Eric Church, "Smoke a Little Smoke"
The final single from 2009's Carolina, "Smoke a Little Smoke" is a boot-stomping ode to relaxation, sung by a man who prefers Mary Jane to Marlboros. Church's girl has flown the coop and his world is threatening to spin out of the control. Looking for some sort of anchor, he uncorks a wine bottle and packs a bowl, finding solace in substance. Is he regaining his bearings or just getting lost? Perhaps a bit of both. . .but once the chorus hits, who cares?
