Country music artist Eric Church has a large catalog of songs, but he connects with "Solid" on a very personal level. Watch him talk about the track here!

Country music star Eric Church believes that his track “Solid,” featured on his Desperate Man album, best describes who he is as a person.

“This song had been around, had been fighting for a lot of spots for a couple records. And on this album, honestly it was perfect,” the singer-songwriter shared via a video posted on social media.

He continued to reflect on the song, saying that he loves the intro and the way the guys in the studio unintentionally reacted to it by head-nodding. Church explained he can still picture a few people smoking cigarettes and “they just had this head-bobbing thing going on.”

Eric co-wrote the tune alongside musician Anders Osborne.

The country phenomenon spoke honestly about his tune when he admitted that it “encompasses” the way he views himself and where he is musically. Listen to Eric proudly talk about “Solid” below.

“Solid” Lyrics 

I don’t own nothin’ new
I might look like a mess to you
But I’m solid
This ol’ thing I drive around
Got some rust, makes some funny sounds
But it’s paid for and solid
You may think I’m way too chill
But I get it done, got my daddy’s will
And I’ll always, I’ll always keep a promise
In a great big world, spinnin’ around
People walkin’ around on shaky ground
My foundation’s solid
Like a vessel gettin’ tossed on the big blue sea
Tryin’ to rock me off my feet
It’s you that keeps me solid
Everybody wants me to think like they do
Put my faith in somethin’ new
But this old school is tried and true, it’s solid
Got these 501’s back in ’93
Yeah the blue’s all gone, you can see my knees
But to me man, they’re still solid
This old scarred-up piece of wood
Sounds a lot better than it looks
I can’t count the nights that it’s caught me when I was fallin’
In a great big world, spinnin’ around
People walkin’ around on shaky ground
My foundation’s solid
Like a vessel gettin’ tossed on the big blue sea
Tryin’ to knock me off my feet
It’s you that keeps me solid
It’s been a lotta years since I’ve taken this road home
It’s still not paved, Mama and Daddy’s gone
But the gravel in my soul is solid
