Eric Church’s ‘Some Of It’ Hits #1 On Country Radio

Continuing a dominant year characterised by unrivalled success on the road, Eric Church now pairs that feat with chart-topping success at Country radio as current single “Some Of It” tops both the Billboard and Mediabase charts.

Recognized by Esquire as “an open-hearted look at life’s hard-won lessons [that] is as easy as easy-listening comes,” “Some Of It” was written by Church together with Jeff Hyde, Clint Daniels and Bobby Pinson and is the second single off Church’s sixth studio album, Desperate Man, praised as one of 2018’s top albums by American Songwriter, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, Variety, Stereogum, The Los Angeles Times, NPR, Rolling Stone, USA Today and Vulture, among others.

However, the reflective track almost didn’t make the album. Church notes:

I was playing the album for a dear friend of ours and my wife was with me. This person loved the album, but my wife said, ‘but let me play you what did not make it,’ and the first thing she played was ‘Some Of It.’ It was always a favorite song of mine, and I listened to it that night and it is just… I am going to regret if I do not record this song. I called my manager that night and said, ‘hey we have got to talk.’ The recording was done, the record was essentially done, but I said, ‘I have got to do this, I have to add this song.’ Initially, all the stuff that I thought was going to be the pillars for this album just bombed. But I think it’s really interesting that the album took on an identity that allowed ‘Some Of It’ to make it from where it started to where it is now, and it just fit in the dialogue. To me, it made the album. I loved the album before it was on there – but it might be my favorite album now that it’s on there, so that’s the way I look at it.”
