In 2018, Tucker Beathard had recently gotten out of a record deal and was determined to make music on his own terms. He teamed up with a group of his favorite co-writers, and poured his frustrations and musical ambitions into a hefty batch of songs. The result was Nobody’s Everything, the first in a two-part album project that served as his freedom song, the chance to record music he felt fully represented him as an artist.
That project caught the attention of another label, Warner Music Nashville, and he signed with the label in January of last year.
“Before I signed, I had 20-something songs recorded, and I told them, “Look, this is what you’re signing up for, take it or leave it.’ That’s what made them want to sign me, which was cool. They just let me do my thing.”
Now he’s set to finish what he started, with his latest project KING, the culmination of that 20-song project.
KING centers on a boisterous country-rock vibe, throbbing with propulsive energy on tracks like the opener, “Better Than Me.” And for Beathard, that was the idea.
“A catchy guitar riff, just upbeat rock, and one that just sets the tone. When I make an album, I think about set lists for live shows. ‘Better Than Me’ is an all-around just a perfect opening one, in my opinion, just to hook you and lock it in, and just in your face, to set the tone for it.”
