Warner signs Beathard
Tuesday, January 15, 2019
– Tucker Beathard, who had a hit with "Rock On" in 2016, but never released a CD, has a new home - Warner Nashville.
Beathard inked the contract following the independent release of the first installment of his debut double album, "Nobody's Everything," on Nov. 30 on his own label, Mother Tucker. Beathard had been on Big Machine.
Beathard already released the first part of the double. The second chapter will be released in soon on Warner Music Nashville, although no date was given.
"It was really important to me during this album-making process, that I didn't immediately rush into signing a record deal," said Beathard. "With everything I've learned during this journey, I wanted to be sure whenever I add a new layer into the fold it's the right fit and that it's always about the music. The first time I met with the team at Warner, I knew they were the right ones to help get more of my music out into the world."
Beathard, whose father is a songwriter and brother is a quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, had been on Dot, an imprint of Big Machine. He went to number two with "Rock On." He released an EP, "Fight Like Hell," in 2016. A full-length debut album, Dear Someone, was announced for 2017, but it was never released. Beathard and Big Machine split last year.

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: Rising Appalachia buck the mainsteam, and that's fine with them
Rising Appalachia would not be accused of being in the musical mainstream. Not too many bands who combine folk and Appalachian sounds with new world music could possibly be.
And that suits the sister-led duo of Chloe Smith and Leah Song just fine. In fact, at one point, Chloe made it clear she did not embrace radio play as a sign of success... »»»
