Spin Cover Story: Eric Marks His Territory

Spin.com takes an inside look at Eric's writing process for The Outsiders. "The original plan was to shoot guns or ride four-wheelers (or both, simultaneously), but instead, we have gathered here today on Eric Church's land to watch one of country music's biggest and/or baddest superstars spread deer musk on trees. This was his idea — his way of fulfilling the Manly Activity requirement of our time together." Read more at spin.com

"The Outsiders" on SPIN's 50 Best Songs of 2013

Welp, this guy gets to do whatever the hell he wants now, so please enjoy a full Black Sabbath album distilled down to 60 seconds at the end of this fantastically standoffish backwoods-metal ode to an outsider status he's way, way, way too industry-anointed to actually claim anymore, but that's what makes Eric Church just the best. This sounds hilarious on country radio. Yearbook quote: "The players gonna play / And the haters gonna hate / And a regulator's born to regulate!" Next stop is the East Side Motel. R.H.

Eric Church: The Billboard Cover Story

With "The Outsiders," due in February, Church is bringing his harder-rocking country sound to the next level. "It's important for the health of the format that we all don't follow the leader, that we branch out" Eric's putting the finishing touches on his fourth album, "The Outsiders," which is due Feb. 11 on EMI Records Nashville. Church was already at the vanguard of contemporary country's rock movement, but The Outsiders blurs the lines even further. The first single, the title track, contains even more of the rough electric guitar and big booming drums that define Church's live shows. It's dark and loud, and without the North Carolina accent in Church's vocals it might find itself in between Kings of Leon and Linkin Park on rock radio. But its rebel attitude ("We saddle 'em up and ride in the pouring rain/We're the junkyard dogs, we're the alley cats") and the twang in the vocals put it squarely in the world of country music. Like a modern-day Lynyrd Skynyrd, Church…
