I'll Take on the World with You

Album: Fight Like Hell (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • Tucker Beathard wrote this song with Dan Isbell and Jonathan Singleton. He penned the lyrics with his brothers in mind. "I have a brother who plays football at Iowa and a young brother who just went off to college to play football at UT Martin. We're really close and we used to get into a lot of stuff growing up," Beathard shared with Taste of Country. "I wrote the song about them and how all the stuff you get into no matter what, we always got each other's backs. Mainly everything you hear in this song is true, too."
