What Critics Have To Say About 'The Outsiders'

The Outsiders Album Review Notable Quotes “. . . not just the most consistent male country star of his generation but one of the brightest lights in any genre.” --Jody Rosen, New York MagazineThe Outsiders, is, in keeping with the pattern, his best yet; it’s also his most blustery, with the guitars and the outlaw swagger turned up, as the poet said, to eleven.” --Jody Rosen, New York Magazine “He's the most exciting, sonically fearless singer in Nashville.” – Rob Harvilla, SPIN (February cover story) “The guy who hates the term "outlaw" and still gets it all the time. The guy whose imminent fourth album, The Outsiders, is so audacious and sprawling and electrifying and ridiculous that he almost convinces you he still is one. The guy even people who don't like country like; the guy everyone else loves, unless he has (inadvertently, he would insist) insulted you personally, which is always possible. The guy so divisive he's a uniter.” – Rob Harvilla, SPIN

Spin Cover Story: Eric Marks His Territory

Spin.com takes an inside look at Eric's writing process for The Outsiders. "The original plan was to shoot guns or ride four-wheelers (or both, simultaneously), but instead, we have gathered here today on Eric Church's land to watch one of country music's biggest and/or baddest superstars spread deer musk on trees. This was his idea — his way of fulfilling the Manly Activity requirement of our time together." Read more at spin.com
