Call it divine inspiration, call it providence, call it whatever you want, but “Never Break Heart” was MADE for the times we’re living in.
Coronavirus bullshit, political tension unlike we’ve ever seen, people are hurting, angry, broke, sad, sick… it’s been a rough year to say the least.
But here’s the thing… Eric Church and company wrote this one BEFORE the pandemic started. They wrote it during Eric’s legendary month-long songwriting/recording session up in the mountains of North Carolina well before anyone stateside knew about Coronavirus.
Eric debuted an acoustic version during the back in April, when CBS aired a television special in lieu of the 55th Annual ACM Awards, and it couldn’t have been more appropriate for the times. A song of hope, a song of encouragement, a song of resilience, “Never Break Heart,” is the kind of song we all needed back then, and still can use right now unfortunately.
Whether it’s growing up, falling in love or staring death in the face, it’s a hard journey all the way through, but Eric encourages listeners to keep on fighting.
“Don’t let fear steal your brave heart Don’t let doubt take your faith heart It’s ok to cry… But don’t never break heart.”
From the Heart portion of his upcoming triple album, “Never Break Heart” drops TOMORROW.
Heart will be available everywhere on Friday, April 16th and Soul will hit shelves on Friday, April 23rd. & will only be available in vinyl, and exclusively to Church Choir members, on Tuesday, April 20th.
