Eric Church’s fourth studio album, The Outsiders, hit store shelves this week. Following the success of his 2011 album, Chief, which has sold 1.5 million copies to date and produced five hit songs, including two No. 1s, Eric set out to challenge himself on The Outsiders.
“We were at a point in our career where I understand that we had two choices,” he said. “I could’ve continued to do what ‘Drink in My Hand,’ ‘Springsteen,’ ‘Creepin’,’ I know how to do those things. I know how to continue the career that way. I think we made a conscious effort to challenge ourselves artistically and to do something that was artistic. That’s what we did. That’s what we chose on this album. We made it that way.”
Produced by Jay Joyce, the The Outsiders features his current single, “Give Me Back My Hometown.” Watch Eric’s “Give Me Back My Hometown” music video >>
