Eric Church is set to release his new album, The Outsiders, next week (Feb. 11), and he’ll do it having had little radio support for the lead-off title track single.

How does Eric feel about country radio ignoring “The Outsiders”? Call him Jimmy Crack Corn—he don’t care.

Eric says “The Outsiders” resonates with fans and gets a great response in concert.

“I think 10 years from now, when people go, they name five or six [Eric Church] songs, they're gonna name that song,” he tells reporters. “Regardless of what it did commercially, it's just one of those songs.”
