Biography

Eric Church's songs are as straightforward as he is. His is music that looks its listener in the eye and speaks plainly about the human condition. It's heard in his hit singles "Guys Like Me," "How 'Bout You," "I Love Your Love the Most," "Springsteen," "Like Jesus Does" and "Give Me Back My Hometown." Eric grew up in Granite Falls, N.C. He recalls being 4 years old, standing on a table at a local restaurant, singing "Elvira" to a waitress and a handful of patrons who would reward him with change.

Six months after moving to Nashville, Eric had to take a day job, but six months after that, he was signed to a publishing deal at Sony Tree. Soon he began getting cuts as a songwriter, including Terri Clark's "The World Needs A Drink." Then Arthur Buenahora at Sony Tree introduced Eric to producer Jay Joyce. The two clicked instantly and began cutting demos.

Two days later on his birthday, Eric was in Capitol's office being offered a recording deal; he and Joyce then set about capturing his essence in Joyce's basement studio. The resulting CD launched Eric with a firm identity both musically and lyrically, and gives him his own niche in a diverse country landscape.
