Tucker Beathard released the driving track “Better Than Me” today, as
the first major label single taken from the forthcoming second
installment of his debut double album (Warner Music Nashville). A stream
is available HERE.
Known for his “country songwriting approach to narrative, that builds to the payoff in the hook and uses clever wordplay,” (NPR) Beathard’s “Better Than Me” puts a unique spin on a breakup anthem with the use of his signature “southern metaphors” (Rolling Stone)
and dynamic power chords that ultimately leave the singer/songwriter
wishing the best for a past relationship. Co-written by Beathard, Dan
Isbell and Jonathan Singleton, the track also showcases Beathard’s
producer and musician skills on both lead guitar and drums.
Rolling Stone exclusively premiered “Better Than Me,” available to watch HERE.
“’Better Than Me’ has always been one of my personal favorite songs that
I have written and I love playing it live,” said Beathard. “I think
that the feeling behind the song is something really relatable and I
couldn’t be more excited to get to release it, and hopefully at some
point hear it on the radio. Having a new song out there is a great way
to kick off the tour tonight, too.”
Beathard is set to kick-off his headlining RIDE ON TOUR tonight (2/22)
in Charlotte, NC. The rowdy club tour will continue on through April,
hitting major cities across the U.S. allowing the born road warrior to
reconnect with audiences through his music and live performances, where
he thrives most. For a full list of tour dates, tickets and additional

The first country artist to release a debut double album, Tucker
Beathard’s first installment, NOBODY’S EVERYTHING, was immediately
praised for the “gritty” nature of the album, and Beathard’s “fresher,
rawer sound” (Music Row). Beathard just
announced that he has signed a major recording deal with Warner Music
Nashville. Beathard inked the contract following the independent release
of NOBODY’S EVERYTHING and the second chapter will be released in the
coming months on Warner Music Nashville. Beathard turned heads in 2016
as “one of country music’s hottest young acts” (Pitchfork)
with his debut Top 5 breakout anthem “Rock On.” Between touring,
Beathard, a prolific songwriter, can be found in the studio, writing,
recording and playing his music. For more information, visit tuckerbeathardmusic.com or follow him on Instagram: @tuckerbeathard, Twitter: @TuckerBeathard and Facebook: facebook.com/tuckerbeathardmusic.
