Eric Church Releases Surprise Album 'Mr. Misunderstood'

Country music star Eric Church surprised fans on Wednesday with the release of a surprise album called "Mr. Misunderstood" ahead of his performance at the CMA Awards.

Church announced the new surprise album via a handwritten note that reads, "My son names my guitars. He named the one that would make my 5th album 'Butter Bean'. I've always believed that instruments have stories to tell. Its up to the keeper of the instrument to turn those stories into songs.

"I wrote my first song on 'Butter Bean' late this summer. 20 days later, I had 18 songs. 20 days following that, I had 10 recorded. That was 30 days ago. It always takes me time to look for inspiration to make a new album. This time, inspiration came looking for me. Together, we found Mr. Misunderstood. Today, it's yours."
