Eric Church is having a hell of a week with “Hell of a View” being the most added song to country radio.

Eric Church and His Hit

Church’s single is climbing the charts and being added to countless radio stations. The song was written by Church alongside Casey Beathard and Monty Criswell. The single talks about chasing your passions instead of worrying about money.

“We were in North Carolina in the mountains, and when I came back in from a jog Casey immediately started playing the first part of the song he’d been working on with Monty,” Church said in a press release. “He had the line ‘caught your wings on fire when I smoked my Bronco tires out of that town,’ and I just thought that was such a great line. I was smitten with it, so we finished it and then recorded it that night. I knew it was pretty special when it went down, because it felt like a big hit but at the same time it has that timeless quality to it.”

“Hell Of A View” follows up Church’s string of new releases. “Stick That In Your Country Song,” “Bad Mother Trucker,” “Crazyland,” and “Through My Ray-Bans” have all quickly become fan favorites. His tribe is now gearing up for his next project.

The 2020 CMA Awards

Church is set to perform at the 2020 CMA Awards on Wednesday (November 11) on ABC. He will be performing his latest climbing single. The country hitmaker is nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year and the coveted Entertainer of the Year.

This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the awards show is taking place at Music City Center in Nashville. Roughly sixty percent of the awards and performances will be live while the other forty percent will be pre-recorded pieces. Instead of the typical fan audience, the artists and their guests will be acting as the live audience. Each group will be seated eight feet apart and adhere to health and safety measures.
