The Chief was doing his part to support small businesses during the holiday season last winter.
Eric Church and his Gather Again Tour rolled into Greensboro, North Carolina in December of 2021, and while he was in his home state, Eric took some time to do a little bit of holiday shopping at a local music store.
According to WFMY, Church bought over $50,000 worth of guitars from the Greensboro Music Barn. Manager Shawn Roberts says that he bought “a lot of guitars,” and even picked up some new vintage six-strings while he was at it.
The store also posted a picture on its Facebook page of Chief on his shopping trip.
Great to see artists supporting local music shops.
And you know when Eric’s playing in his home state he has to play “Carolina” – and he was even draped in the North Carolina flag.
Eric Church Releases Studio Video For “Lone Wolf,” A Cut From His Newly Released & EP
The wait was finally over when Eric Church released & from his three piece Heart & Soul album a couple of weeks back.
It’s the third and final chapter to what will probably go down as Chief’s most historic album to date, with a combined 24 songs, each written and recorded in the same day during a month long retreat in the mountains of Western North Carolina.
The & album was released to the fan club only when the album initially came out, and then recently, made available to the public.
Speaking of &, there is one song that truly grabs your attention in my opinion, tugging at every heartstring you’ve got…
And it’s “Lone Wolf.”
It’s a song about how Church has always been an outsider his whole life, keeping to himself and answering to nobody but him, until he found the love of his life.
The acoustic driven song captivates you from the very beginning, but it’s Church’s vocals in the chorus that pulls the whole song together, when he sings:
“Now this lone wolf is done runnin’ down the moon
In the daylight dark of the night this heart is howlin’ for you
Yeah, this lone wolf ain’t lonely anymore
‘Cause you weren’t afraid to reach out and save a lone wolf at your door”
