Singer/songwriter Tucker Beathard is releasing Nobody’s Everything, the first installment of a pivotal double album, this Friday (11/30). Beathard’s country outlier handprint is all over the nine-song release, with songwriting, guitar and drum credits on every track, set to be released by Beathard’s own Mother Tucker Records. Also co-produced by Beathard with Ryan Tyndell and Jordan Rigby, the collection of songs signifies a compelling body of work, with the past year allowing Beathard to forge a leaner, realer sound from the songwriter raised on Radiohead, hip-hop and country. The final product is a taut hybrid that is more street than studio, more grit and raw emotion than polished gloss.
Beathard offers an insightful and telling look at the no-holds-barred album with the focus track, “Leave Me Alone,” revealing the “cathartic mid tempo rocker”. Raised around some of Nashville’s seminal writers, Beathard’s sense of wordplay, melody, movement and story is beyond his peers. Just as importantly, his desire to do it his way informs his music. Tracks on the impending release including “Something To Say,” “This Life, and “Fight Like Hell” represent a generation coming of age and refusing to politely do what they’re told.
“This last year, the walls got broken down for me to really own and express emotions more, the vulnerability and the intensity of what was happening in my life and career gave me no choice,” Beathard confesses. “There’s a whole crowd of people out there who are misunderstood, the outcast types, and I gotta believe they’re dealing with the same stuff. There were so many songs, I decided to break it into two albums, and I’m excited to finally be able to share it with all the people who’ve stuck by me the last few years. We did it!”
