Eric Church Releases New Single 'Record Year'

(EBM) Eric Church has released the second single "Record Year" from his surprise album 'Mr. Misunderstood' and shares the country star's story of finding comfort from a broken heart in a three-foot stack of vinyl records. We were sent over the following details.

The lyrics name-checks Stevie Wonder's Songs In The Key of Life, Willie Nelson's Red Headed Stranger, John Lee Hooker's One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer among others from Church's stack of vinyl.

Here are some of the lyrics, "Your leavin' left me goin' crazy, I'm countin' on a needle to save me / I drop it in the groove, And we go 'round and 'round, And down in a spiral / I guess I really oughta call and thank you, I rediscovered Red Headed Stranger / Got down with old James Brown, And found New Grass Revival / If you find your way back, I owe you a beer, For my record year"

Church co-wrote "Record Year" with longtime banjo player and guitarist Jeff Hyde who has previously collaborated on hits such as the three-week No. 1 "Springsteen" (along with Ryan Tyndell) from the ACM and CMA Album of the Year Chief and the anthematic Top 20 "Smoke a Little Smoke" (written by Church and Hyde alongside other bandmate Driver Williams) from 2009's Carolina. Fans can stream the new single here.
