Eric Church’s fourth studio album “The Outsiders” hits stores Tuesday, February 11, and the highly-anticipated release is already generating rave reviews.

NPR writer Ken Tucker stated, “Shrewd, defiant, sly and funny, Eric Church has succeeded in what he set out to do: He's using the power he's accrued from making hit records to make exactly the kind of album he wants, heedless of industry approval."

Spin Magazine labeled the title track by saying, “It sounds absurdly incongruous, sounds incredible, sounds hilarious, sounds like a threat and a promise and a nuclear assault before you can even respond.”

“After all, he sounds completely natural on much of the album when he delivers pleasant songs like "Give Me Back My Hometown" and the catchy "Roller Coaster Ride," as well as a soon-to-be "bro country" anthem, "Cold One," with its clever wordplay, hip-hop scratching and bluegrass breakdown,” is the description used by NewsDay on Eric’s release.

Why Eric Church may never record another album

A review from Vulture read, “Church’s records are the most sonically distinctive in commercial country, balancing rootsy earthiness and digital snap, with a muscled-up rhythm section that is more rock than country—and more classic heavy-blues-rock than the eighties arena-rock that’s the current Nashville norm."
