8. Carolina (2009)

CHURCH, ERIC - Carolina - Music

“Eric is the real deal. Yes, this was put out on a major record label, and yes it is produced “well”, but Church is far better than most of his fellow “pop-country”(I don’t like using that word to describe Church, this is just straight country) artists.”

7. Heart (2021)

“Church has described his writing process for the album as almost an assembly line where he would write the song in the evening, refine the drafts in the afternoon the next day, and cut it by the end, where he clearly got into a rhythm and just was churning out material.”

6. Soul (2021)

Soul - Album by Eric Church | Spotify

“This album is less rocky than previous albums and has more of a ‘funky’ or ‘soul’ or ‘fun’ feel to it. Different to Heart and Heart is probably my favourite of the 2 but this is a quality album of great music which should be played loud.”

5. Desperate Man (2018)

Eric Church: Desperate Man Album Review | Pitchfork

“Eric Church is as dependable as the sun, he always brings some good sound and lyrics in each album. Always a little different, but still him. This is a very good album. Very thought provoking and emotional.”

4. The Outsiders (2014)

Eric Church, 'The Outsiders' - Weekend

“If there were 10 stars that would be my choice. It’s very rare to find a cd that you love every song on but this cd is one. I’ve followed Eric since the beginning and he just gets better and better and this cd is a great example of that. It’s what Country music should be with a mix of hot and hotter.”

3. Sinners Like Me (2006)

Sinners Like Me - Album by Eric Church | Spotify

“Having first heard of Eric Church from his Bruce Springsteen tribute on the Chief album I wasn’t sure what to expect. This album is even better than Chief and I have played this cd so much – all I can say is if you like country/rock – buy this cd and also Carolina (his first album) you won’t be disappointed!”

2. Chief (2011)

Eric Church

“Chief” really surprised me. Some of the songs didn’t resonate with me at first, such as “Creepin’,” but after listening to every song from start to finish a few times, I realized I was humming or singing along to most of the songs. One of my biggest gripes with the country music genre is that there are a fair number of extremely cheesy tracks on almost every album. One of the reasons that I enjoy this Eric Church album so much (the same reason I like Darius Rucker’s newest album) is that most of the songs feel geniune, and they aren’t very cheesy or cringe-worthy.”

1. Mr. Misunderstood (2015)

Eric Church - Mr. Misunderstood (2015) [Country Rock, Southern Rock]; mp3,  320 kbps -

“Eric Church just keeps getting better and better. I was so excited to hear new music from the man and I was not disappointed. His sound is country, rock, and a little bit of blues. His songs are personal and very easy to relate to. Eric Church will always be one of “The Outsiders” and “Mr. Misunderstood” in the country music world and that’s okay with me. That’s what makes his music so good.”
