Over six albums and 15+ years in Nashville, Eric Church has never been shy about releasing defiant music that carries an important message. Offering what he describes as “the tip of the spear” for what’s to come, Church once again leads with an emphasis on truth and emotion, as “Stick That In Your Country Song” earns most-added distinction at Country radio.
“Stick That In Your Country Song” is one of many songs Church wrote in a rural North Carolina cabin earlier this year, which he has teased throughout recent performances on ACM Presents: Our Country (“Never Break Heart”), Stagecouch (“Jenny”) and in a defiant spoken-word recording (“Through My Ray-Bans”). The new music follows Church’s most recent critically acclaimed project, 2018’s Desperate Man, his sixth studio album which was named one of the year’s best by American Songwriter, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, Los Angeles Times, NPR, Rolling Stone, Variety and Vulture, among others, also earning a GRAMMY nod for Best Country Album (his third nomination in the category).
Renowned just as much for his high-energy live performances as he is for his unapologetic records, Church will appear on the Country Music Association’s “Best of Fest” television special Monday, July 13, to relive his epic mega-medley performance during CMA Fest 2019, where he performed a 30-minute, solo acoustic set for the Nissan Stadium crowd – just weeks after setting the venue’s concert attendance record with more than 56,000 fans as part of his chart-topping Double Down Tour.
