This track is off of Eric Church‘s The Outsiders album, which I humbly suggest was one of the most innovative and creative country albums in years. He also had one of the most fun concerts of 2014!
The song “A Man Who Was Gonna Die Young” is the tale a man looking back on living the fast life with gratitude that he made it through, inspired by the woman by his side. This song is relatable on so many levels, one of which being the “this morning I turned 36” lyric as this track was on my playlist rotation as I celebrated that birthday.
Enjoy Eric’s guitarmanship and honesty as he sings this track for his YouTube/Vevo video.
