There are SOOO many things to love about this!
Eric Church talking about a game that he and his wife used to play. But, not just any game…a drinking game! And not just any drinking game…one involving the King of Country himself!
“You can’t imagine what 60 #1’s are, but what you really can’t imagine are the ones that were not #1’s. We would sit around every night and we would name which songs we thought were #1’s and if it wasn’t a #1 we had to drink. And you wouldn’t believe how many nights we were just stunned at what had not been a #1 song.”
I think I’d need a whole lot of Whiskey if I were to sit down and try this with Eric, but I’m in!
As for one of those songs that never reached #1? How about “Cowboys Like Us”, which topped out at #2 on the Country charts. Below, see Eric and George perform the tune together!
