Eric Church‘s new single, “Hell of a View,” is the most-added this week at country radio, with 46 new adds on Mediabase, bringing his total to 61. EMI Records Nashville’s Church is nominated for Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year at Wednesday’s CMA Awards, where he is slated to perform the song live during the ABC telecast.

Church co-wrote the track alongside Casey Beathard and Monty Criswell, and the recording features Church’s longtime backing vocalist Joanna Cotten.

“We were in North Carolina in the mountains, and when I came back in from a jog Casey immediately started playing the first part of the song he’d been working on with Monty,” Church said.. “He had the line ‘caught your wings on fire when I smoked my Bronco tires out of that town,’ and I just thought that was such a great line. I was smitten with it, so we finished it and then recorded it that night. I knew it was pretty special when it went down, because it felt like a big hit but at the same time it has that timeless quality to it.”
