Eric Church learned a lot watching George Strait end his touring career with The Cowboy Rides Away tour last year. Eric opened several shows on the trek, and the song that affected him the most at every concert was the Strait hit “Troubadour.” The song talks about a singer still feeling young and vital even though they don’t have much longer in the spotlight.
Eric tells Rolling Stone, “It was an emotional thing for me, seeing him wrap up his career the way he wanted to. I think about this song a lot when I’m on stages. Will I be on this stage again? There’ll be a time when I won’t be. My day will come too.”
