Tucker Beathard has signed a major recording deal with Warner Music Nashville. Beathard inked the contract following the independent release of the first installment of his debut double album, Nobody’s Everything. The second chapter will be released in the coming months on Warner Music Nashville.

“To quote Tucker’s song, when we first heard this music, it was clear that he had ‘somethin’ to say,’” said WMN SVP A&R Cris Lacy. “That’s the hallmark of a true artist. You couple that with the raw depth of his lyrics, some brilliant musicianship, and that old soul voice, and it was a no brainer. Tucker HAD to be part of the Warner Music family.”

“It was really important to me during this album-making process, that I didn’t immediately rush into signing a record deal,” said Beathard. “With everything I’ve learned during this journey, I wanted to be sure whenever I add a new layer into the fold it’s the right fit and that it’s always about the music. The first time I met with the team at Warner, I knew they were the right ones to help get more of my music out into the world.”

In November, MusicRow spoke with Beathard about the new project, the product of a years-long fight for creative freedom to make music he believed in. Beathard began work on the album following his split from former recording home Big Machine Label Group. Beathard also inked a new publishing deal with Little Louder Music back in August.

“I think it definitely worked out and now I’ve learned a lot about myself as an artist and about the business…at the end of the day I want the best way to reach out to as many people as possible,” Beathard said.
