Eric Church Explores Young Love Lost in ‘Round Here Buzz’ Video

 

Eric Church brings the next chapter in the life of his character Mr. Misunderstood in the new music video for “Round Here Buzz.”

In the clip, the country singer is shown roaming through a small town between shots of a couple’s high school love story. After a mix tape brings them together, they go down their own paths and find themselves missing each other years later. But with one person in the city and another back in their small town, will their paths ever cross again? Watch it all unravel in the video above.

“Round Here Buzz” was penned by writers Church, Luke Dick and Jeff Hyde. The video once again features Rochester, New York high schooler Mickey Smay, who was picked to represent “Mr. Misunderstood.” He’s featured on the album’s cover, as well as the song’s video. It’s a cool way of showing the theme and narrative of the record, which has been praised as one of his career best.

Church is also up for Male Vocalist of the Year, Entertainer of the Year and Musical Event of the Year for “Kill A Word” at the 2017 CMA Awards airing live on Nov. 8.

“Round Here Buzz” Lyrics:

Another Friday night
There’s a line of cars leaving
Home team’s got an out-of-towner
Me, I’m sitting on the hood of mine drinking
I’m just a parking lot down-and-outer

Under that high school bleacher
I drove that preacher’s daughter crazy
Her mama was my homeroom teacher
And her dad was hell bent on saving me

Yeah, I’m sure there’s higher highs
Where the high risers rise
But me, I’m gonna sit right here tonight, and

Catch me a ’round here buzz
Cause you ain’t ’round here none
Keep putting ’em down here, ‘nother round here
‘Til my down goes up
Lit up like that one stoplight
Across from that welcome sign
Ever since you caught that out there bug
I catch me a ’round here buzz

I never had big-city eyes
Hell, I’ve never been east of Dallas
Got no idea where you are now
Or if you ever got that penthouse palace

No, Scotty’s ain’t got no vibe
Got no gas in his neon light
But he’s got two-for-one ’til 2:00 tonight

Catch me a ’round here buzz
Cause you ain’t ’round here none
Keep putting ’em down here, ‘nother round here
‘Til my down goes up
Lit up like that one stoplight
Across from that welcome sign
Ever since you caught that out there bug
I catch me a ’round here buzz

Catch me a ’round here buzz
Cause you ain’t ’round here none
Keep putting ’em down here, ‘nother round here
‘Til my down here
Is lit up like that one stoplight
Across from that welcome sign
Ever since you caught that out there bug
I catch me a ’round here buzz
I catch me a ’round here buzz
‘Round here buzz
I catch me a ’round here buzz
