Rapid-rising newcomer Tucker Wetmore continues his run of successful, buzzed-about new releases with “What Would You Do?,” an addictive track that finds the Washington native confronting his partner after catching her being unfaithful. 

Rather than focusing on his own hurt, Wetmore flips the switch after catching her red-handed ask asks her to consider how she’d react if the tables were turned. 

“I know the story, baby, I want a confession/ I got one question/ What would you do to you?,” he sings.

In the chorus, Wetmore questions, “Would you love you? Would you leave you out to dry?

Would you lie and say that running don’t cross your mind? And tell me, baby/  Would you drive you crazy? What would you do? What would you do to you?”

Wetmore co-wrote “What Would You Do?” with Jacob Hackworth, Jaxson Free, and Gabe Foust and says it’s “one of the most real songs” he’s ever written.

“We’ve all encountered the typical narcissist at some point in our lives or in a relationship, and this one’s about what you’d say if you had the chance to ask ’em what they’d do if they were in your position,” he explained, adding, “I can’t wait to play this one out on the road for y’all this summer.”

The release of “What Would You Do?” follows Wetmore’s breakout singles “Wine Into Whiskey,” and “Wind Up Missin’ You.” In just three months, the newcomer has raked in an impressive 150+ million streams and built a social media fan base of over 1 million. As his career accelerates, it’s clear that Tucker Wetmore is on the fast track to superstardom.  

As he continues to release more new music, Wetmore hopes to provide a space for fans to turn to, no matter what they are going through.

“If you need a smile in the rain, then I got some of that stuff coming out, and if you need to frown in the sunshine, I got some of that stuff coming out too,” he recently shared with Country Now. “It just goes song by song. Music helped me get through a lot of stuff at a really young age, so if I can just make something that helps at least one person get through something, then that’s what my music is truly all about. It’s a universal language.” 

It was recently announced that Wetmore will have two songs featured on the soundtrack of the re-make of the 1996 film Twisters: “Already Had It” and “Steal My Thunder” with Conner Smith.

Fresh off his inaugural headlining gig in Sarasota, Florida on May 22, where he sold out the Big Top Brewing venue in just 24 hours, Wetmore is gearing up for an eventful summer tour. Fans can catch him supporting Kameron Marlowe on the Strangers Tour and gracing the stages of several festivals, including CMA Fest, Cowboys Music Festival, Country Boom Festival, and Tailgate N’ Tallboys Michigan. This fall, Wetmore is set to join Luke Bryan for the superstar’s annual Farm Tour.
