Eric Church Honors His Fans In New Song “Through My Ray-Bans” — LISTEN

Eric Church debuted his new song “Through My Ray-Bans” on Friday (Oct. 30).

The country superstar previously teased this track via a defiant spoken-word video, where he he said he can’t wait to see the fans again through his signature ray bans.

Written together with Luke Laird and Barry Dean, Eric Church had those fans in mind on the day this song was born, as the trio of cowriters reflected on the event he had headlined just two nights before tragedy struck.

“I looked out there, at that crowd, in that place … I was so moved by it,” he said onstage at the Grand Ole Opry just days later, where he famously performed his reflective “Why Not Me.” “I saw them with their hands in the air. I saw them with boots in the air. And what I saw, that moment in time was frozen.”

The song lyrics finds Church honoring his fans:

“Everybody’s got their arms around
Everybody else’s shoulders
Guardin’ against the world outside
Like an army of Friday night soldiers
The battle wages tomorrow
But tonight you don’t give a damn
Wish you could stay the way I see you, through my Ray Bans”

“Through My Ray-Bans” follows his latest single “Stick That In Your Country Song” and additional releases “Bad Mother Trucker” and “Crazyland” and “Hell Of A View.”

Church’s new music follows his most recent critically acclaimed project, 2018’s Desperate Man.
