Praised by the Los Angeles Times as “one of Nashville’s most forthright truth-tellers,” Eric Church has started the new year strong as his latest single “Some Of It” earns most-added distinction with 46 first-day stations.
The song described by Esquire as “an open-hearted look at life’s hard-won lessons” offers Church’s honest reflection on what matters most in life. As Vulture explains, “‘Some Of It’ coyly opens with a list of simple truths – ‘Beer don’t keep, love’s not cheap, and trucks don’t wreck themselves’ – and builds to a chorus about life being a game of patience and learning. You think he’s singing about the value of wisdom, and then the bridge deals a haymaker: ‘What really makes you a man / Is being true to her till your glass runs out of sand.’”
“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,” explains Church of the song that nearly didn’t find a home on Desperate Man. “To me, it made the album.”
“Some Of It” follows the title track as the second single off Church’s latest album, Desperate Man, a project praised as one of 2018’s best by American Songwriter, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, Esquire, Los Angeles Times, NPR, Rolling Stone, USA Today, Variety and Vulture among others.
