Entertainer of the Year (without a doubt, and fuckin’ better be).
And another #1.
Eric Church just hit the top of the charts (Billboard and Mediabase) for his current single, “Some Of It.”
Church explained the process in which “Some Of It” made the album…
I was playing the album for a dear friend of ours and my wife was with me. This person loved the album, but my wife said, ‘but let me play you what did not make it,’ and the first thing she played was ‘Some Of It.’ It was always a favorite song of mine, and I listened to it that night and it is just… I am going to regret if I do not record this song. I called my manager that night and said, ‘hey we have got to talk.’ The recording was done, the record was essentially done, but I said, ‘I have got to do this, I have to add this song.’ Initially, all the stuff that I thought was going to be the pillars for this album just bombed. But I think it’s really interesting that the album took on an identity that allowed ‘Some Of It’ to make it from where it started to where it is now, and it just fit in the dialogue. To me, it made the album. I loved the album before it was on there – but it might be my favorite album now that it’s on there, so that’s the way I look at it.”
Big congrats to Chief. My pick is for “Monsters” to be the next single. Stay tuned.
