If a song has Eric Church’s pen, voice and production on it, you KNOW it’sย  good.

I am a HUGE fan of Eric Church. I’ve commented on him winning – um –ย  Best New Solo Artist ??? and I’ve made reference to his current song in a previous post.

But now Eric Church has taken his current single “Homeboy” to the Tennessee State Prison for filming – the site where in 2007 he filmed “Lightning” from Sinners Like Me – the best album to come off Music Row in 2006 and the debut of Church’s master lyrical songwriting craftsmanship, production and whiskey-soaked vocals.

That alone should tell you the Homeboy video promises to be powerful.

Church’s opinion – “the video is ‘really cool’ and not like anything heโ€™s done in the past.”

Now, personally, I hate when people ruin a song or a movie or a book or even an article for me by telling me all about it and giving their opinion. I like to watch, look and listen and form my own. So . . .

That’s what I invite and urge you to do here, watch, look, listen and f-e-e-l this song, this video, this artist – form YOUR own opinion – then pass it along.


If you’re on Facebook you can watch Homeboy right now ! on Eric Church’s bandpage – which is always nice to give the artist a “visit”, a “like”, a “thumbs up”.

If you’re not on Facebook, then sign up now or . . .

Head over to the official Eric Church website to watch it there and fill yourself in and up with everything Eric Church – you’ll be glad you dropped in.


And please come back and share your thoughts of Eric Church with us here !


I had the luxury of riding the T (train) into Boston a few days ago. Not a sport I participate in often but – hey, there I was. I picked a seat, snuggled in and –

Wow ! I could not believe what happened after that.

Obviously, little by little, stop by stop, passengers emerged – plugged in, logged on, tuned out.

Blankly scanning their vicinity they settled into their spot and their socializing.

But no one was communicating – not with anyone in their immediate vicinity, the seat beside them or across the aisle. Nope, it was quite apparent and paradoxically amusing that . . .

Lack of communication is a huge Social Networking Glitch !


That sounds like a contradiction, I know, so do your own experiment.

The next time you’re in a public setting, look around and take notice – smartphones, e-readers, laptops. People are talking, texting, tweeting – with everyone but the guy whose cologne, latte or body sweat is permeating their space.


But all is not lost. We have caught this before it becomes the social disorder of the century. Here’s what to do to make sure you don’t fall victim to this fast rising downfall


with the people around you. If nothing else, comment on their digital device, talk about yours, engage in conversation about how awesome it is in this social networking world to be able to communicate with a myriad of people in a myriad of ways in a nanosecond.

Text ’em, tweet ’em, friend ’em lata – but for heaven’s sake put socializing back into social networking !
