Tucker Beathard Talks Early Success
Tucker Beathard potentially had multiple paths to fame.
At 19 he gave up a baseball scholarship to follow in his father’s footsteps. His father, Casey Beathard, whose credits include Kenny Chesney’s “The Boys of Fall” and Eric Church’s “Homeboy”, has been a big help in the writing room.
“There’s one thing I have to give credit to my dad for,” Beathard told Chris Shiflett’s Walking the Floor podcast. “When I was starting to write more, he told me, ‘Man, you better come in there and bring something.’ That’s always how I work. I’ll come in with a guitar riff or something.”
The musical talent in Beathard’s family runs deep. He recalls jamming with his brothers all night and keeping his parents awake.
“Man, I thought we were going to be something,” Beathard says, “but they wanted to do more sports. It was never a dull moment, whether we were playing football in the front yard or music in the house. . .I don’t know how my mom did it.”
Beathard is now completely focused on his music career. He already has enough material for an album release, but is still waiting for an announcement date.
“Basically, if I had it my way, I’d come out with three albums tomorrow,” says Beathard. “It was already tough being represented by one song for a little while, and then it felt great getting five more out, from the EP, and it’s like, ‘That feels right, but still, just six songs in total to really represent me?”
Beathard fans will have their chance to see him live this summer at Country Fest in Cadott, WI. It’s his first time performing at the festival. He’ll join up with Blake Shelton, Eric Church, Thomas Rhett, Alabama, and many more.
