Eric Church Shares Studio Video for New Song 'Lynyrd Skynyrd Jones'

Eric Church is continuing to roll out studio videos for his new songs, releasing the clip for his latest track, "Lynyrd Skynyrd Jones," on Tuesday, March 2. Church's frequent collaborator Casey Beathard wrote "Lynyrd Skynyrd Jones," the story of a musically gifted biracial teenage boy named Lynyrd Skynyrd Jones whose parents met at a Lynyrd Skynyrd concert in Tallahassee, Florida.

As he grows up in Gadsden, Alabama, the boy wonders about the identity of his father, though his mother never shares the information and dies mid-song. The boy's father is revealed at the end of the song, though Skynyrd fans with a keen ear may have picked it up early on. "Lynyrd Skynyrd Jones / Hailed from Gadsden, Alabama / Called to carry on / Who his mama was a fan of," Church sings in the chorus. "Don't ask me no questions / And I won't tell you no lies / That's what she always told him / Right up 'till' the day she died." "Lynyrd Skynyrd Jones" will close out Church's upcoming album Soul, which is a part of a triple album, Heart & Soul, that will be released in April. The & album will be available exclusively to the singer's Church Choir fan club members.

Heart, will arrive on April 16, the ampersand album will be available to Church Choir members April 20, and Soul will be released on April 23. Church and his collaborators recorded all of Heart & Soul's 24 songs during a writing retreat in the mountains of North Carolina in early 2020, and several have already been released.
