Wednesday All American Morning News with Eric Scott
6/13/2012 (Courtesy TheBoot.com) — Big congrats to Eric Church on his second No. 1 song. The singer-songwriter’s “Springsteen” tops the country singles charts this week, a nice followup to his last single, and first-ever chart-topper, “Drink in My Hand.” The North Carolina native co-wrote the current hit with bandmade Jeff Hyde and songwriter Ryan Tyndell.
“The interesting part is it’s a love affair that takes place in an amphitheater between two people,” Eric told The Boot. “It didn’t happen with Springsteen, ironically, it happened with another artist. I went to a concert when I was younger with a girl, and 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.”
