During the days leading up to the 2015 CMA Awards, Eric Church’s Church Choir fan club members began receiving surprise new music, an album named Mr. Misunderstood. In a press release distributed during Wednesday night’s (Nov. 4) awards ceremony, the singer-songwriter further explained the project. “My son names my guitars. He named the one that would make my fifth album ‘Butter Bean,'” Church writes in a handwritten note, copies of which were distributed to media members. “I’ve always believed that instruments have stories to tell. It’s up to the keeper of the instrument to turn those stories into songs. “I wrote my first song on ‘Butter Bean’ late this summer. Twenty days later, I had 18 songs. Twenty days following that, I had 10 recorded. That was 30 days ago,” he continues. “It always takes me time to look for inspiration to make a new album. This time, inspiration found me. Together, we found Mr. Misunderstood. Today, it’s yours.”
