Tucker Beathard on the Real American Heroes

Talks About Paint Ball With Navy SEALs and New Music

Rising artist Tucker Beathard and his band have a motto for the road: “This is what we quit school for.”

After high school, the self-taught musician was offered a baseball scholarship from Middle Tennessee State University, but he turned it down to pursue music full time.

“School just wasn’t my thing,” Beathard admitted while chewing the fat and some Bubblicious gum during our CMT.com. “They’ve got a great music program, though.”

With his debut single “Rock On” inside the Top 10 and climbing, it looks like taking the risk of not going to college has paid off for the former high school athlete. He has spent the summer on tour with Dierks Bentley, Randy Houser and Cam, and his inaugural headlining trek — the Rock On College Tour — starts Oct. 13 in Champaign, Illinois with Aubrie Sellers. Starting Dec. 3, he will be across the pond for the second time this year for three shows in Dublin, London and Glasgow.
