Eric Church posted a video message to fans, as well as the world, along with a clip of a song he recently recorded, “Through My Ray Bans.”
“Where there once were roars,
Now there are just echos.
The handshakes and the hugs of yore are now too dangerous.
But I don’t believe in fear. I don’t believe in panic.
I don’t believe in all this complexity
This damn virus has any idea what it’s up against:
The American resolve, steeled by the world, steadied by faith, calmed by song,
healed by prayer. Oh, I believe. Damn right, I believe.
I believe these halls will roar again.
These stadiums will be deafening and the answer to this enemy.
The silence of now will cower at the noise of soon.
When the question of who will answer this call is asked
Thousands will raise their fists and say I will. We will.
And we damn sure will. Where fear preys, we will feed.
Where pestilence stalks, we will hunt.
I feel for our enemy, for it has no chance. It has no prayer.
And I believe, I believe our best is yet to come. We shall rage.
We shall roar. I cannot wait to see you again through my Ray Bans.”
Eric is currently making his way up the country charts with “Monsters.”
