Tucker Beathard Reveals He Is the Father of 2-Year-Old Daughter

Tucker Beathard, 25, publicly revealed he is a father via Instagram on July 13.

In addition to wishing happy birthday to his daughter, Sage, 2, Tucker detailed some of the circumstances surrounding Sage’s birth in 2018 and how his faith helped him during an “overwhelming” time in his life.

“I don’t usually like posting a lot of real personal life things…but I wanna share this part of my life and testimony that most ppl probly don’t know,” said Tucker via Instagram. “In November of 2017 I was 22 years old, couldn’t have been more stressed and overwhelmed trying to get out of a record deal, and trying to figure out my personal life and my career. Nothin made sense. Then, right when I thought things couldn’t get more overwhelming or more stressful I got a call saying that I was going to be having a kid all the way out in Seattle Washington. To say I was scared is an understatement. It seemed like everything was kinda falling apart around me….I hit my breaking point and didn’t know what else to do other than finally surrender to Jesus Christ and ask him to meet me where I was and to take over my life… and that’s exactly what he did. He grew me in ways I could’ve never imagined. He took all the messes I felt I was drowning in and did exactly what Romans 8:28 says he does. And more than anything, he took what I thought was “the last thing I needed in my life” and instead, on 7/13/18, gave me the greatest blessing I could possibly ask for by bringing this little girl into my life. Happy 2nd Birthday to my beautiful daughter Sage… now I just pray she doesn’t raise as much hell I as I did growing up.”

Tucker is the son of famed Nashville songwriter Casey Beathard (“Find Out Who Your Friends Are,” “Come Back Song,” “The Outsiders”). Tucker scored a Top 5 hit with his 2016 debut single, “Rock On.” He released his debut album, Nobody’s Everything, in November 2018.

Tucker’s younger brother, Clayton Beathard, 22, and his friend, Paul Trapeni III, 21, were stabbed to death on Dec. 21, 2019, outside Nashville’s Dogwood Bar. Michael Mosley has been indicted by a grand jury and charged with two counts of first degree murder/premeditated, one count of attempted first degree murder/premeditated and one count of assault.
