Maybe it’s because all of his songs aren’t just about partying or picking up chicks, maybe it’s because he writes about real shit that people can relate to, or maybe it’s just because he’s stayed away from doing shitty pop-country collaborations with Bebe Rexha (thank God), but there’s an Eric Church song for everything.
And if there’s one Eric Church song that most of us can relate to, at least in our younger years, it’s “Faster Than My Angels Can Fly.”
Now that I’m 30, I don’t go as hard as I used to. And that’s probably a good thing, because I don’t know how much longer my luck would have held out. There have been more than a few times when I’ve had angels looking out for me. Sure, they were struggling to keep up and probably shaking their heads at the dumb shit I was doing. But somebody had to be looking out for me, because there’s no other explanation.
“Faster Than My Angels Can Fly” never made it onto a full-length album, but Eric released this one on his 2011 “Caldwell County” EP, a favorite among the Eric Church die-hards. So if you’ve been wearing the wings off your guardian angel, this song’s for you. And if not, don’t worry, Eric Church probably has another song for you.
Because like I said, there’s an Eric Church song for everything.
