‘American Idol’ Winner Chayce Beckham Reveals Why He’s Been Silent On Social Media
The country star shared an update with fans regarding his recent absence.
Despite achieving a great deal of success after American Idol, Chayce Beckham’s interactions on social media have been sparse as of late, but it is safe to say that the season 19 winner is not stepping out of the limelight anytime soon.
On February 5, the country crooner took to X – formerly known as Twitter – to explain his recent social media silence, deeming this break to be “the most refreshing thing” and promising more exciting content to come in the future.
The 28-year-old wrote, “I know I haven’t been on socials and posting regularly, and honestly it’s been the most refreshing thing to kind of put this stuff in my back pocket and not think about it, but we have a new album coming out and a huge tour to announce, so I’ll be back on here posting regularly soon.”
“Thank you all for your constant love and for following my journey. I couldn’t do it without you. I love you all oh so much,” Beckham concluded, before signing off the post with his initials, CB.
Fortunately, fans of Chayce Beckham were extremely understanding of his decision to step away from social media for a little while, ultimately expressing their support in the replies of this post.
One fan gushed, “Totally understandable! Cannot wait to hear about both,” summing up the thoughts of country music lovers from coast to coast.
A New Album Coming Out
In this post, Beckham also confirmed that he has his debut album on the way, something that has been in the works since the release of his debut EP – Doin’ It Right – back in 2022, which reached number one on the iTunes All Genre and Country charts.
With songs like “Whiskey On The Wall,” “Little Less Lonely,” “Till The Day I Die” “Keeping Me Up All Night,” and more quickly becoming fan favorites, it is assumed that these four tracks will make their way onto his debut album, along with his most recent release – “This Ol’ Rodeo” – which hit all music streaming platforms on December 1.
“‘This Ol’ Rodeo’ is a song I’m excited to have out,” the California native shared in a statement. “It’s inspired by a close friend of mine. This one’s for all the cowboys and cowgirls out there, literally and figuratively. This song is about taking on something that might be a little bit wilder than you, trying to hang on, and loving it through the wins and losses whether it loves you back or not.”
While information has yet to be released regarding the record, Beckham promised his fans that he will be “back on [social media] posting regularly soon,” so it is safe to say that updates and announcements about his debut album are on the horizon.
In the meantime, Beckham’s autobiographical single “23” continues to make it’s way up the charts. As of January 28, country radio insider Chris Owen reported that the tune had climbed two spots to No. 10 on Mediabase country, marking Beckham’s first career top 10 hit at country radio.

Look Out For A “Huge Tour” Announcement
Speaking of updates and announcements, Beckham admitted in the same post that he is about to announce a “huge tour,” coming just moments after his Grand Ole Opry debut and his stint on Luke Bryan’s Country On Tour and Farm Tour.
Until then, Beckham announced even more dates with the “Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day” singer, admitting in an Instagram post that he is “very excited to be back out on the road with @lukebryan this summer, Tickets go on sale next week 2/9! Can’t wait to see y’all out there.”
With Chayce Beckham fans expressing their disappointment that he will be skipping states like California, Colorado, the Carolinas, and more on Luke Bryan’s Mind Of A Country Boy Tour, it is still unclear as to what Beckham’s “huge tour” will entail.
