We take you behind the scenes and explore the making of one of our favorite tunes with The Song Remembers When…
In the summer of 2016, Eric Church scored his seventh number one with “Record Year,” from his album Mr. Misunderstood. Eric co-wrote the song with Jeff Hyde.
Jeff actually had the first verse done, and Eric couldn’t believe that no one had come up with an idea like that before. It follows a path out of heartache while listening to a vinyl record collection. The lyrics incorporate the memories of music from George Jones, Waylon Jennings, James Brown, and Hank Williams, and it eventually leads to happiness.
It’s this week’s The Song Remembers When – Eric Church and “Record Year.”
