Eric Church is obviously a huge fan of Bruce Springsteen , but you won't find him talking about politics and endorsing candidates like The Boss does. Eric feels that sharing political opinions is something that's up to each individual artist, and it's just not for him.
"That's just my personal thing and probably because I don't even know where I would try to fall," Eric tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette about his political leanings. "People keep talking about this election coming down to independent voters -- that's who I am. I'm there."
Eric's independent streak can be heard in his latest release, Chief , which last week was named CMA Album of the Year. Eric's latest left-of-center hit, "Creepin'" is now climbing the country chart.
