I promoted J.P. Harris instead of Eric Church a week and a half ago, but I don’t want Church’s good work in the mainstream to go unrecognized. I like to poke fun, but he makes music as good as anyone in mainstream country today (a low bar, to be sure).
I normally pay very little attention to the videos for these posts, but I picked Desperate Man in part because I really like the video. Even the do do dos, so questionable musically, complement the 70s/80s gangster movie feel of the video. (And, yes, a fine musical effort by Church is once again married to overweening self-regard. The mockery continues apace.)
Desperate Man is the title track off Church’s newest album.
