Facts about Eric Church
Eric Church Biography
Country music star Eric Church is known as the bad boy who did the hit songs “Smoke a Little Smoke” and “Drink in My Hand.”
He got his first record contract in 2005 and cracked the charts in 2006, but it wasn’t until his 2009 album Carolina that Church earned wide notice. That album produced his first top ten single, “Love Your Love the Most,” as well as “Smoke a Little Smoke” and “Hell on the Heart.” Church followed up with Chief, the 2011 album that included “Homeboy” and “Springsteen” and his most famous party anthem, “Drink in My Hand.”
With 2014’s The Outsiders, Church was a bona fide country star of the “outlaw” stripe — a Willie Nelson or Waylon Jennings for modern times. “Talladega” and “Give Me Back My Hometown” were popular radio singles in 2015 he had another number one hit with Keith Urban, “Raise ‘Em Up.”
Already the star of the country music awards shows, Church released a super-secret-surprise album in late 2015, Mr. Misunderstood, in time for the Academy of Country Music Awards, winning video of the year for the title track.
