Church debuts "Creepin'" video Friday
Thursday, September 13, 2012
– Eric Church will premiere the music video for his new single, Creepin',
from the CMA Album of the Year nominated record, "Chief" exclusively on RollingStone.com on Friday, Sept. 14.
The music video was directed by Peter Zavadil and filmed in Chattanooga, Tenn. at the East Chattanooga Depot. The video features a normally sunglass-clad star sans his regular shades as he and a group of bandits - all Church's longtime band members disguised alongside Church - set out to rob a train. Costume designer and stylist Katy Robbins worked in conjunction with Church and Zavadil to recreate the late 18th century fashion.
"It's an interesting concept. My band got to play in it and act in it, which was pretty cool. We're all in western wear and robbing a train," Church said. "For one of the scenes we filmed, we had the train stopped in a tunnel, and it was hotter than nine hells in there. It reminded me of the old days when we used to play crowded bars and clubs, only this was the first time I've ever sweat through the bottom of my boots."
Church starts the fall leg of The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour tonight in Amherst, Mass. with a pre-show 21+ BBQ at Mullins Center before doors open for the show featuring special guests Kip Moore and Justin Moore.

When listeners were introduced to Eric Church on his debut, they heard an artist who could balance strong song writing with a bit of a rebellious edge to the music. The surprise release of his latest continues that tradition, being quietly released to his fan club before even being officially announced. The music, written and recorded over a short period of time with an unheard of fast turnaround, has a raw edge that bridges the gap between radio friendly country music with the more rugged sound ...
Eric Church looks to take no prisoners on his big and bold - sometimes very dark - sounding fourth studio release. He makes that crystal clear on the cover where he stands flanked by his backing quintet, looking tough, menacing, ready for a rumble with arms hanging down, hiding behind sunglasses. These guys are ready to roll.
As in rock and roll, which Church et al cook up with the lead-off title track, an out-and-out rocker with Church laying down his outside the lines credentials. ...
