15. Kill a Word (Mr. Misunderstood, 2015)

“.Kill a Word” is something anyone who has lived a life with some difficulty can understand. I understand being on the receiving end of those kinds of words, I also understand what it’s like to wish I hadn’t uttered some of those same words myself.”

14. Creepin’ (Chief, 2011)

“I like the songs this man sings. This one is very different and interesting and I love it. I like to sing along as loud as I can on this song, don’t matter who hears me, All his songs are Awesome, but this one the music just makes me happy and always makes me want to dance. I turn it up LOUD in the car on my way down the highway!!! I am having fun.”

13. Carolina (Carolina, 2009)

“Solid songwriting with great melodies, it’s not as hard as his later stuff, but still has that slight rebellious “rocker” edginess that his fans appreciate. Overall, it’s authentic country music by an authentic country boy who just sings his stories without trying to please anyone except himself.”

12. Cold One (The Outsiders, 2014)

“This is one awesome song. You can’t any more country then a man who’s woman leaves him and takes a beer with her and he mourns the loss of the beer and not the woman. Classic.”

11. Country Music Jesus (Chief, 2011)

“This is a really good song. I think it really gets to the heart of the troubled state of today’s country music. The analogy of mankind’s need for a savior, paralleled with country music’s need to be redeemed to something more in-line with it’s original state, is brilliant.”

10. Record Year (Mr. Misunderstood, 2015)

“Record Year” has that swaying lazy feel that country music does so well. One of the few genres that takes a sad subject and with the feel of the music actually make it seem upbeat.”

9. Homeboy (Chief, 2011)

“I love the originality of today’s country music. I know when I see a white guy in a hat I am about to hear some pure gold. Would like to hear more about sitting in a truck and drinking bear. Also would like to know about living in the country as well. Not enough lyrics about that.”

8. Round Here Buzz (Mr. Misunderstood, 2015)

“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.”

7. Pledge Allegiance to the Hag (Sinners Like Me, 2006)

“Not many people write reviews for songs but I love Eric Church and I think this song is worthy of a review. There’s not a whole lot I can say. It’s a fun sounding song and the lyrics just seem to speak to you. I think it’s just better though if you preview the song or buy it for yourself though.”

6. The Outsiders (The Outsiders, 2014)

“Mr. Church always puts so much heart and soul into his music. It is like he is telling you a story about his life. I am aware that this is not “classic” country however, shaking things up every once in awhile is good.”

5. Over When It’s Over (Chief, 2011)

“A slowly building song, but great at the climax. Love it when it gets stuck in my head! Eric Church knows how to get right to me. I can blast his songs all day long, and never get tired of what I’m listening too.”

4. Talladega (The Outsiders, 2014)

“For those of us who spent their summers in around Talladega County- It has always been more than the raceway-It has heart-beautiful hills and had marble quarries-the world’s most beautiful alabaster white marble came from there. Eric Church captures the essence of the county in this song.”

3. Give Me Back My Hometown (The Outsiders, 2014)

“This song moved me from the first time I heard it. It takes the listener back to a time when life was all about where you grew up, what was important to you, and wondering why someone else wouldn’t share those feelings……..if you don’t like it, then give me back my hometown.”

2. Drink in My Hand (Chief, 2011)

“This guy is smoking hot right now and this song must go over really well in clubs and bars. It doesn’t hurt that the opening is reminiscent of the Rolling Stones open “G” tuning sound. It ROCKS!”

1. Springsteen (Chief, 2011)

“It reminds me of warm summer nights, sitting around drinking well into the early morning. With this song in the background first you’re humming then by the end singing it because it feels so right for the moment . Then later when you listen to this song it sounds like well a memory like his song talks about”
