In 2012 Eric Church scored the biggest hit of his career with “Springsteen,” and there are times on his fourth studio album, The Outsiders, when the country outlaw makes like the Boss of Nashville.
Just listen to him come out rocking hard on the title-track first single, a stomping rebel anthem that wants to tear the roof off the honky-tonk.
On another electric-guitar-charged rave-up, “That’s Damn Rock & Roll,” Church gets in the gospel spirit to deliver more righteous, Bruce-esque passion, while “Give Me Back My Hometown,” the nostalgic second single, nods to Springsteen’s “My Hometown.”
But even if Church prefers baseball caps to cowboy hats, some of the best Outsiders moments – from the reflective ballads “Dark Side” and “A Man Who Was Gonna Die Young” to “Cold One,” a beer-swilling breakup song – are firmly rooted in good ol’ country tradition.

Eric Church and wife Katherine welcomed son Boone McCoy this past October, and the country singer says this holiday is filled with many special ‘firsts.’
“There’s not a lot of firsts in your life – first child and first Christmas with him is certainly not something I’m going to miss,” the ‘Guys Like Me’ singer says. “We’re gonna be in North Carolina with my family. I just look forward to relaxing and enjoying our first Christmas at home and can’t wait.”
But Eric says he’s already making tour plans for 2012 – that include Boone’s first experience as a tour groupie. “[At the] same time, I can’t wait to dial it back up next year. We’re gonna take him on the road, so it’ll be his first tour,” he says. “So, it’s gonna be a lot of firsts over the next year, and we’re just soaking it in and enjoying every one.”
The new dad seems to be soaking up every minute of his role as a family man. “Everybody always tells you what an awesome and unique experience being a parent is. But words can never do the feeling justice,” Eric gushes. “The way our life changed in that 24-hour period alone after he was born – just by putting a little boy in the house – was awesome.”
