Ya gotta love when a country star comes out with a wish list of performers he’d like to work with and it’s based in classic rock roots. That’s just what Eric Church did in a recent interview with Paste Magazine. The obvious influence he mentioned was Bruce Springsteen. Church’s hit single “Springsteen” was an obvious ode to his idol melody, and like to describe himself  as a “Hillbilly Springsteen.”

There are a few others on Eric Church’s list including Bob Seger and Bob Dylan. The most surprising bit of information that he let out of the bag? He’s planning a collaboration with Greg Allman. If you dig a little deeper into Mr. Eric Church’s musical influences, you’ll find Metallica and AC/DC in there too. Not bad for a kid who used to cover Jimmy Buffet songs at a local bar!
