Eric Church Slows Things Down With ‘Like a Wrecking Ball’ at the 2015 CMT Music Awards
Eric Church was probably the coolest-looking guy at the 2015 CMT Music Awards. Let's be honest -- he always looks good, but in fitted blue jeans, a black leather jacket and his trademark aviators, Church delivered "Like a Wrecking Ball" in top style.
The singer unabashedly says that the song is about sex, and if fans didn't realize it before listening, they'd definitely realize after they heard it. The lyrics are ... well, pretty obvious: “That whole house is gonna be shakin’ / I hope those bricks and boards can take it,” Church sings. “But I won’t be surprised / If the whole damn place just falls / Wanna rock you, baby, like a wrecking ball.”
The acoustic-driven tune is a nice detour from Church's more rock-based songs, and one of his most constant songwriting collaborators, Casey Beathard, wrote it him. Beathard also contributed to other songs on The Outsiders, including ”That’s Damn Rock & Roll,” “Devil, Devil (Prelude: Princess of Darkness),” “The Joint” and the album’s title track.
Church is up for Male Video of the Year, for "Talladega," at this year's awards. In addition to performing at the show, his is on his 2015 The Outsiders World Tour, which kicked off its most recent leg on March 4 and has select dates scheduled until August.
