Beathard fights like hell
Wednesday, September 7, 2016
– Tucker Beathard will release a six-song EP, "Fight Like Hell," in October following the success of his single "Rock On."
Beathard co-wrote all songs on the EP, which drops Oct. 7.. A self-taught musician, Beathard also plays both lead guitar and drums on the new release.
"I'm always either writing songs or so focused on the next show, the next setlist that I kind of forget to look around at all that is happening...I haven't quite wrapped my head around having a Top 10 single yet," said Beathard. "The songs on the EP kind of represent a timeline of songwriting for me with 'Home Sweet USA' being one of the first songs I ever wrote, and 'I'll Take On The World With You' was written just a few months ago."
The track list is:
1. I'll Take On The World With You | Tucker Beathard, Dan Isbell, Jonathan Singleton
2. Rock On | Tucker Beathard, Casey Beathard, Marla Cannon
3. 20-10 Tennessee | Tucker Beathard, Casey Beathard, Phil O'Donnell
4. Home Sweet USA | Tucker Beathard, Casey Beathard, Phil O'Donnell
5. Momma and Jesus | Tucker Beathard, Deric Ruttan, Jonathan Singleton
6. Fight Like Hell | Tucker Beathard, Casey Beathard, Dan Isbell, Jonathan Singleton
Beathard is headlining the Rock On College Tour, starting Oct. 13 in Champaign, Ill. and hitting Big Ten Conference towns. Beathard will also return to Europe for the second time this year for a string of headlining dates kicking off in Dublin, Ireland on Dec. 3.

Fight Like Hell
Not to put too much pressure on the kid, but Tucker Beathard's dad is Casey Beathard, one of Nashville's most respected songwriters. Although his single "Rock On" - which speaks to a guy's regret over not taking Beyoncé's advice to "put a ring on it" - rocks as hard as many of those songs his dad co-wrote with Eric Church, it also suggests Beathard has inherited some of his old man's skill at clever wordplay.

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
