In November of 2018, Tucker Beathard independently released Nobody's Everythingthe first half of a double album studio debut. It was a hard-won project, coming after a series of bouts with record labels and subsequent legal entanglement that prevented him from releasing new music.

However, when Beathard releases the second installment of his debut album, he won't be going it alone: The country singer has signed a major recording deal with Warner Music Nashville. According to Beathard, following his tumultuous journey with record labels, it was important to him to take his time when selecting a new home for his music.

"It was really important to me, during this album-making process, that I didn't immediately rush into signing a record deal," Beathard explained in a press release. "With everything I've learned during this journey, I wanted to be sure whenever I added 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."

The gritty, soul-bearing music showcased on Nobody's Everything caught the attention of listeners upon its release, and according to the label, it cemented their decision to bring Beathard into Warner's roster of artists.

"To quote Tucker's song, when we first heard this music, it was clear that he had 'somethin' to say,'" adds Warner Music Nashville 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."

Beathard has plans to release the second installment of his debut project via Warner Music Nashville. The album's release date is expected to be in 2019.
