The Iowa quarterback is confident, measured.
Country music and Iowa Hawkeyes fans doubled their Beathard pleasure Saturday.
Star Hawkeyes quarterback C.J. Beathard joined his little brother country singer Tucker Beathard on stage during his concert at Kinnick Stadium.
Tucker Beathard was in Iowa City performing with fellow country music singers Blake Shelton and Thomas Rhett. Tucker's 2016 song "Rock On" was a top-20 hit on Billboard's country chart.
The Beathards' father Casey wrote songs for country stars such as Billy Ray Cyrus and Kenny Chesney after spending time as a NAIA-level punt returner. C.J. Beathard and his siblings played in a band growing up before the oldest brother chose the gridiron over the guitar.
