Nashville country badass Eric Church makes music that’s pretty far afield from the stuff we usually post on Stereogum, but he made one of our favorite albums of the year, so we’re going to start posting his stuff now. Best get used to it. Church’s new video is for “Talladega,” the sepia-toned reminisce about nights at an Alabama speedway. It’s one of the more pedestrian songs on Church’s great album The Outsiders, but it’s still a deeply satisfying piece of Southern rock power-balladry. Frequent Church collaborator Peter Zavadil directed the video, in which Church and his band play on a racetrack amidst, like, ghost cars. Watch it below.
