The Two Songs Eric Church Wants Back

His "Friendly" Singles From 2009

This Friday (Sept. 18), the Eric Church exhibit will open at Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. It’s an honor he’s earned in the nearly ten years since making his debut album Sinners Like Me.

But back in 2009, things weren’t all that rosy for Church.

“The label was wanting us to put out stuff that was friendlier, and we tried that,” Church told Paste magazine of the two singles he released from his second album Carolina. “There (are) two songs in my career that I’d like to have back: ‘Love Your Love The Most’ and ‘Hell On the Heart.’ Both of them were my attempt to try to get something in the Top 10 and see what happened. And we got both of ‘em in the Top 10, and nothing happened.”

Then there was “Smoke a Little Smoke.” That one made things happen, and the fans seemed to love that side of Church.
