In the latest issue of “Rolling Stone” magazine, Eric Church revealed that his record making days are questionable. The singer, whose album “The Outsiders” drops next Tuesday, tells all during a preview of his latest disc featured on the publication's website on February 7, 2014.
"Shit, I don't know if we'll make another one. I can't imagine continuing to try to push the envelope. How do you keep doing that?" Eric admitted.
Pushing the envelope is something that Eric Church demonstrates quite well on “The Outsiders.” Heavy-hitting songs presenting topics that country radio tends to shy away from shape the record. The singer-songwriter wrote over one hundred songs for the project; the ones that made the cut deal with drinking, suicide, demons, and crazy wild sex.
"I like songs that don't beat around the bush," Eric stated.
Lyrics like “Crash right through the front door, back you up against the wall, take it right there, and rock you baby like a wrecking ball,” depart Eric from the generic offerings on current country radio.
Eric Church detours musically and sonically from previous records and his efforts have resulted in two singles so far: the title track and current radio hit “Give Me Back My Hometown.” His commercial breakthrough “Chief” amassed two million in sales and garnered several chart-topping smashes, but Eric purposely didn’t attempt to duplicate the formula that led to his success.
“I knew that whatever Chief was, we had to go somewhere else," Eric states.
