Eric Church
Church’s sixth studio album, Desperate Man, marks the end of the longest break in his career between putting out new music. It had been three years since he cemented his reputation as a maverick by releasing his 2015 album Mr. Misunderstood as a surprise, delivering it to fans before announcing its existence and putting it on sale.

Church experimented with 25 songs for Desperate Man, the most he had ever recorded for an album. But a sound started to emerge, a common thread he describes as "an electric, raw, old soul sound."

Over his career, Church has earned five ACM Awards and is hoping to add more to his trophy case!
