Eric Church’s Desperate Man debuts at Number One on the Billboard Country Albums chart with sales of 116,000 units (comprised of albums, track downloads and over 14 million audio on-demand streams). With Desperate Man, Eric tells us he tried a new creative path to getting these chart-topping results. “It was an interesting creative process. This record was made more in the studio, from writing to completion, then any record we have ever made. I think maybe it was the first album in our career that there was more creative energy in the studio than any other, because it was all written, made, conceived, it was all there. I mean, on ‘The Snake,’ for example, that background part was myself, Jeff Hyde and Joanna, and we tried to sound the old blues kind of sound. We were doing that creatively in the studio, and it made a really interesting thing. A lot of people say, ‘Who sang that? who is that?’ Well, it was us! We were feeling the creativity.”
Eric sits inside the Top 15 on the country singles charts with the album's title track.
He will kick off his 2019 Double Down tour on January 18th and 19th in Omaha, Nebraska.
