Tucker Wetmore is following the breakthrough success of his Billboard Hot 100 debut single “Wine Into Whiskey” with a heart-pounding new release titled “Wind Up Missin’ You.”

The Kalama, Washington native penned his latest release alongside Thomas Archer and Chris LaCorte, while Justin Ebach served as producer. Love is found at the forefront of this slow-strummed tune as the rising star narrows his focus in on a woman who has got his emotions in a tizzy. With his crisp vocals and a unique rasp gracing each note, he passionately captivates listeners, touching their hearts along the way.

“I’m incredibly proud of this song,” shares Wetmore. “It paints a picture of young love to me, something we’ve all had a taste of at some point. Me and my buddies poured our hearts into it trying to capture that feeling just right. When we wrote it, we knew we had something special, but it was the support from the fans that turned it into something bigger than I could’ve ever dreamed of. You guys changed my life with the last song, and I hope y’all enjoy this one too.”

What Is “Wind Up Missin’ You” About?

Wetmore opens the song by explaining that while his pursuit of this woman’s heart may seem trivial and insincere, he assures his intentions are nothing but honest and pure. 

“I know I might look like/ Another ball cap on a barstool/ Underneath a PBR light/ Saying everything under the moon/ To get you into my arms tonight/ You probably heard it all a thousand times/ But it ain’t what it looks like/ Girl let me tell you what it looks like,” he sings on the opening verse. 

He then spends the entire chorus singing her praises and sharing all the reasons why he has fallen head over heels at first sight. The country singer is determined to win over his love interest, even though he knows there’s a strong chance he will be faced with rejection in the end. 

“You look like waves on a sunset/ And you can crash on me all night/ You look like wine in a truck bed/ A little what I’m doing for the rest of my life cause/ You look like I’m done looking/ But girl the hard truth is/ If this night don’t turn into two/ You look like I’m gonna wind up missin’ you.”

Follows The Success of “Wine Into Whiskey”

Before the full version became available on streaming, “Wind Up Missin’ You” had already garnered significant traction. It surpassed 26M views, 34K+ Shazams and over 100K user-generated videos online.  As a result of fans’ enthusiasm on release day, the song landed at No. 4 on the iTunes all-genre and Country charts.

This mature narrative comes hot on the heels of “Wine Into Whiskey,” which landed at No. 22 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and No. 77 on Billboard’s Hot 100 – making him the first independent Country artist to hit the Hot 100 since Oliver Anthony Music.

Simultaneously, he has been gaining more and more traction on social media with his latest run of captivating tunes, leading him to gain over 45M+ views in the past 60 days and a whopping 64,000% increase across platforms.
