Congrats to Eric Church – he’s hit number-1 on the country airplay chart with “Hell Of A View.”
This is Eric’s 10th chart topper – and the song comes from his Heart & Soul triple album…specifically the Soul project.
Eric shares the story behind the song, “So, ‘Hell of a View’ – we were in the mountains of North Carolina and we would write a song the same day. We’d record the song that night, which is an incredibly hard thing to do and do it well. I came back one day from a jog, my manager was there, a few people walked into the room and Casey Beathard, the co-writer on this song, was working on something. And I remember walking in, and I remember he had reading glasses on and he pulled ‘em down and he looked at me and he goes, ‘This is good. Listen to this.’ And he started, ‘I was no Daddy’s dream’ you know, the whole deal, the whole song…and he got to the Bronco, ‘smoke my Bronco tires’ line, and I went, ‘This is really good.’ So, we wrote that song that day and the next day.”
