Eric Church Releases New Single, “Record Year”

Eric Church Releases New Single, “Record Year”

Two-time CMA and four-time ACM award winner Eric Church is back on the airwaves today with the second single, “Record Year,” from his critically acclaimed album, Mr. Misunderstood.

Co-written by Eric and Jeff Hyde, the track’s basic story line finds a guy dealing with a breakup in classic fashion—by getting drunk and listening to old albums. But the Devil’s in the details, and when Eric sings that he’s “having a record year,” he doesn’t means he’s better off without his ex. He means he’s been wallowing in whiskey and wearing out the needle on his old turntable, trying to occupy his mind.

With lyrics like Slowly plannin’ my survival / In a three-foot stack of vinyl / Since you had to walk on outta here / I’ve been having a record year, Eric promises to either get over it or blow out his ears, and he works in a near-perfect comparison between the downward spiral of his love life and the grooves of a record. Along the way, he name- checks greats like Hank Williams, Willie Nelson, James Brown and John Lee Hooker.

Eric is up for several ACM awards on April 3, including Entertainer of the Year and Album of the Year for Mr. Misunderstood.
