Country music singer/songwriter Tucker Beathard will perform at this year’s Bonnaroo Music + Arts Festival in Manchester, TN on Sunday, June 11. It was announced today on the heels of last week’s news that he also landed a coveted slot as the only country artist at Lollapalooza 2017 in Chicago, IL on Sunday, Aug. 6.
Beathard’s stacked summer schedule also reads as a bucket list of country music festivals, as he is set to kick it off playing one of the pinnacles of the season at California’s Stagecoach Festival on Sat., April 29, followed by genre staples as he goes from coast to coast making stops at Tree Town Music Festival, Country USA, Oregon Jamboree, Country Thunder, Boots And Hearts and many more.
With over 200 shows last year, Beathard’s “live performance speaks louder than anything else” (Rolling Stone) featuring impromptu and high energy moments and an unbreakable connection with fans through his insightful lyrics. The multi-instrumentalist cites influences ranging from Joe Walsh’s guitar licks to Jon Bonham’s drumming to the songwriting of Hank Williams Jr, and it’s clear that this fluidity across genres has seeped into his own sound. Beathard continues to turn heads with his homegrown sound as Billboard recognizes “The Beathard blood has deep roots in country music” showcased when he “recently dropped the rousing confessional ‘Momma and Jesus,’ where the singer’s innate vocals and country twang permeate through the rock-infused arrangement.”
Beathard recently marked over 40 million streams worldwide, as he continues “generally blowing folks’ minds with his catalog of heartbreak-heavy tunes” (Vice.) Following a breakout 2016, that saw him further his “meteoric rise,” (MSN) fans can catch Beathard at Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival tonight (3/28) in Nashville, TN as part of an esteemed round with tour mate Luke Combs, friend and frequent collaborator Jonathan Singleton and Josh Thompson at Hard Rock Cafe. Beathard will then head to Vegas this weekend as part of “Bash At The Beach” benefitting ACM’s Party For A Cause on 4/1 and will head back out on Brantley Gilbert’s The Devil Don’t Sleep Tour on 4/6 in Saginaw, MI.
