Today's episode features the extraordinary and heartbreaking story of one of the greatest songwriters in Country Music today - Casey Beathard - in conversation w/ two of his sons: C.J. an NFL QB for the Jacksonville Jaguars, and Tucker a hit songwriter in Nashville. Casey grew up in a football family. His father, Bobby Beathard was the HoF architect for the undefeated 72 Dolphins and Joe Gibbs Redskins championship teams. He literally grew up in the locker rooms of gridiron legends. Like their Dad, Casey's brothers ALL went into football. Casey didn't - instead, he packed up his guitar and his dreams and drove to Nashville to be songwriter - which is exactly what he did, penning massive chart topping HITS for Eric Church, Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw - and he built a dream life with his big beautiful family. But In 2019 tragedy struck, as his youngest son Clayton home from college on Christmas break, was murdered trying to break up a fight and defend a friend. The tragedy broke the family and helped them find each other and their spirituality like never before. This is that story.
