Eric Church Has a “Hell Of A View” in the Number-1 Spot

Congrats to Eric Church – he’s hit number-1 on the country airplay chart with “Hell Of A View.”

This is Eric’s 10th chart topper – and the song comes from his Heart & Soul triple album…specifically the Soul project.

Eric shares the story behind the song, “So, ‘Hell of a View’ – we were in the mountains of North Carolina and we would write a song the same day. We’d record the song that night, which is an incredibly hard thing to do and do it well. I came back one day from a jog, my manager was there, a few people walked into the room and Casey Beathard, the co-writer on this song, was working on something. And I remember walking in, and I remember he had reading glasses on and he pulled ‘em down and he looked at me and he goes, ‘This is good. Listen to this.’ And he started, ‘I was no Daddy’s dream’ you know, the whole deal, the whole song…and he got to the Bronco, ‘smoke my Bronco tires’ line, and I went, ‘This is really good.’ So, we wrote that song that day and the next day.”

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.
