Beathard Just Announced His New Album KING Will Be Available On August 21 With Co-Producer, Co-Writer, Lead Guitar And Drum Credits Throughout The 13-Track Set Nashville, TN – July 31, 2020 – Warner Music Nashville recording artist and critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Tucker Beathard shared a vulnerable new take on his fan-favorite song “Faithful” today, releasing the track as a collaboration with fellow chart-topping singer/songwriter and musician, Lindsay Ell. Beathard premiered the stripped-back music video of the duet exclusively with CMT today, available to watch here. The intimate setting of the video-exclusive performance allows Beathard and Ell’s vocals and powerful guitar skills to take center stage, with a palpable urgency. Fans will be able to continue watching the video on Beathard’s Youtube page beginning at 2pm CT today.
“I always thought that this song could be a really strong duet,” explained Beathard. “Having Lindsay on the song, with her vocal and input on it just took it to the next level. I think I can safely say we’re both kind of nerds when it comes to guitars so to be able to bond over that and that shared passion to bring this song to life was really cool.”
Beathard is set to release the second installment of his debut double album, KING, on August 21 and it is available to pre-order now here. Beathard’s new LP, driven by personal growth and unthinkable tragedy, rounds out the 20-plus song opus Beathard began with NOBODY’S EVERYTHING and signals that the bold breakout talent has found his voice. KING, a tribute to the middle name of Beathard’s late brother, Clay, sees Beathard steering his own creative ship with co-producer, co-writer and lead guitar and drum credits throughout the 13-song set. The stage was first set for the cohesive collection with the release of “Better Than Me,” a high-octane anthem, while the next offering, “You Would Think,” doubled down as an open-to-interpretation plea for mercy and the grooving “Can’t Stay Here” is a playful send up to a relationship’s closing time and a much needed-musical smile.
