Eric Church’s ‘Springsteen’ Locks in No. 1 Slot for Second Consecutive Week
Eric Church has reason to celebrate again this week, as his latest hit, ‘Springsteen,’ remains at No. 1 on both the Billboard and Mediabase / Country Aircheck country singles chart.
‘Springsteen’ is the third single from Church’s latest album ‘Chief,’ following ‘Homeboy’ and his previous chart-topper ‘Drink in My Hand.’ Church penned the tune with one of his bandmates Jeff Hyde, and songwriter Ryan Tyndell. Since its release, ‘Springsteen’ has been a fan favorite, as well as one of Church’s favorite tunes from the project.
“It’s very haunting and cool,” Church recently told Taste of Country. “We started painting this picture with the song. I’ve always wanted to do a song about the experience that fans have and that I had myself, on the lawn at an amphitheater at a concert.”
Tailing Church on the charts this week are Luke Bryan‘s smash single ‘Drunk on You’ (No. 2), Brantley Gilbert‘s power-ballad ‘You Don’t Know Her Like I Do’ (No. 3), the Eli Young Band‘s ‘Even If It Breaks Your Heart’ (No. 4) and Tim McGraw‘s ‘Better Than I Used to Be’ (No. 5). Dierks Bentley, Toby Keith, Gloriana and Kenny Chesney round out the rest of the Top 10 with their latest singles.
