Eric Church’s Grammy Performance of ‘Give Me Back My Hometown’ Proves to Be Revolutionary

Subscribe to Taste of Country on

Eric Church defended hometowns everywhere during his 2015 Grammy performance on Sunday night (Feb. 8). As he sang the subdued ‘Give Me Back My Hometown,’ images of revolutions flashed on the screen behind the sunglasses-sporting singer.

The images didn’t seem to be making a specific statement about recent riots or revolutions. Instead, scenes from revolutions across history were used. During the last half of the song, many scenes were seen in reverse, with police officers in riot gearing backing off and looters making right the buildings they destroyed.

‘Give Me Back My Hometown’ was nominated for two 2015 Grammys, but Church didn’t win either. Glen Campbell‘s ‘I’m Not Gonna Miss You’ took the Best Country Song award, while Carrie Underwood‘s ‘Something in the Water’ took the Country Solo Performance Grammy. Both were named during the Grammys pre-show.

Church’s chart-topping hit is on is platinum ‘The Outsiders’ album. While introducing him, Keith Urban mentioned how Church’s wife Katherine is expecting the couple’s second child at any time. It’s not clear if she made it to the show as planned.
