Following a breakout 2016, that saw Beathard further his “meteoric rise,” (MSN) with the success of his debut Top 5 summer anthem “Rock On,” taken from his six-track FIGHT LIKE HELL EP (Big Machine Label Group,) which showcases his self-taught musicianship, with lead guitar and drum credits throughout the collection. Beathard is turning heads with his homegrown 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.
