Eric Church Pulls 10-Year-Old ‘Sinners Like Me’ Video From the Vault
On July 18, 2006, Eric Church released his debut album, Sinners Like Me. Ten years later, he celebrated the milestone by pulling a previously-unreleased video from the vault.
Sinners Like Me produced a number of singles — "How 'Bout You," "Two Pink Lines" and "Guys Like Me" — as well as fan-loved tracks like "Pledge Allegiance to the Hag" and the title track.
A video for the song "Sinners Like Me" was made 10 years ago, but never released. In a message on Facebook on Monday (July 18), Church finally made the video available to the masses.
"This video has been sitting in our vault for 10 years, waiting for this very moment," he writes with the clip. "Eric's first album Sinners Like Me came out 10 years ago today. With classic songs like 'These Boots,' 'Two Pink Lines,' 'Pledge Allegiance to the Hag,' and 'Sinners Like Me,' this album defined Eric as we know him-one decade later."
The four-minute video shows Church and his band wandering a town before their gig. As they set up for the evening, shots pan to the audience later that night singing along word for word to the song and showing off their Eric Church-branded tattooed skin and homemade signs. All the while, Church sings the slowed ballad and strums along on his acoustic guitar.
A 10 years younger Church sans his signature shades and leather jacket is seen backstage and on his tour bus getting ready for the show with his band by taking some shots and having meet and greets with fans.
Church co-wrote "Sinners Like Me" with Jeremy Spillman.
