Eric Church said he was going to take some time and let the music come to him. After Chief blew up on the charts and made Church a superstar it made some people wonder if Eric could keep things rolling.
From the sounds of the new song it seems like Eric was right to let the songs come to him. This is different. It’s a good one.
The Outsiders – Eric Church
There have been heavy metal sounds in country before. Jason Aldean has done it a bit. Eric Church has been doing it with a few songs, but this song is heavy. It’s going way outside the norm for country music and really bringing heavy rock into the mix.
In a time when many country singers are going rap, Eric Church is bringing in his rock influences. I think he’s actually viewed himself as a rocker more than a country singer in the past so this sound makes sense.
People are already reacting positively to this song. Eric has been forging his career as being an outsider in the country industry. People thought his songs were too far out there talking about things like smoking marijuana and rocking a little too hard.
So Eric feels like an outcast and he’s found a large audience of people that feel the same way. This song is their new anthem and it’s going to be a huge smash hit.
