Eric Church Knew Duet Would Be A Hit

Published On March 30, 2015 | By Cheryl Johnstone | Country Music News

Eric Church didn’t hesitate when Keith Urban asked him to join him on his latest single, “Raise ‘Em Up.” Eric says he had no doubt that the song would be a smash.

“The ‘Raise ‘Em Up’ quality, I mean there’s also a line in there about kids and about life. It’s about lighters. It’s about drinks. One verse is about, you know, black umbrellas, about a funeral. It’s a very serious song. Plain and simple, it’s a hit. I mean, there’s very few times that I’ve heard a song and said, ‘That’s (a hit).’ I don’t care what the circumstances are, it’s probably a hit in Portugese. It’s a hit. It’s just a damn hit, you know? It is, and it’s gonna be a big hit for Keith, and I’m glad. I’m glad to be a part of it, and I’m glad he asked me. It’s just a beautiful song.”

“Raise ‘Em Up” was co-written by Jaren Johnston, Jeffrey Steele and Tom Douglas, and is featured on Keith’s album, Fuse.

Eric is currently scaling the country charts with his own hit single, “Like a Wrecking Ball.”
