Singer/songwriter Tucker Beathard premiered his first-ever full length music video for his debut single “Rock On,” exclusively on PEOPLE today. Directed by Good One, a filmmaking collaboration between brothers Ry and Drew Cox from LA, the Big Machine Label Group artist showcases his “hard-country edge” (Rolling Stone Country) as he reflects on a past love interest, who he is unaware is struggling herself since they parted ways. Beathard co-wrote the song and plays both lead guitar and drums on the track, which was one of the most added songs at Country Radio in its debut week.
“Making a music video definitely felt surreal,” said Beathard. “Even though it isn’t really natural for me and the band to have a bunch of cameras around when we’re playing, we had some fun with it. Having a song on the radio, and now a music video makes it all feel real. We’ll be out on the road with Dierks this summer, which is crazy too. I can’t wait!”
Next week Beathard, who was recently singled out as an iHeartRadio “On The Verge” artist, will join Dierks Bentley for his 2016 SOMEWHERE ON A BEACH TOUR kicking off on May 12 in Holmdel, NJ. Growing up in a family that excelled at both music and sports – his dad a hit songwriter; his brothers, star quarterbacks- Beathard certainly knows something about family tradition. Deciding to forego a college baseball scholarship to dive headlong into songwriting Beathard has an unrelenting competitive spirit: He wakes up every day trying to write the perfect song. Heralded by PEOPLE as a “much buzzed about singer/songwriter” Beathard has already been featured on multiple “Artists To Watch” lists including The Bobby Bones Show, Huffington Post, Rolling Stone and Taste Of Country. Beathard is currently working on his debut album, being overseen by producer Angelo Petraglia (Kings Of Leon).
