Eric Church Scores A ‘Record’ Chart Topper


EC-John-Peets3-768x768Eric Church has climbed to the top of the Mediabase country chart with his fifth No. 1 single, “Record Year”.

The North Carolina native sings about going through several vinyl records to help him get over a heartache, and namechecks several iconic artists and pieces of music. “There’s a line in the song, and it talks about ‘slowly planning my survival/in a three-foot stack of vinyl,’ and I’ve done that where you take your records out and go, ‘Okay by the time I get to the bottom of this stack, I’m gonna be better or worse and [laughs] this is where I’m heading,’” says Eric. “It’s a great thing about music is it can become a point of therapy and healing.”

Eric is getting ready to play two sold-out shows at Red Rocks in Denver, and he’s got a pair of killer opening acts – Maren Morris on August 9th and Cam on August 10th.
