Emerging Artist

Tucker Beathard is up to #13 (+8) in his 5th week on the chart and just made his Debut on Ultimate Country Artists. A musical upbringing has served the young man well: he was in a band with his brothers and his father is songwriter Casey Beathard, who has had a hand in penning hits for Gary Allan, Billy Ray Cyrus, Trace Adkins, Kenny Chesney, and Eric Church. Tucker is signed with Big Machine’s Dot Records imprint and his debut single, Rock On, is doing well at Country Radio with ~3,700 spins across 240+ stations for an audience of over 17 million in the past week. On the touring front, mixing in headline dates with support for Dierks Bentley is going to keep this growing artist busy through the summer.
