playing music.
