As much outrage in the country music world as Eric Church has caused, it looks like there might be a silver lining for him. Less than 24 hours after we here at Keepin’ it Country found his statements in Rolling Stone magazine and reported them, Eric’s single “Springsteen” from his album “CHIEF” is number one on the iTunes country singles chart – both in the United States and in Canada.
Eric’s album “CHIEF” is currently in the top 10 country albums chart in both Canada and the United States. Blake Shelton‘s “Red River Blue” is currently number nine on the American iTunes country charts. Miranda Lambert‘s single “Over You,” which is a co-write with her husband, is number six on the US iTunes Country Singles Charts, and number nine on the Canadian iTunes Country Singles Charts.
Is Eric a marketing genius? Or is it just a temporary case of curious fans? What do you think?
