Eric Church Says Thanks With New Song, “Doing Life With Me” [Listen]

Eric Church shared a new song, “Doing Life With Me.”

Penned by Eric, Casey Beathard and Jeffrey Steele, “Doing Life With Me” finds Eric tipping his hat in thanks to those who have helped him along his musical journey. Eric expresses gratitude to his family, band and road crew by crooning the chorus: “I don’t pray much anymore / For this old troubadour’s / Happiness, wishes, wants and needs / End of my ropes, hopes and dreams / Spend my livin’ giving thanks / For the ships I never sank / Every big, every little in the everyday things / The notes and the words and the songs I sing / To the ones doing life with me.”

Like many of Eric’s tunes, “Doing Life With Me” features superb backup vocals from longtime collaborator Joanna Cotten.

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

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
