“Springsteen” RIAA-Certified Platinum; Debut Album, Sinners Like Me, Certified Gold

Nashville,
TN – His arena-headlining “The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour,” has sold
over 450,000 tickets thus far in 2012, and now Eric Church finds his third single, “Springsteen,” from critically-acclaimed record, CHIEF,
topping the charts at No. 1.  His prior single, “Drink In My Hand,”
marked his first career No. 1 record; both songs were co-writes for
Church.  In addition, “Springsteen” also celebrates over one million in
sales this week, officially reaching RIAA Platinum certification as his
debut album, Sinners Like Me, reaches Gold status selling over 500,000 copies worldwide.

SPIN Magazine  named CHIEF their
No. 1 Country Album of 2011 and “The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour” a
Top 20 tour of 2012: “Church offers that rarest of combos — impeccable
songwriting and musicianship, plus genuine ornery attitude, and his
anthemic, Boss-inspired can of corn, ‘Springsteen,’ is the finest
addition to the doomed exurban-bandana-romance catalog since Steve
Earle’s I Feel Alright rebirth.” Rolling Stone
said, “Name-checking “Born to Run” and “I’m on Fire,” the tough North
Carolina country singer pays tribute to the Garden State’s greatest
rocker – and the memories of teenage romance his songs evoke.” American Songwriter
added, “It’s about music in general, and the singular ability a pop
song has to anchor us to a place and time, no matter how fleeting or
carelessly discarded that moment may have been. Which is the genius of
“Springsteen,” really.”  Maxim proclaimed, “If the American flag could sing, it’d probably sound like this” when referring to the hit. 

Church penned the song with bandmate Jeff Hyde, who also co-wrote his hit “Smoke A Little Smoke,” and Nashville songwriter Ryan Tyndell.  The record was produced by Jay Joyce and has earned 2012 ACM and GRAMMY nominations.

Church,
who made his LP Field debut appearance at CMA Music Fest on Saturday
night, announced his fall leg of “The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour”
last week with special guests Justin Moore and Kip Moore. Stay tuned to www.ericchurch.com for all details.
