Nashville, TN (April 5, 2024) – Scoring his career-first #1 on country radio this week with PLATINUM hit single “23,” the 2024 CMT Music Awards nominee and Billboard’s April Rookie of the Month Chayce Beckham today releases his highly anticipated debut album, Bad For Me via 19 Recordings/Wheelhouse Records/BMG. Listen HERE. Featuring the iTunes All Genre #1 song, “23,” that streams over 7.7 MILLION per week with over 406 MILLION total global on-demand streams and more than 10 MILLION YouTube views, the project puts Beckham’s wild card under a microscope as his soul-searching songwriting takes center stage.

Bad For Me is a collection of some of my favorite songs I’ve had the chance to be a part of,” says Beckham. “This album doesn’t just tell any story, it tells mine, and it’s all honest and true to my life in every way possible. I poured my heart and soul into this project, and I hope you enjoy it from beginning to end as much as I do.”

Carefully crafting a series of deeply personal stories, his true-to-Beckham mix of dusky Western sonics and smoldering rock energy come to the forefront, as fiddle, steel and loping rhythms stand beside a rebellious, untamed spirit and his rustic vocal.

Continuing to open his soul like most would never dare, Bad For Me’s themes like vice indulgence, guilt and romantic remorse are in plain view, joined by the inner struggle of a man wishing he was more. Battling the bottomless pit of wondering how things got the way they are, this album also shows an appreciation for life itself, and a promise to keep up the fight.

Produced by Bart Butler (Jon Pardi, Midland, Warren Zeiders), apart from “23” (Ross Copperman), the former fork-lift driver wrote nine of the 13 tracks (three solo), delivering standouts like the hell-raising but heaven bound lead track “Devil I’ve Been,” the evocative “Everything I Need,” the reflective “If I Had A Week,” as well as the eye-catching-titled earworms “Addicted And Clean” and “Smokin’ Weed and Drinkin’ Whiskey.”

While the three solo-writes, he wrote before he even won American Idol, including his career-first #1 single “23,” the poignant fan-favorite “Mama” that he actually performed on the show and the propulsive barroom rocker “Drink You Off My Mind.” Catapulting himself alongside superstars Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson, as the fourth winner of American Idol to hit the Billboard Country Airplay Top 10, prior to “23,” the last Country Airplay #1 solely written by the soloist who also recorded it was Taylor Swift’s “Ours” in 2012.

With dusky shades of heroes like Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, and Kris Kristofferson, the album reinforces Next Big Thing and Artist to Watch predictions from CMT, Amazon Music, MusicRow and more.

Currently headlining his own “Bad For Me” Tour, Beckham will join Luke Bryan on his “Mind Of A Country Boy” Tour this summer and Parker McCollum on his “Burn It Down” Tour this fall. For tickets and all touring updates, click HERE.
