Eric Church Performs Talladega On Fallon

(Radio.com) Eric Church gets nostalgic on his new single "Talladega" off his album The Outsiders - and while he has asserted that the song has nothing to do with NASCAR, his performance last night on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon explains just this.

Dressed in jeans, a black shirt and his signature shades, Church reminisces about the "summer before the real world started" on the slower ballad. "We were laughing and living, drinking and wishing and thinking as that checkered flag was waving / Sure like to stay in Talladega," he sings alongside acoustic guitar.

Church told Billboard.biz that the song has nothing to do with auto-racing. "It's really about life," he told the publication. "What you see on TV there has nothing to do really with racing. It's about that experience, whatever that is: the experience with the person next to you, and knowing that that's probably a finite time in your life. It's not gonna last forever."
