New Music from Eric Church

  • Print

I feel the need for a little disclosure right off the bat here; I am Eric Church's Number One Fan.

I have been counting down the days until his new CD "Chief" comes out on July 26th. I was BEYOND excited when I got a copy of it on Monday. I could not start listening to it fast enough, my first listen was on little mono speakers in the studio - not ideal for an Eric Church CD. My second listen was blasting it in my car - the ideal way to listen to an Eric Church CD.

There's just something about his music that I love. He can sing a rockin' country song like no one else, but also has this other side to him that makes me realize just how lucky his wife in "Like Jesus Does". When I saw the song title I didn't have a clue what that could be about - until I listened to it "But I Thank God each night and twice on Sunday - that she loves me like Jesus does." Or "Springsteen" - I was assuming it would be a tribute to The Boss - but instead it's about a high school sweetheart. Then when I heard "I'm Gettin' Stoned" I laughed out loud when I realized it was about an ex getting married; "she's got a rock and I'm gettin' stoned".

The playing on this CD is fantastic and the lyrics will draw you in...turn it up loud and really listen to it.

The more I listen to Eric Church CDs the more I love them. I have probably listened to "Sinners Like Me" and "Carolina" a thousand times each. And I know this CD isn't leaving my player in the foreseeable future. To my fellow Eric Church fans - you're gonna LOVE this! And I honestly think this CD is only going to make it harder for us fans to get tickets to his shows. :)

My favorite cuts: "Drink in My Hand", "Springsteen", "Jack Daniels" and "Over When It's Over"...well, heck to be honest I love them all.
