Eric Church Explains The Meaning Behind 'The Snake'

One of the most talked about performances during Sunday's (April 7th) ACM Awards was the collaboration between Eric Church and Ashley McBryde on "The Snake," a cut on Eric's Desperate Man album. Eric tells us the song is his commentary on politics in general. "‘The Snake’ is really a song that was written about this political discourse, battle. Full disclosure, by nature I’m just not a very political person. I find it somewhat silly. I feel like in order to be a career politician, you have to keep your base riled up and the best way to rile up your base is to attack the other side, and the other side does the same thing. So, this song really came from whichever side you want to paint is a copperhead, and whichever other side you want to paint is a rattlesnake."

Eric is making his way up the country charts with his latest single, "Some of It."

This weekend, he takes his Double Down Tour to Dallas.
