Eric Church Dedicates New Song, “Through My Ray-Bans,” to Route 91 Harvest Festival Fans [Listen]

Eric Church shared a new song, “Through My Ray-Bans,” on Oct. 30.

Eric, Luke Laird and Barry Dean co-penned the song in honor of the fans who attended the Route 91 Harvest Festival in 2017. Eric was a headliner at the festival two days before a lone gunman opened fire during Jason Aldean’s set on Oct. 1, which killed 60 people and injured hundreds more.

“Through My Ray-Bans” finds Eric crooning the chorus: “Everybody’s got their arms around everybody else’s shoulders / Guarding against the world outside like an army of Friday night soldiers / The battle wages tomorrow but tonight you don’t give a damn / Wish you could stay the way I see you through my Ray-Bans.”

“Through My Ray-Bans” follows the recent release of “Hell of a View,” “Crazyland,” “Bad Mother Trucker” and current single, “Stick That in Your Country Song.”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
