During his annual fan club party at CMA Fest this weekend, Eric Church gave fans a taste of his new music.
With just an acoustic guitar, the “Record Year” singer crooned his heartfelt tune about trying to find the good in the world, no matter what.
“Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, I did what you’re teaching,” Church sings. “But if the world thinks when I turn the other cheek, that it’s a sign of weakness, then you ain’t gonna like what you see from Old Testament me.”
Watch the full live performance below.
Just hours after he shared this new track, Church took the stage at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium to perform for over 60,000 festival-goers. During his set, he opted to skip the new tunes and kept to the hits.
Although Church recently wrapped his record-breaking Holdin’ My Own Tour, he’ll be back on the road in the coming weeks. Along with a handful of festival dates, he’ll play select outdoor amphitheaters with Brothers Osborne and rising artist Ashley McBryde. You can find a full list of his upcoming tour dates here.
