Tucker Beathard’s follow-up to his #2 debut single, “Rock On,” is a tribute to his momma.
“I pray for all my kids every day, but sometimes I have to send an extra one up for Tucker,” Susan Beathard says of her offspring who inspired his father, Casey Beathard, to write the hit “Homeboy” for Eric Church. You can meet Tucker’s mom in a new video now posted on YouTube.
“In a lot of ways I was a typical teenager, getting into trouble and doing thing I shouldn’t, and I definitely pushed things a little too far a time or two,” Tucker confesses. “My mom raised and is still raising five kids, and it takes a strong woman to steer us all in the right direction. I have so much respect for the job she’s done. I know at some point she probably wanted to ship me off to military school or something, but she stuck with me!”
“Momma and Jesus” is the second single from the newcomer’s Fight Like Hell EP.
