Tucker Wetmore released his debut single “ Kiss My A$$ ". The debut track was produced by Chad Brown (George Strait, Reba, Montgomery Gentry) and Jesse Thompson. Throughout the production, Wetmore’s distinct vocals showcase through the catchy hook.
Tucker knows his way around a Country song. His own life has unfolded like one, from his small town childhood in the rural American Northwest to his time playing college football in Montana. When an injury dashed his hopes of going pro, Wetmore headed back home to Kalama, WA, population:2,700 and picked up his guitar. Tucker then began funneling his feelings into original songs that mixed Country storytelling with modern melodies.
Less than a year later, he moved to Nashville to begin chasing down his own version of the American Dream. Tucker sharpened his unique Country sound with help from collaborators like Grammy-winner Chad Brown and co-producer Jesse Thompson. Tucker says of his songs, "We've got a little bit of love, a little bit of God, a little bit of honky-tonk, and a little bit of alcohol". Blending his rich baritone vocals with Telecaster twang, singalong hooks, chip-on-your-shoulder charisma, and the roll-up-your-sleeves determination of a Gen Z powerhouse, Tucker understands the value of hard work.
A star athlete since childhood, Tucker first learned about perseverance on the playing field. He excelled at football, baseball, and track, earning four state championships during his senior year and setting a new state record in pole vault. Music provided a source of comfort and clarity throughout his journey, offering answers whenever Tucker found himself at a turning point.
"I started playing piano when I was 11 years old, after my dad left," he remembers. "Looking back, I realize I was looking for something to help me cope with some built up emotions. Since then, music has always been my therapy. I see how much it has changed and affected my life, and if I can help at least one other person in a similar way, that would be more than enough for me."
Like Luke Combs and Morgan Wallen, Tucker is a member of the modern day Spotify generation, and a 20something songwriter whose musical tastes are all encompassing. Influenced by genre jumping playlists and the ever expanding sound of Country radio, he embraces diversity in songs like the barreling "Kiss My Ass" and the new Country hymn "Dear Lord". Tucker creates music that nods to his influences while still stepping forward into uncharted territory. This isn't your grandfather's Country music, it's Country music for the modern world. “I have another single releasing within a couple of months and will be back into the studio soon to continue to push out more music,” he shares.
With magnetic charm and melodic songwriting, Tucker Wetmore is striving to make a connection. To change someone's life. From the football field to the stage, he's always brought dedication and drive to his work… and these days, that work is sounding like a Country star on the brink of a breakthrough.
