I’d imagine life is pretty good for country super-star Eric Church right now.. His surprise album ‘Mr. Misunderstood’ was greeted with open arms from country music fans. In fact, Eric received more nominations than anyone else for the upcoming ACM Awards.
Eric is a lyrical genius. Plain and simple. The new album was written in less than a couple of weeks! However, after listening to the project you’d probably suspect it took a couple years.
His next single, “Record Year”, is a break up song but not like all the other “cliche relationship songs”.
“Keepin’ this turntable spinnin’
Everything from Jones to Jennings
Slowly plannin’ my survival
In a three-foot stack of vinyl.”
From a lyrical standpoint, “Record Year” is a brilliant song. Have a listen and let me know what you think!
It could be a “Record Year” in 2016 for Church and we are lucky enough to get him at the Craven Country Jamboree this summer!
If I’ve left you wanting more Church… Check out one of my other favourites from the album.
