Newcomer Eric Church has recorded an album full of traditional country music. It is traditional in the sense that it is full of pride in nation and working class sensibilities. He is by no means a red neck in that he realizes that the U.S. is made up of the privileged class and the not so privileged class; he is more socially conscious than some of his music forerunners. There is definitely a modern twist to his version of traditional country music. In the true tradition of country music each song seems like a story he wants to share with listeners and is trying to do his part to keep that age old oral tradition alive and well.
