Eric Church’s ‘Some of It’ and Four More New Songs You Need to Hear
This week, country stars kicked off 2019 in the best way possible: With new music, of course! From breakup songs to rockin' party anthems to emotional declarations of love, there's a new song for everyone this week. Read on to check 'em out!
Eric Church, "Some of It":
Eric Church has selected “Some of It” as the latest single from his newest album, Desperate Man. In the reflective song, Church thinks about the lessons he’s learned and the knowledge he’s gained while navigating life. "Some of it, you learn the hard of it / Some of it, you read on a page / Some of it comes from heartbreak / Most of it comes with age / And none of it ever comes easy ..." he sings in the new track. “Some of It” was written by Church alongside Jeff Hyde, Clint Daniels and Bobby Pinson; the song, impacting on Jan. 14, was produced by Jay Joyce.
Kane Brown, "Good as You":
Kane Brown’s latest single, “Good as You,” is a love song about aspiring to be the best version of yourself for the sake of your partner, and the song's accompanying music video was inspired by his own real-life wedding. “I just wanna wake up every day here in this bed / Never leave 'I love you' left unsaid,” sings Brown. “It might take a hundred lifetimes to do / But, baby, I just wanna be good as you.” “Good as You” is Brown’s second single from his latest release, Experiment; the song was written by Brown, Robert Brock Berryhill, Shy Carter, Taylor Phillips and William Bradford Weatherly.
Ryan Hurd, "Michigan for the Winter":
Ryan Hurd's "Michigan for the Winter" is about trying to get over heartbreak by opting for a change of scenery. In the heartfelt song, Hurd sings about heading back north to wait out his pain, while he tries to get his ex out of his mind. He still holds onto hope that his girl will take him back, however: “Just in case you want to change your mind / I’m letting you know where you can find me / 46th Street, that first turn / Down the dirt road, watching that wood stove burn,” he sings.
Ross Ellis, "Barefoot Dancer":
Singer-songwriter Ross Ellis has shared an emotional new song called “Barefoot Dancer.” The sweet track uses the cliché “Always a bridesmaid, never a bride” as a lonely example to explain that, although it might seem as though it is taking forever, everyone’s time for love will come. “When most people are ogling the bride at a wedding, I like to study those closest to them: their friends and family,” explains Ellis in a press release. “In those moments, I find myself imagining what’s going on in their minds, from their perspective. Those are the stories I want to hear. Those are the hearts I want to help mend, because in the happiest of settings, you can still sense the loneliness.” Adds Ellis, “There’s a great love out there for each of us -- we just need to remember to lean in and be vulnerable sometimes, in songwriting and in life.” “Barefoot Dancer” was written by Ellis, Dan Fernandez and Rob Crosby.
William Michael Morgan, "Workin'":
William Michael Morgan’s "Workin'" is about putting in hard work both outside the house and inside it -- if you catch our drift. “I first heard this song while traveling through Mexico, and it immediately struck a chord,” Morgan says in a press release. “It was just a rough work tape, but I saw those pictures. I saw the guy out there working and the girl with her feet up, drinking some red wine and waiting on me to call quitting time.” “Workin’” was written by Bart Butler, Aaron Goodvin, Driver Williams and Brett Tyler.
