I think most of us have parts about our jobs that we really don't like or we get burned out with on occasion. Even me -- whose job consists mainly of sitting on my butt for a large part of the day reading about the fabulous lives of celebrities and then writing about it -- I get totally burnt out and have to take breaks. Unfortunately those breaks occasionally last for two years.
But what about the stars? People who make millions off of CDs, tours, merchandise, etc., do they ever just get burnt out and tired of it all?
As unbelievable as it sounds, they do. Or at least Eric Church does, well the CD making part of it anyway.
Eric Church's album "Chief" came out in 2011 so it's about time for people to start wondering when the next album will be hitting stores. It's the nature of the beast....put out a hit record, start planning for the next, put out a hit record, start planning for the next.
Unfortunately for Eric, recording CDs is the least favorite part of his job and he's dreading having to do it again.
"I don't like making records, I'll be honest with you," Church tells Taste of Country. "It's so hard for me, and it's hard on me because of what I go through as a songwriter and what I go through in the recording process. Every time it almost kills me. I never look forward to making a record."
Wow. That's quite the admission considering making CDs is such a huge part of being a singer.
Oh, kind of like me admitting that I occasionally hate writing. Oops. I retract my previous comments. Ha!
Eric goes on to say that the good thing about putting out a record that does well in sales -- like "Chief" -- is that it gives him more time to NOT have to record another.
"As successful as 'Chief' has been, the great thing about it is we've got a long ways to go on 'Chief' still because the record is selling," he continues. "Luckily, it will be a year from now before I even have to start thinking about where in the hell we go from here."
Well I guess as long as your music is burning up the charts like his current single Springsteen is, Eric probably wont be bugged too much about churning out another CD.
And since I'm assuming Eric's favorite part of being Eric Church is performing, check out a full list of his Blood, Sweat and Beers Tour dates here.
