    Newcomer Tucker Beathard may have just wrapped his second successful European tour this year, but the “Rock On” hitmaker is already looking forward to 2017. “When I played in Europe a few months ago, it definitely felt like something clicked, but I definitely didn’t know just how much. The connection I felt with the fans over there this time was pretty intense,” he says of his return as a headliner. “They had done their research since I’d played last time and it showed,” he adds. “The songs they were asking me for, singing along to — it was insane and […]

    If you happen to be driving around Chris Young’s hometown of Murfreesboro, Tennessee and you spot an outrageously decked-out yard, there’s a good chance it might belong to his parents — and Chris freely admits he’s the culprit. “It’s my favorite holiday, I mean it just is… I love putting gigantic inflatable Christmas stuff in my parents’ yard since I don’t have one. It’s a little bit overkill. I probably need to stop, but it’s funny!” he laughs. This season, Chris translated his love for the holiday into his new yuletide project, It Must Be Christmas.

That’s resulted in many memorable moments since he hit the road last June, and his first night in his native Australia was certainly no exception. “Do you bring a guitar to every concert?” Keith asked, as he welcomed flummoxed fan Amy Jennifer to the stage, with her axe in tow. “No just yours,” she replied, giggling, “I’m sorry. You’re so beautiful!” somewhere along the way.   “I’ve become a bloody guitar tech!” […]
