Tucker Beathard Raises Cain in “Momma and Jesus”

Prefers Asking for Forgiveness Later

Tucker Beathard admits he’s the kind of guy who asks for forgiveness later.

“I don’t like to overthink things too much,” he said during our CMT.com interview. “Most of the time, the dumb decisions are always the best stories — you can always talk yourself out of something. But then you’ll look back and regret not doing it. I think you always regret what you didn’t do more than what you did do.”

Kicking back at the Nashville media firm that oversees his publicity, evidence of his asking forgiveness later is written in permanent ink in the form of six tattoos on his body. One of the first he ever got was a matching Psalm 27:1 tattoo he bought with his brother, C.J. Beathard. On his left forearm, there’s a tattoo of a compass he shares with his kindergarten teacher. Below it are the notes of the first song he ever learned on guitar, Blink 182’s “Adam’s Song.”

If he didn’t have an afternoon stacked with media interviews, Beathard would be with friends performing crazy stunts like the ones he performed in the official “Momma and Jesus” music video. The clip has him raising Cain all over town — a male blow-up doll rides a goat, then Beathard gets shot with paint ball guns while dressed in drag, then he rolls houses with friends and pedals through Nashville’s Lower Broadway in the nude on a pedal tavern.
