After turning heads with the release of “Stick That In Your Country Song” in late June, Eric Church is giving fans another taste of what’s to come on his forthcoming new album with the release of “Bad Mother Trucker.”

The guitar-driven anthem was written by co-written by Church alongside Casey Beathard, Luke Dick and Jeremy Spillman.

“She is hell on wheels where the road meets the rubber/ A real gear jammer, a white line wonder/ Yeah, you only get one and I wouldn’t want another/ ‘Cause mama was a bad mother trucker,” Church sings on the chorus.

The superstar shared that the song “combines a contagious groove and a guitar solo begging for the day we can all once gather at a live show.”

Church’s highly-anticipated new album will serve as the follow-up to 2018’s Desperate Man. Earlier this Church revealed that he wrote and recorded 28 songs in 28 days for his next project.
