ABOUT TUCKER BEATHARD: At just 20 years old, singer-songwriter Tucker Beathard already exudes the confidence and swagger of an established artist. It's probably because music is in his blood. He started playing drums and guitar in a band with his brothers at 10 years old and had an early immersion into songwriting via his dad, two-time BMI "Songwriter of the Year" Casey Beathard. It was Tucker's rebellious attitude as a teenager that inspired the lyrics for the chart-topping hit "Homeboy" recorded by Eric Church. Not long after making the decision to forgo a baseball scholarship to focus on music, Beathard signed a publishing deal with Big Machine Music and a recording contract with DOT Records. Now he is beginning to carve a path for his own unique and unapologetic sound with lyrics like "Hell no I don't mind turning heads; Hell yeah I'll get by living on the edge; Our point of views may never meet; I don't wanna be you, yeah I know me." Beathard is working on his debut album and has already opened for superstars Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, Miranda Lambert and Keith Urban.

ABOUT DOT RECORDS: Under the Big Machine Label Group umbrella, Dot Records is headquartered in Nashville and utlizes the combined resources of Big Machine and Republic Records. The Universal Music Group, parent company of Republic Records, now owns the original Dot Records catalogue. From inception in 1950, Dot Records relied on finding, developing and marketing great music regardless of genre boundaries. That mission remains intact as artists’ signings and incredible new music continue to unfold. Dot Records’ growing roster includes organic country singer Drake White and inaugural female duo Maddie & Tae whose debut single ”Girl In A Country Song” reached #1 on the Billboard and Airplay charts, making them the fastest rising act in eight years. The label is also home to the prolific songwriter and iconic singer Steven Tyler’s debut solo project, due out later this year.
