Luke Combs Reveals Forthcoming Eric Church Collab

As if fans needed another reason to be pumped for Luke Combs’ highly anticipated sophomore record, due out on November 8th, the singer-songwriter just released some new details about the upcoming album!

Combs revealed a blurred out track list on his Twitter and Instagram, casually mentioning that fans should check out number 13 on the list of 17 new songs. The 13th track looks to be called “Does To Me,” featuring none other than The Chief himself, Eric Church. Combs possibly cowrote the track with fellow songwriter Ray Fulcher. It appears that the two are avid Church fans, so it would only make sense that Church himself would collaborate with Combs on the track.

“Does To Me” marks the second known collaboration off the upcoming album. Last month, the hitmaker released “1, 2 Many”, which featured the iconic duo Brooks and Dunn.

Check back next month for our first impression review of Combs’ record, What You See Is What You Get.

Eric Church Goes To Jail In His New Music Video for “Some Of It”

Eric Church Some of It

Eric Church pushes his outlaw mentality to new heights in his recently released music video for “Some Of It.” The track is one of Church’s deep cuts off his latest record, Desperate Man that debuted back in October.

The music video begins with visuals of Church and his band members getting their mugshots taken, with a newspaper headline reading “Some Of It Solved- Mysteries Remain.” The headline perfectly exemplifies the lyrics, as well as, Church’s ideology as a singer-songwriter and recording artist.

“Some of it you learn the hard way / Some of it you read on a page / Some of it comes from heartbreak / Most of it comes with age / And none of it ever comes easy / A bunch of it you maybe can’t use / I know I don’t probably know what I think I do / But here’s somethin’ to / Some of it.”

Fans of Church know that he plays by his own set of rules, and that’s evident in the new music video. The singer keeps busy in a jail cell, playing guitar (thanks to his “daughter” and jail mates), and of course, utilizing letters from his family to help write the perfect song. The video tells a full story from start to finish, completely embodying Church’s signature vibe and style throughout.

The video premiered over the weekend, just before Church played an iconic show at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium as part of his solo-headlining ‘Double Down Tour.’ Lucky concertgoers were among the first to see the music video, as it premiered on the stadium screens just prior to the show. The performer played an astonishing 37 songs that night- two full sets, including all his greatest hits, and of course, “Some Of It.” It was a night to never forget for both Church and his fans, who were lucky enough to bear witness to his greatness.

We caught the singer on his last tour, the ‘Holdin’ My Own Tour’ back in 2017, where Church performed and played over 30 songs as well, and it was an amazing experience for all who attended. Head to ericchurch.com to check out the rest of his tour dates and purchase tickets.

Eric Church Joins Forces With Bruce Springsteen

On Monday night, music fans at New York City’s Hulu Theater inside Madison Square Garden were in for quite the surprise, when two of music’s biggest names and best-known voices joined forces for an incredible performance. As part of the Stand Up for Heroes benefit, which raises money and awareness for the Bob Woodruff Foundation in support of veterans, Eric Church hit the stage with “The Boss” himself, Bruce Springsteen.

The gravel-voiced rockers combined their distinct sounds on an acoustic take on Springsteen’s classic, “Working on the Highway” from his 1984 release, Born in the USA. Social media was abuzz from the performance, as you can see below:

During his own set, Church performed tracks from his new album Desperate Man, including the title track and “Hippie Radio,” in addition to an unreleased song called “Standing Their Ground.”  As fans of “The Chief” know, Church can credit “The Boss” for one of his best-known hits, 2011’s “Springsteen.” The Stand Up for Heroes benefit also included Jon Stewart, Seth Meyers, Jim Gaffigan, and Jimmy Carr.

Eric Church will hit the road again in 2019 with his Double Down Tour, including two nights across North America in cities such as Omaha, Boston, Los Angeles, Detroit, Toronto, and more. For a full list of tour dates, visit his official website.

NYCS First Impression: Eric Church Releases ‘Desperate Man’

Eric Church Desperate Man

Eric Church, Desperate Man

The term outlaw generally defines one who has broken the law.  Eric Church who released his sixth studio album, Desperate Man, available everywhere today, breaks the laws of the current country music trends by following his gut and releasing music that his fans will love, paying no mind to radio programmers or Billboard charts.

The character that Church plays in his latest video for the title track and debut single from the album showcases a fugitive on the run,  mainly from his record label and industry bigwigs alike as he tries to simply get his music to his fans.  The members of the Church Choir are rewarded each time he releases an album, the vinyl record shows up on their doorstep, sometimes before it is available anywhere else, a precedent he started with his 2015 album Mr. Misunderstood and will continue with this album.

Church doesn’t shy away from his political views on Desperate Man, rather chooses to confront what middle-class Americans are facing in the opening track “The Snake” as well as the album closer, “Drowning Man”.  The former grittily accentuates the greed our government is so often capable of while the latter focuses on the underdog, the struggles blue-collar workers are facing.

“Monsters” highlights several downfalls that the human race encounters including, pride, sickness, and darkness, which all take their lessons from the devil.  Church combats these monsters by facing them head-on with his faith.  (“I keep my faith intact/ make sure my prayers are said / cause I’ve learned that the monsters ain’t the ones beneath the bed”)

Interestingly enough, Desperate Man is released exactly one year after the mass shooting at Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas, where Church was a performer the night before the tragedy.  Although each member of our country community was hit hard by this senseless act of violence, he publicly showed his emotion during a performance at The Grand Ole Opry the following week and discussed the event during his in-depth interview with Rolling Stone earlier this year, telling them it was the last time he cried.

Desperate Man has it’s heavy, poignant songs but two of our favorites are “Hippie Radio”, a nostalgic look back at a life filled with music from the past and “Heart Like A Wheel” a sensual, sultry track which seems like the perfect sequel to “Like A Wrecking Ball” from his 2014 album The Outsiders. Sonically as a whole, the project explores new dimensions vocally all the while reinventing Church’s signature sound.

Announced last month, Church will begin his Double Down Tour in 2019 bringing his new music on the road. The tour stops in 18 cities, each city he will play two completely different shows, plus one show in Nashville. For the full list of tour dates, head to www.ericchurch.com.  Click here to take a look back at our all-time favorite Eric Church songs so far and take a listen to Desperate Man below.

Top 10 Eric Church Songs… So Far

Eric Church Top 10 Songs

Photo by: Kevin Winter/Getty Images

As we anticipate the release of Eric Church’s sixth studio album, Desperate Man, this Friday (Oct. 5), we took a walk down memory lane, chronicling some of the entertainer’s best hits.

Church’s incredible catalog of songs span over a decade, giving fans an inside look into his thoughts and feelings as an artist through his diverse song-writing. Although difficult, we narrowed down the platinum-selling singer’s tracks to ten of his best songs, so far.

 

10. “Desperate Man”

As the title track on the soon to be released album, “Desperate Man” makes the list for its contemporary country sound. The track co-written by Church with Ray Wylie Hubbard, leaves loyal fans even more excited for the new songs to come.

 

9. “Creepin”

Every Church fans knows this one! “Creepin” was the fourth single off of Church’s 2011 album, Chief, The track garnered Church a top 10 hit and still remains a crowd favorite during live shows today.

 

8. “Guys Like Me”

Co-written by Church with Deric Ruttan, one of the first singles, “Guys Like Me,” off his debut album Sinners Like Me, was our introduction to the singer’s vibe and “outlaw” mentality.

 

7. “The Outsiders”

The title song and first single off Church’s fourth studio album grabbed our number seven spot with its unlikely reception from country fans and country radio. It is an anthem for the outsiders, the “weirdos,” and the underdogs. The single captivated fans, and even found its way to Number 6 on the Billboard Hot Country chart.

 

6. “Give Me Back My Hometown”

Platinum-certified “Give Me Back My Hometown” is an important song in Church’s career, due to its success on the country charts. Its poignant and nostalgic lyrics, cowritten by the singer, earn it a spot on our list.

 

5. “Drink In My Hand”

One can not simply compile a list of Eric Church hits without including this breakout song, “Drink In My Hand,” off Chief. The track is the country megastar’s first number one song of his career, a platinum-certified track, and his first Top 40 single on the Billboard Hot 100 list.

 

4. “Talladega”

This slow-burn ballad found its way to our number 4 spot for its lyrical message. Although Church’s inspiration came from racing, the song reminds fans to live for the moment, as time passes us by quicker than we think.

 

3. “Love Your Love The Most”

The first single off the sophomore album, Carolina, is the singer-songwriter’s first top 10 hit. The heartfelt love song showcases Church’s vulnerable and romantic side, which music lovers appreciate.

 

2. “Record Year”

This 2015 track off Church’s surprise album, Mr. Misunderstood, scores the number 2 spot, due to its ingenious lyrics and play on words, as well as, its true-blue Church sound that fans enjoy.

 

1. “Springsteen”

Our number one spot goes to Church’s iconic and chart-topping, “Springsteen.” Written by Church with Jeff Hyde and Ryan Tyndell, the track transcends generations with its musical references and story romance. More importantly, the number one single was certified double platinum, and earned Church two Grammy Award nominations, in addition to an ACM Award for Song of the Year in 2012.

Top Eric Church Songs honorable mentions go to “Round Here Buzz, “What I Almost Was,” and “Smoke a Little Smoke.” How does our list of our Top Eric Church Songs match up to yours?  Listen to the tracks on the playlist below and check back here on Friday for our ‘First Impression’ review of the superstar’s highly anticipated album, Desperate Man.

What We’re Listening To: September Picks

We recently welcomed a team of writers to the NYCountry Swag Squad. With that, we’re excited to share a new monthly feature with our “What We’re Listening To” playlist, where we’re highlighting the wide range of our team’s favorite songs and artists when it comes to the country music genre.  At the end of the day, we are all fans first with a passion for country music and are eager to share with you all what we’ve got on repeat each month.

Find below each of our team member’s favorite songs and why in our September picks. Then be sure to give our Spotify account a follow and listen to our favorite tracks!

 

SEPTEMBER PICKS:

 

Stephanie Wagner, Founder

Pick: “Prayed For You” – Matt Stell
Songwriters: Matt Stell / Allison Velos / Ash Bowers

It’s funny how music hits you. Sometimes you listen to a song just because you want to, sometimes a friend tells you to listen, and sometimes a song randomly comes on and stops you in your tracks. That was the case for me with Matt Stell’s “Prayed For You” who also joined us for a Live Swag Session to play the song. The beautiful track evokes the idea of praying for that special person that you just know is your soulmate before ever even meeting them. “Every single day, before I knew your name / I couldn’t see your face, but I prayed for you.”  

Holding on to the faith that your one true love is out there, the hopeful love song goes on to paint a picture of the characteristics in the heart’s desire: “For Someone to love me like you do / Graceful eyes to see me through / A smile that steals me, a heart that heals me / A touch that kills me too”.

Whether single or a couple in love, the lyrics are relatable and meaningful, making this one of the best love songs in country music right now.

 

Christina Bosch, Managing Editor 

Pick: “Better On Paper” – Brett Sheroky
Songwriters: Andrew Peebles / Brett Sheroky

“Songwriter turned artist, Brett Sheroky released his latest single “Better On Paper” earlier this summer and the song stopped me in my tracks at first listen. This song is not primed for radio nor will you hear it blaring from speakers as you walk to the venue at a concert during a tailgate but for anyone who has dealt with the disintegration of a relationship, these lyrics will hit you harder than you can imagine. “Better On Paper” refers to the pictures you look back on, the post-it notes that served as love letters and ultimately the divorce papers that have to be signed.

“Oh here we are, the end of us is all typed out in ink / I never thought it’d get to where we couldn’t even speak,  it’s hard to believe / the worst of us would wind right here later, better on paper, a couple of strangers, just better on paper.”

I can’t help but hope that more songwriters take a note from Sheroky and write songs that mean something rather than chasing the commercial dream.  Check back tomorrow when New York Country Swag exclusively premieres the video for “Better On Paper”. “

 

Kelly Cunningham, Contributing Writer

Pick: “Here Tonight” – Brett Young
Songwriters: Ben Caver, Brett Young, Charles Kelley, Justin Ebach

“The song just dropped last weekend, but Brett Young’s been playing “Here Tonight” on the road this past month and this song perfectly shapes his new album Ticket To LA, coming out in December. It has a fall vibe attached to it just in time for the season. The lyrics and upbeat tempo reflect the different place he is in life right now in contrast to his last album. His self-titled album Brett Young was more about heartbreak and love gone wrong and now his new album, Ticket To LA, is giving us a more “life is good” side of Brett’s music.”

 

Crystal Fenton, Contributing Writer

Pick: “First Time Again” – Jason Aldean feat. Kelsea Ballerini
Songwriters: Blake Bollinger, Jaron Boyer, Ben Stennis, and Michael Tyler

“Lately, I’ve been listening to First Time Again on repeat. This song tears at my heart; I especially love/cry when you can actually hear the twinge of despair in her voice when she sings “Begging baby please just stay”. Also, I can relate to pretty much every lyric line in this song, as I’ve had a similar experience. Plus, it’s been rainy here in NYC making it the perfect weather to listen to a song where the emotion really resonates through each word.”

 

Molly Holmberg, Contributing Writer

Pick: “One Shot” – Molly Holmberg
Songwriters: Hunter Hayes

“Hunter Hayes has been out of the scene the last few years focusing on songwriting while playing a few shows here and there. Although in the last two months Hayes has come back full swing with honest lyrics and a vulnerable side that we’ve been waiting for. In the new track “One Shot,” it’s clear that Hayes is having a blast. Musically, he blends the new and old, incorporating elements of pop, country, and even a bit of jazz making “One Shot” feel like the total package. In the chorus of “One Shot,” Hayes sings about something that most people can relate to: “I started with one shot / To have a good time / Everybody knows how easy one can turn into five / Don’t judge me, ’cause it ain’t nobody’s life but mine / And I only get one shot / So I take it one shot at a time.”

We all know how easy it can be to keep going along with the motions while having a great time with friends! It’s fun, infectious, yet also conveys a solid message at the same time.  Hayes delivers all around with his amazing singing, songwriting, production, and with his charismatic personality. It is the perfect upbeat song to add to any playlist and I know that my friends and I have been playing it since the moment it came out!”

 

Nicole Piering, Contributing Writer

Pick: “Bittersweet” – Paul Brandt featuring Lindsay Ell
Songwriters: Ben Stennis, Brad Rempel, Paul Brandt, Seth Mosley

“Although I’ve heard the name Paul Brandt thrown around for years, I only recently discovered his music. The Canadian artist has a huge catalog of phenomenal songs, including “My Heart Has a History” and “All About Her,” but it’s his newest release, “Bittersweet” that I can’t stop listening to. Featuring fellow Canadian Lindsay Ell on electric guitar and co-written with High Valley’s Brad Rempel, “Bittersweet” is an up-tempo country song that you can’t help but tap your feet to. The lyrics touch on life and the moments that you don’t want to forget, but that are bound to only become bittersweet memories. “From the moment to memories, this life is bittersweet,” Brandt sings, and I couldn’t agree more. “We’re living and dying and laughing and crying, and finding the beauty between.” If you haven’t heard Paul Brandt’s music just yet, I highly recommend “Bittersweet” as the gateway into his vast catalog.”

Pick: “Miss Me More” – Kelsea Ballerini
Songwriters: Brett McLaughlin, David Hodges, Kelsea Ballerini

Last weekend I saw Kelsea Ballerini on the Graffiti U World Tour at Mohegan Sun. Since then her song, “Miss Me More,” has been stuck in my head on repeat; naturally, I had to choose it as my September pick. It’s one of my favorite songs off her sophomore album, Unapologetically, because of her sassy lyrics and ear-catching beat.

“I miss me more / I miss my own beat of my own snare drum / I miss my own sheets in the bed I made up / I forgot I had dreams, I forgot I had wings / Forgot who I was before I ever kissed you / I thought I’d miss you, but I miss me more,”

At the show I couldn’t help myself, shouting at the top of my lungs, singing the lyrics right back to her and of course dancing like nobody was watching. What I love about Ballerini is how relatable her music is and this song, in particular, she sings with such confidence, belting out the lyrics. “Miss Me More” is an empowering song that every girl should listen to at least once. I can’t wait to see her again when the tour comes to the Barclays Center next month!”

 

Danielle Tornatore, Contributing Writer

Pick: “Tragic” – Jillian Jacqueline
Songwriters: Andrew DeRoberts, Bob Dipiero, Jillian Jacqueline

“Back in May, I was lucky enough to see Jillian Jacqueline perform at Nash FM 94.7 Hackensack Meridian Health Stage 17 where she performed a new song by introducing it as one of the few off of her next EP Side B. As soon as she sang the first chorus, I knew I NEEDED the studio version. I was counting down the days until Side B was released just for this very song. After waiting a long four months, I finally have “Tragic” on repeat. The lyrics “Bottom line, I survived. Spent all year being so dramatic. It was sad and I was lonely, but I’m standing here alive in this moment, so why’s it gotta be, why’s it gotta be tragic?” are something I believe everyone should hear.”

 

Shanna Vitaliano, Contributing Writer

Pick: “Heart Like A Wheel” – Eric Church
Songwriters: Eric Church

“One of the songs I have on repeat as of late is Eric Church’s “Heart Like A Wheel.” Church slows things down with bluesy vocals and unique flair to bring to life a romantic story about opposites attracting. Opening lyrics such as “She’s caviar and mascara, I’m corduroy and leather It’d take one hell of an imagination to ever paint us together” set the tone for the gospel sounding ballad.  “Heart Like A Wheel” is almost like a seductive follow up to another fan favorite “Like A Wrecking Ball.” Give this song a listen as we look forward to Church’s new album Desperate Man which will be available out October 5th.”

 

Erica Zisman, Contributing Writer

Pick: “Hell or High Water” – Ben Danaher
Songwriters: Ben Danaher / Maren Morris

“Earlier this month, we published a First Impression reviewing country singer Ben Danaher’s debut album, Still Feel Lucky. I really related to the entire vibe and raw emotion throughout all the tracks; however, my favorite song (right now) is “Hell or High Water” by the singer This song is such a jam! The track, co-written by country star, Maren Morris, is one of those songs that can translate across multiple genres of music. It embodies soul, country, and rock all in one. Not to mention, “Hell or High Water” features killer guitar riffs. I encourage you to go listen to Danaher’s radio-friendly tune because soon you will be loving the entire album as much as I do.”

#TBT 5 Things We Know & Love About Eric Church

Eric Church is back with brand new music, let’s take a look back at five times we loved him for his artistry, his dedication to his fans, and his love for creating incredible music.

5. The First Number 1 –

It took Church three albums to finally have a number one single on the radio, but with his album Chief debuting at number one on both the Top Country Albums and the Billboard 200 charts, you knew this album was different.  Both “Drink In My Hand” and “Springsteen” hit the top spot on the charts and have gone on to be staples in his live shows.

 

4. That Time He Dropped A Surprise Album –

His latest album, Mr. Misunderstood, came as a complete surprise to fans back in 2015.  Members of his fan club, The Church Choir received a vinyl copy of the record on November 3rd, a day before it was available on digital outlets and in stores. With no promotion or advertisements surrounding the release, Church performed the title track during his performance on the CMA Awards the following evening, needless to say, the world was excited about Church’s surprise.

 

3. Why Not Me –

Just days after the country and the music industry were completely devastated by the mass shooting at Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, Church unwillingly took the stage at the Grand Ole Opry.  In the video below, he not only breaks down in tears describing those incredible fans that he had the pleasure of playing for just two nights before but also went on to state “Those were my people, those were my fans.” He dedicated his performance to Heather Melton, who’s husband Sonny was one of the victims, they were supposed to be at the show that night.  He goes on to explain that something broke in him that night and the only way he has ever fixed anything that was broken was through music, playing a song he had just written called “Why Not Me”.

 

2. Fans First – 

As more and more fans started wanting tickets to his shows, Church and his team realized that ticket scalping was a real problem for dedicated fans who were trying to buy tickets as soon as they went on sale.  Church told The Associated Press he’s going to do everything he can do to stop what he calls a criminal organization that’s making millions.  “They buy thousands of tickets across the U.S., not just mine, and they end up making a fortune,” Church said in an interview. “They use fake credit cards, fake IDs. All of this is fraud.”  So in order to do his part, he canceled over 25 thousand tickets that he believed were purchased by scalpers to make money and rereleased them to his true fans.

1. Church In New York –

The last time Eric Church played in New York, our team knew we had to do something big.  His “Holdin’ My Own” Tour hit the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY on Friday, January 27th of 2017 and we decided to go all out.  We hosted a VIP Suite Experience for lucky winners and New York City country fans.  36 fans including our team got to experience the sold-out show from a private suite. The concert was one to remember, Church played 38 songs spanning over a three-hour set.

We are loving his brand new single “Desperate Man” and look forward to his new album October 5th. Sign up for our Weekly Round-Up newsletter to be informed first about new music and upcoming events and giveaways.
