Sounds | Chayce Beckham - A Little Less Lonely

Gezien mijn oproepen richting de V.S. worden beantwoord - believe you me - kan ik vanaf heden met nog meer country uitpakken. Opdracht blijft natuurlijk die zaken eruit te pikken die me raken of toch op één of andere manier eruit springen. Dat is dan wat Chayce Beckham betreft grotendeels de stem, naast een gebalde en hedendaagse countrysong die niet al te veel bulkt van de clichés. Ik zoek het vooral ofwel modern (meer bij rock of folk aanleunend) ofwel héél erg 'alt' in de sfeer van de groten uit de jaren 60/70. Beckham behoort tot die eerste categorie.

Steeds beslissend: blijven de dames en heren ook live overeind. Oordeel gerust zelf en luister naar zijn grote hit 23 van twee jaar terug.

As announced at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on August 12 during his electric opening set on Luke Bryan’s Country On tour, Chayce Beckham today releases “Little Less Lonely” as a thank you to fans, as his star-making single “23” surges toward Top 25 on country radio. Showing off his innate storytelling prowess, with relatable lyrics and a pulsing beat, the heart-thumping new song depicts a chance encounter between two forlorn people, who want to forget their worries for a night of fun and a little tequila.

Named by Music Row as the “Next Big Thing,” Billboard praised his opening set for Bryan: “Beckham translates television, viral success to the stage…a former American Idol winner and a polished entertainer and vocalist further bolstered his career surge thanks to his viral hit ’23.’ His 30-minute opening set at Bridgestone was a potent testament to the road-tested stage presence he’s forged in the two years since his Idol triumph.”

Beckham also just released the riveting official music video for his massive hit “23.” Having become an anthemic staple in his live shows, “23” has racked up over 312 million streams, is RIAA-certified GOLD, and has topped numerous viral charts, including #1 on iTunes All-Genre and Country charts. The first to ever win the star-making competition series American Idol with an original song, “23” is a deeply personal depiction of a man’s hardships, written during a particularly dark time in Chayce’s own life before he auditioned for American Idol.

“Little Less Lonely” follows the release of Beckham’s gripping track “Till The Day I Die” that he performed on American Idol earlier this year, the “heartbreak-induced insomnia” (Country Now) of “Keeping Me Up All Night,” and the incredible success of his debut EP Doin' It Right that skyrocketed to No. 1 on the iTunes All Genre and Country charts and received critical acclaim from E! News!, Billboard, People , CMT, PopCulture, Sweety High, American Songwriter and more.


American Idol winner and “Artist to Watch” (Country Now, Country Swag, Music Mayhem Magazine, Sounds Like Nashville)Chayce Beckham is “no doubt a force to be reckoned with, while proving he will leave a scorching mark on the Country music genre for years to come” (PopCulture). “One of the most buzzed-about newcomers in Country music today” (Parade), Beckham’s debut EP Doin’ It Right skyrocketed to No. 1 on iTunes All Genre and Country charts and received critical acclaim fromE! News!, Billboard, People, CMT, PopCulture, Sweety Highand more. The first to ever win the competition show with an original song, his semi-autobiographical, self-written track “23” instantly shot to the top of numerous viral charts. Now climbing the charts at Country radio, Beckham’s “23” resonated so deeply with fans that it has continuously banked over 1 million streams per week since its 2021 release, amassing over 312 million thus far. A triple threat artist, Beckham is an incredibly captivating performer, powerhouse vocalist and talented songwriter who will join Country superstar Luke Bryan on his 2023 Country On Tour this summer. The “rising Country star” (Country Now), whose voice Katy Perry said sounds “like the heart of America,” went from working as a fork-lift driver to winning American Idol to appearing on Good Morning America, Jimmy Kimmel, and Live with Kelly & Ryan to becoming a truly prolific songwriter in the room with some of Nashville’s best. Recognized as one of 10 new Country artists “destined for killer careers” (Country Swag) and the “Next Big Thing” by Music Row, the “full-fledged Country star” (CMT) just released the whiskey-soaked ballad “Till The Day I Die” and heart-pulsing “Little Less Lonely,” continuing his rise as “one of the best new country artists to watch out for” (PopCulture).
