“I wrote this song right after my little brother Clay graduated high school, and It was heavy on my heart to write a song about the relationship dynamic that me and my brothers are blessed to share,” he writes. “This song has taken on a lot deeper meaning for me now that Clay is in Heaven.

The chorus of “Brother” reinforces that message of brotherhood:

Brother, let me hold your trouble when it gets too heavy, / Let me fly when you’re high, let me sink like a stone when you’re low. / Brother let me say a little prayer for you, / Take a sucker punch for you, I’d do anything for you. / Yeah, you ain’t alone. / Let me take on the world with you.

The country music community rallied around Tucker and the Beathard family after news broke that Clay had been stabbed to death outside a Nashville bar on December 21. Paul Trapeni, was also killed in the incident, and a third man was stabbed in the eye and lost his vision.
