Eric Church’s ‘Mr. Misunderstood’ Reaches Million-Plus Mark

Eric Church’s Mr. Misunderstood album.

Eric Church‘s fifth album, Mr. Misunderstood, has reached the Platinum mark, selling over one million units since its release. Church sent copies of the album to members of his devoted fan club, the Church Choir, before surprise announcing it at the 2015 CMA Awards and putting it on sale to the public.

The project has already produced the Grammy-nominated No. 1 single “Record Year,” “Kill A Word,” and the current single “Round Here Buzz,” which has become the fourth No. 1 from the album. The distinct story line of the album started with the lead single/title-track, “Mr. Misunderstood” which included a video featuring a real teenager, Mickey Smay, a musically inclined 14-year-old from Rochester, NY, who carried the album’s theme through the subsequent singles.

Church is gearing up for a performance on the upcoming Grammys with Maren Morris and Brothers Osborne to pay tribute to victims of violence in 2017.
