Eric Church’s “Springsteen” has taken over the top spot on both the Mediabase/Country Aircheck and Billboard country charts. The song is Eric’s second number-one single, following “Drink in My Hand” – marking back-to-back chart-toppers. Both “Springsteen” and “Drink in My Hand” is from his nearly platinum-selling album, Chief.
Eric says every time he performs “Springsteen,” he remembers his first concert at an amphitheater when he was 16. “I can remember spreading that blanket down, and I can still see the faces of the people that were there with me; I still remember what the weather was like; I can still remember what the air smelled like, what the sky looked like,” he recalls. “And I think the great thing about that song – you always try to write music and record music that sparks a memory, and there’s a line in the song – ‘Funny how a melody sounds like a memory.’ That’s exactly what ‘Springsteen’ is for me, and I hope that that’s what it’s for for everybody out there.”
Church is not only celebrating a number-one single with “Springsteen,” but he also recently scored his FIRST Platinum-Selling Single, as well. “It’s pretty surreal to me that it’s a platinum single and sold a million copies. And it’s a testament to everybody out there that feels kinda the way I did,” says Eric. “It’s been one of those songs that really transported you back to a place and a time, and I’m glad we get to go out there and sing it every night.”
Eric will definitely be performing “Springsteen” when he hits the road during the fall leg of his Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour, kicking off September 13th in Amherst, Massachusetts.
