He is a VERY good singer.
A much better songwriter than Taylor Swift w/his life experiences

“Chief,” his third effort, is by no means a great country album, but it comes closer than most because Church has a good idea of which direction greatness lies.

“Chief,” his third effort, is by no means a great country album, but it comes closer than most because Church has a good idea of which direction greatness lies. There’s no mistaking that he’s absorbed a ton of early Steve Earle, so he knows a good line when he or his co-writers come up with one, whether it’s the metaphors of “the first snap of the last straw” and “Dreams are like a knife when you’re hanging by a thread,” or just the sheer country comedy of a refrain like,“She got a rock, I’m getting’ stoned.”

Thankfully, there’s none of the South-uber-alles xenophobia that’s infected a lot of the other young male country records of the past few years. The first single,“Homeboy,” does gently mock a brother who’s gone off to the big city with his “hip-hop hat and his pants on the ground,” but it’s really a tender prodigal son lament, not a self-protective regional pride anthem.

He stoops to patronize, a little, on “Keep On,” an invitation to fight over a fair maiden in a bar. But as a songwriter, Church imbues it with just enough lyrical twists -- the way it veers between a sensual staredown and a violent one -- that you can easily forgive its sexually imperialistic belligerence.
