Beathard finally announces debut

Friday, November 3, 2017 – Tucker Beathard, who achieved airplay last year with "Rock On," will finally release his debut CD. Beathard announced today that "Dear Someone" will drop Nov. 17 on Big Machine.

Not only did Beathard help write all 13 songs - some with his father, Casey - he also played drums and electric and acoustic guitar credits. Beathard released "Rock On" as a single last year and gained airplay with it and released an EP, but it has been a long wait for the CD. "The last year has been a long one, and it has taught me that sticking to your guns is not easy," he wrote on Instagram. "It's been a great gut check for me, and I've learned a lot. The most important thing being that I can't be anyone I'm not."

As for the upcoming release, Beathard said, "I couldn't be more proud of thankful. All I've ever wanted was to get my music out, so I could go on the road and grind. I named the album 'Dear Someone' because it's full of honest messages written from my heart to whoever is listening, whoever might feel a little different or maybe a little misunderstood, like me. I hope my truth and these stories resonate."

The track list is:
1. Boys That Make The Most Noise (Tucker Beathard, Casey Beathard, Jonathan Singleton)
2. I'll Take On The World With You (Tucker Beathard, Dan Isbell, Jonathan Singleton)
3. Same Kinda Different (Tucker Beathard, Casey Beathard)
4. Momma and Jesus (Tucker Beathard, Deric Ruttan, Jonathan Singleton)
5. Rock On (Tucker Beathard, Casey Beathard, Marla Cannon-Goodman)
6. Faithful (featuring Lissie) (Tucker Beathard, Marla Cannon-Goodman)
7. Underdogs (Tucker Beathard, Casey Beathard, Ryan Tyndell)
8. Fight Like Hell (Tucker Beathard, Casey Beathard, Dan Isbell, Jonathan Singleton)
9. Whiskey In A Wine Glass (Tucker Beathard, Brooks Taylor, Joe Whelan)
10. 20-10 Tennessee (Tucker Beathard, Casey Beathard, Phil O'Donnell)
11. Home Sweet USA (Tucker Beathard, Casey Beathard, Phil O'Donnell)
12. Better Than Me (Tucker Beathard, Dan Isbell, Jonathan Singleton)
13. Ride On (Tucker Beathard, Bob DiPiero, Jason Gantt, David Lee Murphy)

Beathard wrote seven songs with his father. His brother, C.J. Beathard, is a quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers and started several games this year.

Fight Like Hell CD review - Fight Like Hell
Not to put too much pressure on the kid, but Tucker Beathard's dad is Casey Beathard, one of Nashville's most respected songwriters. Although his single "Rock On" - which speaks to a guy's regret over not taking Beyoncé's advice to "put a ring on it" - rocks as hard as many of those songs his dad co-wrote with Eric Church, it also suggests Beathard has inherited some of his old man's skill at clever wordplay.

Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Stapleton shows his traditional roots – Chris Stapleton's All-American Road show feels like a singular mission to rid the genre of the bro country scourge that has plagued it for years.

Concert Review: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones – Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before.

That probably made Jinks feel pretty darn good about how life has been... »»»
