Fender Studio Sessions
Butch Walker Recorded at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, CA

2013 wasn’t an easy year for Butch Walker.

The unsung hero of many of the hottest pop songs in recent years lost one of his closest confidantes with the passing of his father, Willard Eugene “Big Butch” Walker. As a tribute to his fallen idol, the younger Walker got back into the studio to release an EP called Peachtree Battle, a title that also recalled his hometown of Cartersville, Ga.

The record features five songs that directly address Big Butch’s passing. Each one of them is quite autobiographical, such as “Coming Home,” a tale of the younger Walker’s trek from Georgia to Los Angeles and back as he dealt with his family’s tragedy.
