Eric Church Drops New Song Same Day as Tour News

Along with news about his upcoming tour, Church also dropped a new single today, “Lynyrd Skynyrd Jones.” Church wrote the song with Case Beathard as a song for the Soul part of his record.

The song is about a boy named Lynyrd Skynyrd Jones, a nod to his mother’s favorite band. Lynyrd is a biracial boy who discovers music at the age of 13. He begins wondering about his father’s identity but his mother won’t reveal any details. It’s not until the last line of the song that we discover the identity of Lynyrd’s father. No spoilers here! All we’ll say is that Lynyrd Skynyrd fans will be delighted by the song’s references.

During an interview, Church talked about how he decided which songs were worthy of the album.

“I am the hardest critic on making sure every song deserves to be on the record,” said Church. “And I beat this thing to death going, ‘This can’t be that good.’ But it was just a special, special time, and a special, special project that I think will be among our best.”
