Eric Church Shoots ‘Springsteen’ Video in Tennessee Neighborhood
Earlier this week, Eric Church and his band set out to film a video for Church’s ‘Springsteen,’ the third single from his Grammy-nominated record, ‘Chief.’ The country hitmaker officially released the single at the beginning of this year, and now he’s working on the music video to accompany it. But for the filming, he didn’t block off Broadway in Nashville or rent out the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. In fact, according to CMTT, Church was spotted shooting the video in a neighborhood setting in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
The video shoot went until the early hours of the morning, wrapping around midnight, and we’re left wondering what the video’s premise will be, since Church reportedly let all the neighborhood kids in for on-camera cameos as well. CMTT, who was on site, did reveal that Church’s camp had a piano set up in the middle of the street and an incredible band playing behind the beloved country talent.
Church’s star is certainly on the rise. The singer recently celebrated his first No.1 hit with his song ‘Drink in My Hand’ from his January 2012 record, ‘Chief.’ Church co-wrote the song with famed Nashville writers Luke Laird and Michael Heeney and celebrated the momentous occasion with a No.1 party at BMI in Nashville.
While ‘Drink in My Hand’ is a feel-good country anthem about having a good time, ‘Springsteen’ has a different tone altogether, with a slightly less anthemic chorus and a more unconventional country feel. The single is currently sitting at No.23 on the Billboard Country Songs chart. We’ll have to wait and see what kind of video Church and his team come up with for this nostalgic song about memories and July Saturday nights.
