Ha! Eric Church has given me my favorite quote of the day.
Spin.com has a great article about Eric where the writer followed him around for a day. At one point (after they finished spreading deer pee), Eric talked about Brad Paisley's song Accidental Racist and the mess that went along with that. That's when he gave me my quote of the day.
"There was a bunch of noise," he says. "It wasn't something I focused on because, here's why: If that's a statement he wants to make, creatively, artistically, then cool. I think that's noble. I think that's good. Because, artistically, he's reaching out… There's too many people who don't put themselves in the position to have that kind of backlash. It doesn't matter what you think about the song, good or bad. The important thing is he threw his nuts on the table. I dig it. I dig that part of it. I've done that. Where people say it's the worst song ever, they hate this, they hate that. People hate 'The Outsiders.' But people love 'The Outsiders.'"
Now when I use the phrase threw his nuts on the table you'll know where I got it from.
If you have a bit of time, you should read the article on Spin.com. It really is entertaining.
