TUCKER BEATHARD DELIVERS AN ENERGY-FILLED LOLLAPALOOZA DEBUT AS THE ONLY COUNTRY ARTIST ON THE LINEUP
August 7, 2017
Nashville, TN – Aug 7, 2017 – “One of country music’s hottest young acts” (Pitchfork), singer/songwriter Tucker Beathard thrived on the eclectic Lollapalooza stage in Chicago, IL yesterday, (8/6) as the only country artist featured on the lineup this year. A born songwriter, who is connecting with audiences everywhere with his homegrown sound, Beathard shared the landmark experience with his fans on Facebook LIVE from backstage at the festival as he warmed up ahead of his set with an acoustic performance, available to watch here. His no-holds-barred stage presence continues to draw impressive crowds with major festival stops including Bonnaroo, Stagecoach, Summerfest and the upcoming Austin City Limits Festival.
Between his rigorous touring schedule keeping him on the road for hundreds of dates a year, Beathard can be found in the studio working on his debut studio album. With songwriting, drums, electric and acoustic guitar credits on the upcoming release, the 22 year old has time for little else.
Recently marking over 40 million streams worldwide, Beathard has been “generally blowing folks’ minds with his catalog of heartbreak-heavy tunes” (Vice), continuing to gain momentum out on the road following the success of his debut Top 5 summer anthem “Rock On,” taken from his six-track FIGHT LIKE HELL EP (Big Machine Records) which showcases his self-taught musicianship, with lead guitar and drum credits throughout the collection. Beathard is turning heads with his unique sound with Noisey recognizing “those guitar licks. Listen to the flames wrapping around that guitar and try to get the fire that they light in your brain to stop… This is hot, smokin’, Southern rockin’, good old-fashioned tuneage.” For more information and a full list of dates visit www.tuckerbeathard.com.
