Eric Church’s “Stick That In Your Country Song” is off to a running start at country radio, earning the title of the most-added song this week.

The unapologetic anthem made its debut at radio on Thursday (June 25), raking in acclaim from fans and critics alike upon first listen.

The Jay Joyce-produced track finds Church challenging his fellow country artists to step up to write and sing about things that matter. From social turmoil to military homecomings to “underpaid” and “overworked” teachers, Church sends a clear message to artists to sing about real-world issues.

“Drop me off in Baltimore/ Where every other window’s got a plywood board/ Where dreams become drugs and guns/ The only way out is to shoot or run,” he sings.

In the chorus, the superstar directly addresses his fellow artists: “Stick that in your country song/ Take that one to number one/ Get the whole world singing along/ Stick that in your country song.”

The song is the lead single from Church’s forthcoming album and the “tip of the spear” for what’s to come.

“I cannot wait until we can all get together and I can play it. And you can sing it, and we can have that camaraderie, we can have that communion… because I miss that, and I think everybody misses that. It’s coming and when it gets here, it’s gonna be a sonofabitch,” Church previously told fans.

Church co-wrote “Stick That In Your Country Song” with Davis Naish and Jeffrey Steele.
