Coming off one of his most important singles of his career (with "Kill a Word"), Eric Church refocuses his attention to notching another chart hit with "Round Here Buzz," a cut from his latest album, 2015's Mr. Misunderstood. The track also follows such radio staples as the title track and the massive Grammy-nominated "Record Year."
"It's a song that I kind of had the chorus to [and] I had the idea of where I was going with the first verse. I sat down with Jeff [Hyde] and Luke [Dike]. We changed it some and tweaked it some," Church said in a behind-the-song featurette. "The biggest thing for me...is the song just needed to be played. I felt like it had been kind of written and had been boxed in a little bit with everybody saying 'it's a hit song.' The soul of the song was just us playing it."
Church's 2017 Holdin' My Own Tour, which does not include an opener, continues tonight (March 28) with a show at the Talking Sticks Resort Arena in Phoenix, Ariz. and stretches through early summer. Check out the remaining tour dates here.
