Eric Church’s latest hit, “Some Of It,” is nearing the top of the charts at country radio. The coming-of-age anthem was an instant hit, but did you know the song almost didn’t make the cut for Church’s record?

The North Carolina native recently revealed that “Some Of It” wasn’t originally included on the Desperate Man track list and that it made its way on there at the last minute.

“It’s just one of those songs that came along at the right time,” Church explains. “And again, it was such a blessing that happened. It wasn’t going to be on the album. It was just one of those freak things that I put it on the album, the last song on the album. The album was done, and all of a sudden it becomes the pillar or one of the pillars on the album.”

Church co-wrote the song alongside Jeff Hyde, Clint Daniels and Bobby Pinson. It’s poised to become his next chart-topping single.

As Church explains, sometimes you just can’t plan for everything. “I think again, you go back to it’s one of the great things about music, is you just never know what’s going to happen until it’s all said and done. You can try to plan all you want to, but you’ll probably not going to figure it out.”

Church recently wrapped his record-setting Double Down Tour. He will enjoy some well-deserved time off the road until mid-September when the tour picks back up in Green Bay, WI.
