“One of the best rock anthems in music history has been re-recorded. Who would have believed a country artist could take it 30 plus years later and make it a multi-format hit?”
Randy Adams, KKRB/KFLS-FM (Klamath Falls, Oregon)
“This one is testing through the roof. It needs to be on your radar today. Like Sunny Sweeney, this one is going to have some legs, so hop on it today!”

Following a series of successful singles, Vince Hatfield is releasing his rendition of the Kiss classic, “Beth” to country radio. Hatfield was introduced to the song by his wife, and recorded it for his forthcoming album at her request. Through the TV program Gene Simmons Family Jewels, Hatfield also learned Gene Simmons promised Peter Criss that Kiss would never perform “Beth” again after Criss retired and has stuck to his word. Hatfield hopes that his version will allow fans to once again hear “Beth” performed in a live setting.
Born the son of a West Texas oil refinery worker, Vince worked tough jobs like cleaning inside oil tanks to pay the bills as a young man just getting started. His early life revolved around music, where drew inspiration from icons like Marty Robbins, Bobby Goldsboro, Merle Haggard and Ronnie Milsap. Hatfield later went on to record with some of Nashville’s best producers and musicians, releasing albums and singles that have built the foundation for where he is today. He was also awarded New Music Weekly’s “Breakthrough Artist of the Year” earlier in 2010, and continues to build his following outside of Texas.
