Eric Church is an American country music singer and songwriter. Signed to Capitol Records in 2006, Church released his debut album Sinners Like Me that year. This album produced four chart singles on the Billboard country charts, including the Top 20 hits "How 'Bout You," "Two Pink Lines" and "Guys Like Me." His second album, 2009's Carolina, has produced three more singles: "Smoke a Little Smoke" and his first two Top 10 hits "Love Your Love the Most" and "Hell on the Heart."

Eric Church grew up in Granite Falls, North Carolina. At age thirteen, he bought a guitar and began writing songs of his own. By his senior year of high school, he had found a gig at a local bar, which occupied most of his time. He played many Jimmy Buffett cover songs and a few of his own original songs in some unpleasant places. Some of these places were so rough that he got into a few altercations from the stage. For a few years, his band played often in bars and restaurants throughout North Carolina. His band consisted of his college roommate, brother, and other fellow guitarist, temporarily naming their band the "Mountain Boys."

Before moving to Nashville, he graduated from South Caldwell High School and Appalachian State University with a degree in marketing. He later became engaged to a woman, her father then attempted to persuade Church into accepting a corporate career. Church just about gave up on music, but instead left his fiancé and headed to Nashville, Tennessee. His father paid for his first six months in Nashville, so the financial cushion his father provided him gave him time to make contacts.Eric eventually found a publishing deal at Sony/ATV Tree Music Publishing. Terri Clark took "The World Needs a Drink," which Church wrote with Casey Beathard, into the country top 30.
