Eric Church’s Unlikely Role In Jurassic World

Actor Chris Pratt Find Peace Songwriter “dark side”

There is a great song Outsiders Eric Church’s album called “dark side”.

He wrote with Travis Meadows and Jeremy Spillman. It is one of those ballads that haunt all can relate to: how is probably done some things you’re not proud, so try to keep it secret.

Pratt told GQ one of the ways you have already received the character for this new film was listening to that song a church and another. His mantra before his scenes was, “core flow without TC, volume up point five, Eric Church.”

The part of the mantra Church reminded Pratt on his own dark side, with lyrics like: “I have a wife and have a child who does not know half the things I’ve done / and I pray that’s the way it is maintained / and that’s why my dark side do not ever see the light of day.”

Fun fact about Pratt: There always seems to be an element of music in their leading roles. Especially on television. His character Parks and Recreation Shine Andy Dwyer was a singer on the side, and when he was on The OC, played Che, who liked to play the guitar naked Summer (Rachel Bilson).

Eric Church, Dierks Bentley And More Share Their NYE Hangover Cure

If anyone knows how to have fun, we are the people of the country!

From all of us will probably nursing a hangover on New Year, we estimate that we will let you in on some of your favorite stars of the countries’ best kept secrets surf through Capitol Records Nashville.
2014 iHeartRadio Music Festival - Night 2 - Show

Canaan Smith:
“There is no cure for hangovers. The older I get, I’m like, ‘Oh, my God. What am I thinking?” It’s terrible. Hangovers are horrible. Tequila is the worst. I try to stay away from Tequila, because it hurts badly. I used to be a type of whiskey – I’m still from time to time, but in recent times, am, American domestic beer just – just something light and tasty. Vaccines are my worst enemy. When I start working shots in the table, when I know I will hurt the next morning. I just try to keep it the same, in the case of whiskey or beer or whatever, I just stick with the same drink all night, you know? ”

Dierks Bentley:
“I think the first of January is universally accepted as a dog. So I mean, a little hair of the dog, I guess. But just … the water and stay on the couch, I guess. There is no real cure for that infallible “.

Eric Church:
“The best cure for a hangover – I have two one is 5-Hour Energy [bottles] because of all the B vitamins that are in it you can start hitting those, and it’s either going to work or going to… Keep the reader and prolong their misery But the one that I have is just take two Advil and a beer in the morning Hair of the Dog, man -… It works every time. ”

If you want to go the route without alcohol, there is nothing you can do for hangovers. You just have to go far with him. ”

Kacey Musgraves:
“Coconut water is a major help with hangovers and often go and eat Vietnamese fuh. It is a soup, and has this amazing broth. You can get different things on it or whatever, but for some reason, it’s like … it’s almost like a chicken soup with noodles kind of an idea, you know, but it’s good. That’s good for hangovers too. That, sleep, Tylenol, coconut water and only water in general. And when you are drinking, have your alcohol, drink some water, drink more alcohol, and drink some water. “

In July, Nielsen SoundScan released its sales figures by mid-year. The best selling 2.7 million records, the album was the soundtrack to the animated film “Frozen”. Second, selling nearly two million fewer copies was self-titled album Beyoncé. Third, it is not far behind, Eric Church was “The Outsiders,” released in February. At No. 7 was “Crash My Party.”


Luke Bryan If you read about all the mainstream press, or independent survey websites like Pitchfork, or if you’re just out of touch with the movements of pop stars Nashville, you could be forgiven for not knowing who these guys are. Bryan and Church are both pushing forty, and have released five albums each. They are neither teenagers nor grizzled veterans, but they are perfect examples of how Nashville has built a model for the pop song, with its verse-chorus-bridge architecture standard, which has lasted longer than the other genres that have traditionally used the form.

Until recently, country music was seen as the music stylistically retrograde-conservative conservative states. But the truth is more complicated. In the nineties, Garth Brooks was mixing stadium rock songs in their country. He was also singing about gay rights, something that took a Top Ten rapper to do two decades.

In 2000, when pop stars were unlikely to write songs about domestic violence, the Dixie Chicks Top Twenty scored a hit with “Goodbye Earl,” a cheerfully ruthless narrative about two friends who poison an abusive husband. And Taylor Swift is one of many artists from the countries that incorporate caps hip-hop and R & B in their live performances, a favor which is often not returned by their peers in other genres. Country refuses to die because it is not particularly specialized-that is an ecumenical church that supports all stakeholders.

Church and Bryan, like almost everyone under forty who currently works in Nashville, only a few items need to be noted that countries before they are other things: one, half vowel accent, South trend and a emphasis on realistic narrative. Acoustic guitars are common in the catalogs of both artists, but not more than the work of many indie-rock musicians. When Eric Church Talladega sings about in the song of the same name, “The Outsiders,” which could confirm the idea that the country is destined to Nascar Nation.

The song mentions whiskey and one of the most famous race tracks of Nascar, and has a nostalgia for the recent past that seems endemic in the country: “We laugh and live, drink and wishing and thinking, as the checkered flag waved, insurance would like to stay in Talladega “But music is both classic rock and country.; several solos are hidden behind even tenor of the Church.

The title track reveals how porous the borders between countries and genders are incorporating. The song opens with finger-picked guitar arpeggios that sound more like Dire Straits Mark Knopfler who like the crack of a traditional flat picking guitar player disk. Several waves of majestic hitting guitar chords and choruses of “oooh ooh Whooah” gathered monitoring. The music is not completely aligned with lyrics like “Our women are hot, and when our skin is stained saddle and rode in the pouring rain. We are the junkyard that stray cats are dogs; keep the wind at our front, and hell in the back.

“Melody feels more like” We Will Rock You “than Johnny Cash. Around 3’15 “, there is an instrumental part two bars face off against one another, it could have been raised from the progressive rock band Yes, and then the song builds to a crescendo that jumps forward a decade, sounding like a bridge early Metallica record. Cowboy hats have become camouflage. Whatever, more or less, you can go on a country album if you play well and do not use abstract images.

Bryan and Church are two star-type normal intermittently scruffy and not given to a stage of signature or video equipment. Church is more complex narrative material, while Bryan sticks to tales of the good life that rest comfortably in an album titled “Crash My Party.” One of the songs emotionally shadier Church’s “Homeboy” (2011).

Accompanied largely by acoustic guitars, leaving mostly bravado aside, the Church sings to a family member who seems to be culturally mixed up: “You were too bad for a small town square with his hat hip-hop and pants on the floor “the skirts of characters with the law, while the Church plays in the title word and sings the praises of a traditional life problem.” is no shame in forty workers, house, toddlers, little story of small town. If you ever do anything for me, do it for me, brother-let’s go home, boy.

“Their main argument is” we both know who you are. “If this sounds vaguely conservative or even a bit racist, it is impressive that the Church sings about the clash of cultures at all. His tendency to discuss domesticity and the family unit does not exclude all variations of these options may incur, giving his version of a more comprehensive social country look that many expect. In Nashville, at its best, observation trumps preaching.

Bryan’s new single is especially free in style-the song could have bounced between Atlanta and New York conference before returning to Music Row. “Roller Coaster” on a summer adventure, is a degree of regional inflection removed to be a hit for almost any pop star: One Direction, P nk, Bruno Mars. The chorus ends with a classic explainer Nashville, making sure no loose metaphors is released into the world. “I have known that kind of feeling would last longer than that week not impressed and hardly breathing He arrived on Sunday, and that’s .

Now she’s got me twisted like an old rollercoaster beach “Bryan sings higher and with less accent Church.; in “Roller Coaster”, composers Michael Carter and Cole Swindell leaving the commercial target of making a song that suits a video of attractive young contemporaries, but it works, when heard and not seen as the kind of nostalgia that could be about 1969 summer as easily as on 2014.

Eric Church On Scalpers, Bro-Country And Blake Shelton Scandal

Read highlights of the interviews behind our cover story, on stands now

Eric Church shares the cover of the first issue, Rolling Stone Country (on shelves now) with Miranda Lambert, openness about almost being arrested at the ACM Awards, getting pranked by Brad Paisley, Bruce Springsteen met and becoming a father. But there is much more that could not fit into the story – so here’s the rebel Nashville on everything from your attitude and you’re writing process to faux scandals Blake Shelton and Taylor Swift:

Everyone told the chief was the greatest record ever do. [They said] “Even reenter never beat that.” I used a lot of that as fuel: “Okay, motherfuckers know me you think this is all, but can be much more creative, we can be much more out there.” And I saw other artists trying to follow what we were doing. I thought that after the record head, which stopped in the middle and I became one of the guys that were the focus of the format. And I hated that, because I feel that we did our best work from the outside of it. With the title of the album and we were trying to do, I wanted to go there. And I think, musically, I got there.

The stigma is that the country is not cool. That is wrong. Country is very cool. I watch award shows, I watch country represents. Country is represented with an asterisk. We have to do collaborations. We have to make a tribute. We cannot make ourselves. Country music right now is the most popular format in America. The most popular! Look entries, you can see on album sales, which is the format.

It is feeling good. It is a bit shallower than it was a few years ago -. “Let us drink, forget our worries, beach bonfire Lake” is When something works, everyone falls into a pattern. One thing I miss is turning on the radio and I only have one song punch in the stomach and, as a composer, I call my ass. And I think it could use more of that.

“Guys like Me” [off 2006 LP Church Sinners like me] have a guy who drinks too many beers. That was before anyone had ever put beer and truck related songs. Now, it’s in every song. That song was never just gone Top 10 Top 20 This is because it was too driven guy -… That kind of wine country during period “soccer mom”. There were no men in country music at the time in the world of radio, and suffered. And it’s funny now to look that song; every song is much like now.

What I like to get out on the sands, an hour before the doors and run the competition. And you get that anticipation. You smell like popcorn. You see people tapping the barrels. And no one is still there but you, but you feel. It’s my favorite thing in the tour.

It drives me fucking crazy. For our [next] Minneapolis show, 900 tickets that scalpers were identified. The building went back and looked and found that deep, 200 tickets went back to a credit card. So when they realized that they had already sold a lot of tickets for fans of the astronomical prices. And we decided just to go and cancel and let the fans know and start over.

It is a systemic problem with the music, it really is. Right now, in Omaha, you can get Ticket Exchange and pay $ 200 for any ticket you want in Omaha. Not true. They are taking the money and are not even for sale. There are no tickets on sale yet. [Note: This interview was conducted before the tickets went on events.] Do not really have them – they are promising that can get them.

It’s a fucking scam is what it is. It is the mafia. The price of some entries in Minneapolis right now is $ 1,200, and the price for Madison Square Garden is $ 800. This is stupid. Not until solveable illegal. If an amateur contacting at 10 am has the same opportunity as a reseller you get in at 10 am, I’m fine. The problem I have is that resellers have a bazillion people who work for them. And have those robots that scan. So it’s not fair.

Eric Church Brings His Own Surprise Performer To Star-Packed CMT Awards

Most artists promote their latest single awards. No Eric Church. Mainstream country hardest rocker is taking a different approach.

Church invited Lzzy Hale of Halestorm to appear with him on Wednesday night at the CMT Music Awards for a performance of the album track “Damn That’s Rock & Roll” – not his current single or recent No. 1 hit.


” I think it’s an opportunity to do something that is not normally going to do and let him live in that space forever,” Church said. “That’s what I like about them. You can do it once and get the maximum amount of the eyes and goes to live performance as his show forever. Makes sense to do something different. ”

Along with hard- rock mash -up of the Church, Jason Derulo will join Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and unnamed guest to start the show CMT Music Awards, airing live from the Bridgestone Arena in music Network (20:00 EDT).

John Legend will join Jennifer Nettles and Hunter Hayes to perform their No. 1 hit “All of Me” , along with other examples of popular culture cross-pollination .

Miranda Lambert leads all nominees with six, followed by Bryan and FGL with five each, and Taylor Swift and Keith Urban, at four.

While the fans – voted CMT Awards aim to celebrate the genre of country, have been in the field of rock , rap and R & B stars , many of whom , like Lionel Richie, Neil Young, Fall Out Boy, Jason Mraz and OneRepublic all got nominations with major country stars .

That’s also why Hale is on the show. Infatuation with other genres of Country has accelerated in recent years, and the Church has been especially forceful in pushing the limits. “That’s Damn Rock & Roll” is one of the songs from his new album, “The Outsiders ,” which shows the Church seeks the edge of what most fans are willing to accept .

“Honestly I think the industry in general – the rock industry , country , whatever gender you take a fancy to – I think it needs more people like that,” Hale said. “Most people who take risks and are, for lack of a better term, a tough guy and not necessarily directly from the rules is needed. Crossing limits, crossing a few lines of gender. ”

Church said Hale is one of their favorite singers and their music fits with yours. That’s why he invited Hale and Grammy -winning band on tour this summer. Most of this came from nowhere to Hale, who had not complied with the Church until the tests this week.

“I’m kind of what my friend’s call an ambassador of country rock,” Hale said with a laugh.
