Congratulations to Eric Church and the team at EMI Records Nashville. Eric’s finally found his spot at the top of the singles charts with “Drink In My Hand” becoming his first number one single of his career. The single from his critically acclaimed album “Chief” hit the number one spot on Mediabase today.
Eric was very happy and appreciative about the major career achievement:
“This is the 10th single we have released to radio. It is truly the greatest example of belief, dedication, determination and plain old hard work that we have achieved this milestone. I can’t thank the EMI staff and country radio enough for making this happen and believing in the music, but the real gratitude must go to our fans. I’ve heard countless stories from hundreds of fans of how they have gone above and beyond to get our songs heard and demand that people pay attention to what’s going on in our world. I can’t think of a better way to kick off a tour!”
Eric was recently announced as one of the performers at the 2012 CMA Music Festival. He’s also representing country music on the 2012 GRAMMY nominees album on the 22-track compilation album due out January 24th.
