Eric Church Debuting New Single at CMA Awards?
It seems as though the rumors that Eric Church is debuting new music at the upcoming CMA Awards may be true.
According to an industry source, Church will be performing the title track from his upcoming album at the awards.
Church has been giving fans hints as to the progress of his new album for months. In May, he started telling fans to “follow the beard,” hinting that when he trims it he will have found the songs for the project. He was clean-shaven after three months. While at Lollapalooza in August, he told Taste of Country that the album was halfway there, and on Oct. 15 he released the mysterious teaser video below, with the caption, “On Oct. 22 you’ll find out just who we are.”
According to on-air talent Broadway from Electric Barnyard, ‘The Outsiders’ is the title song and debut single from Church’s forthcoming album, and is slated for release via iTunes next Tuesday (Oct. 22).
“The video was shot in the old prison South of Nashville, where they shot the ‘Lighting’ video back in 2006,” the site reports. “Church’s manager, John Peets & Church came up with ‘The Outsiders’ theme which you will see in the music, tour next year and over all image/evolution of the Eric Church brand.”
We’ll see what happens on Nov. 6, when the CMA Awards air at 8PM ET on ABC.
