Springsteen Is a Fan of ‘Springsteen’

Gino DePinto, The Boot

Eric Church‘s chart-topping “Springsteen” has gotten the ultimate stamp of approval: Bruce Springsteen himself is a fan of the song. The iconic rocker’s management team told the country star their boss has heard the song and loved it.

“Hell, it made me feel incredible. I’m such a huge fan,” Eric tells ABC News Radio.

“Springsteen” was inspired by a date the singer-songwriter had many years ago. He took a girl to a concert — ironically not a Bruce Springsteen concert, though he won’t reveal who the performer was — and still thinks of his former crush when he hears that artist.

“It’s a love affair that takes place in an amphitheater between two people,” Eric tells The Boot. “To this day, when I hear that artist, it’s the soundtrack to that girl. I never think about her any other time, except when that song is on. That’s where the ‘Springsteen’ came from, and he seemed to be the perfect guy to craft that story around because of my love for him … I have such a reverence for Bruce Springsteen‘s career and how he’s built it.”
