Biography

"I really see this album as a game-changer for us," Eric Church says of The Outsiders, his fourth album and the follow-up to his platinum breakthrough Chief. "I want people to understand that we're here and that we will be reckoned with."

Although Church has already built a reputation as a restless creative force while blazing an unconventional path to country ... Read more in Amazon's Eric Church Store

"Chief" is Eric Church's 3rd studio album and picks up right where he left off with 2009's "Carolina." Church is the master at writing country music that rocks, and his music is the epitome of what every country singer should strive for: great songs, good musicianship, and great lyrics that make you want to sing and dance, have fun, or lament over a broken heart. "Creepin'" is the album's first track and is aptly named. It starts off from a seemingly far away distance and then creeps into a honky-tonk roar. The arrangement and delivery of the song are as unique as it is fun. "Drink In My Hand" can easily become an anthem for any guy looking for a fun night out on the town. "Keep On" features some rock and roll guitar licks that will raise the hairs on the back on your neck. "Homeboy" is the first single from the album and tells the story of someone pleading with his brother to turn away from trouble and get his life back on track. The lyrics are deep and meaningful as well as catchy and melodic. "Springsteen" amazingly captures the sound of the person it's named after without coming off as a rip off of The Boss' sound. What sets Church apart from other country singers is his not only his voice, but his passion and delivery. This man sings with passion and you can FEEL it. If you're a fan of this genre of music and haven't listened to Eric Church then you're missing something! Highly recommended!

Eric Church has never been shy about breaking the boundaries of country music. He doesn't mind a few odd eclectic instruments, and a really loud guitar. This release shifts him into a whole new gear. This CD is loud, rocking, and very personal. I dont know what I was expecting with this album, but I was apprehensive in light of the interviews Eric did before it's release. He said he was going to shake things up, and really change the style he and his fans were used to. Well, I cant say he was wrong, but if you know Eric's previous releases, you really shouldn't expect anything less than what you get here. The album is a step above the others, but it's without a doubt, 100% Eric Church.
From the down-tuned but hard rockin' album opener, Creepin', to the limit pushing radio single Homeboy, and everything in between, Eric shows us that he can be a rock-star and a pure, down home Country singer at the same time. Falshes of Kid Rock and Bruce Springsteen, along with influences of Hank Jr. and George Strait. A perfect mix of loud guitars, deep, dark vocals, and bar-room burners. This album will turn off a lot of neo-traditional country fans, but even as a Strait, Jackson, and LeDoux fan, I'm open minded, and that's what it takes to fall in love with this album. The best Eric Church has offered, and one of the best albums of 2011 so far.

Most uplifting real feeling album in years. Takes you back to places you once knew and at the same time makes you want to go to new places and stand up for who you are. Eric Church is right down home singning these songs with expierence and feeling.

Eric Church is a real find. He may have recorded 'Sinners Like Me,' but I'm the one who has to repent for shrugging and turning away when he came to play at The Western Idaho State Fair.

Eric Church takes all the familiar subjects: frustrations with work, the joys and regrets of booze, and the hopes and dreams of Americans, and apply them like he invented them himself. Indeed, musically and lyrically he does invigorate country music as definitively as any artist you can think of.

His songs of redemption are mostly secular, but who can't relate? Most of the lyrics are about recovery from a woman or work or both, but "Jack Daniels," "Hungover & Hard Up," "I'm Gettin' Stoned," and (my favorite) "Drink in My Hand" all look to liquor as the remedy (and the lingering curse) for what ails you.

When he does get reverent, he looks for icons that trace their roots to his religion. For the hope of Johnny Cash's replacement he sings "Country Music Jesus," and to be inclusive (and further broaden the borders of his already varied selections) his popular tribute to "Springsteen" should fill arenas just like our hero. Then, for the woman in his life, he finds she loves him "Like Jesus Does".

Just when you think he can't get any more resourceful from a few simple, yet solid ideas, "Creepin'" and "Keep On" add more struggle and revitalize music even further. "Home Boy" is as close to a message song as the C.D. contains. Without sounding preachy, he coaxes a younger "Home Boy" to do come back home and enjoy the simpler pleasures in life.

The subject matter is inspired, but while he keeps it all admirably neat, he also manages to come up with an album without a weak track in the bunch.

Eric Church "Chief" #1 (2011).

3rd album by this North Carolina singer-songwriter Eric Church. "Chief", is a pure country-rock classic! I'm not a country listener, love my rock and roll (70's rock and some recent rockers Gaslight Anthem, but Eric too me is one of the best talents out there. "Sinners Like Me" (2006) is great, "Carolina" (2009), is just a tad below, but still a great listen, but let's get back to "Chief", you get the rocking' "Creepin'", should be a big hit in the near future, great dobro guitar on this track. His first #1 and #40 hot 100 hit "Drink In My Hand", a solid party anthem. "Keep On", a fantastic southern rocker, has kind of a Allman Brothers feel to it. The beautiful smooth "Like Jesus Does", "I'm a long gone Waylon song on vinyl". "Hungover And Hard Up", very good melodic piece, great lyrics. The single "Homeboy" #13, about a brother gone bad in the big city, and his other brother wanting him to come back to his small town, tremendous tune! "Country Music Jesus", slow building rocker, nice guitar, banjo piece, a church hymn (pardon the pun). "Jack Daniels", I used to love this drink in my early 20's, but things happened to make me quit the stuff (thank goodness)
"Jack Daniels kicked my ass again last night". "Springsteen", his 3rd single from "Chief", I'm getting tired of are local country station 93.7 from Salina, Kansas, not playing this song, just another top number about teenage memories and such, this song should be top 5, but with stupid programming people running radio stations, it'll probably only make top 20, "Like A soundtrack to a July Saturday Night". "I'm Getting Stoned", you can figure out the message, good old smokin' number.
