NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 31, 2024) – Skyrocketing Country star Tucker Wetmore has inked a major label record deal with UMG Nashville in partnership with Back Blocks Music. Approaching 200 million career streams out of the gate, Wetmore has released three back-to-back chart-climbing tracks: “Wine Into Whiskey,” “Wind Up Missin’ You” and “What Would You Do?” available now. “Wind Up Missin’ You” will hit Country Radio airwaves with an impact date of June 10, via EMI Records Nashville.

“Before I moved to Nashville, I sat down and made a list of goals for myself,” shares Wetmore. “And for the last four years, I have been working toward them every single day. Today I have checked off one of the biggest I set for myself… signing a record deal. My new family at UMG Nashville checked all of my boxes. The drive, dedication, love and respect we all have for each other outside of music is the real reason why I’m so proud to now call them partners, along with my team at Back Blocks Music. With the fire that has already been started, I couldn’t pick better people to pour gasoline on it. I couldn’t be more excited and confident about this next chapter in my career. I love you all, thank you for continuing to make my dreams come true. God is so good.”

“The world has only seen a glimpse of what Tucker is going to do for country music,” shares UMG Nashville Chair & CEO, Cindy Mabe. “His strong connection to his purpose shines a light on what has helped build him: his family, his faith, his team and his fans. Representing country music from the Pacific Northwest, Tucker’s distinctive sound, soulful lyrics and his instantly likable personality bring the perfect ingredients to nurture and grow a lasting career. UMG Nashville is so honored to work with Tucker, Rakiyah and Back Blocks Music in building the next era of country music history.”

“I’m honored to continue working with Tucker as he expands his team with the brilliant minds at UMG,” shares Back Blocks Music CEO/Founder, Rakiyah Marshall. “What Tucker and our Back Blocks team have built together in less than 3 years has been incredible, but it’s just the beginning. I am blown away by the character, talent and work ethic that make up who Tucker is as an artist and human, and am so thankful to be on this ride with the newest UMG Nashville artist.”

Already scoring two Hot 100 hits, Wetmore was named Billboard’s May Country Rookie of the Month and has seen unprecedented success with his debut tracks, captivating a rapidly growing fanbase. Currently headlining shows of his own, he recently supported Kameron Marlowe on the Strangers Tour, is set for high-profile festival appearances this summer – including a stacked CMA Fest schedule with appearances at Spotify House and the UMG Nashville Takeover at Skydeck on Broadway – before joining Luke Bryan’s FARM TOUR 2024 in September. Further establishing himself as Nashville’s next artist to watch, Wetmore will have two songs featured on the star-studded soundtrack of “Twisters,” hitting theaters this July, “Already Had It” and “Steal My Thunder” (with Conner Smith).

Wetmore is managed by Back Blocks Music and is signed to WME for global booking representation. Keep up with Wetmore on InstagramTikTokYouTube and his website at tuckerwetmore.com.

ABOUT TUCKER WETMORE:

Singer-songwriter Tucker Wetmore 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 ended his hopes of a professional career, Tucker headed back home to Kalama, Wash. — population: 2,700 — and dusted off his guitar, channeling his feelings into original songs that are rooted in 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, sharpening his writing skills and crafting a unique Country sound.

“We’ve got a little bit of love, a little bit of God, and a little bit of alcohol,” Tucker says of his songs, which blend his baritone vocals with singalong hooks, infectious charisma, and roll-up-your-sleeves determination. A star athlete since childhood, Tucker first learned about perseverance on the playing field. He excelled at a myriad of sports, earning four state championships during his senior year and setting state records. Music provided a source of comfort and clarity throughout the journey, offering answers whenever Tucker found himself at a turning point.

“I started playing piano when I was 11 years old,” the self-taught musician remembers. “Looking back, I realized I was looking for something to help me cope with my 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.”

With magnetic charm and versatile songwriting, Tucker is striving to make a connection, and so far, it’s working. Amassing over 1M followers and tens of millions of views online, Tucker’s dedicated fanbase eagerly anticipates his every move. He’s already notched back-to-back spots on Billboard’s Hot 100 with his debut singles “Wine Into Whiskey” and “Wind Up Missin’ You” as he clocks in nearly 200 million streams in four months. Making his mark on Country radio, he is currently climbing the airplay charts with “Wind Up Missin’ You.” Tucker took his new music to the road for the first time, recently wrapping Kameron Marlowe’s Strangers Tour before he hits the road for Luke Bryan’s FARM TOUR 2024 later this year. 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 singer-songwriter on the brink of putting himself on the map.
