With a hotly anticipated new album on the way and 13 top-ten hits, Eric Church is on top of the world, but there’s much more beneath the surface.

From near death experiences to thoughts on 2016 election — this simple man in a complex world opens up and doesn’t shy away from controversial topics.

“I feel like these things need to be discussed. We don’t talk to each other enough. We dig in, we don’t listen, and we don’t talk.” – Eric Church, courtesy of Rolling Stone

The country star stands firm in his beliefs, but the most important is his belief in bringing people together with music.

The August issue of Rolling Stone is out now.
