Eric Church Hits the Racetrack in His ‘Talladega’ Video

The speedway-themed clip is a tearful homage to lifelong friendship

Gun-shooting, four-wheel-riding country balladeer Eric Church has released a brand-new visual for “Talladega,” a song taken from his Grammy-nominated album, The Outsiders. Directed by Church favorite Peter Zavadil, the racetrack-themed video chronicles the story of five friends visiting the Talladega Superspeedway after high school graduation. As the star’s band busts out their Southern-rock jam at the Nashville Speedway, a montage of mid-century home movies illustrates the nostalgic narrative. We’ll take a box of tissues with our Dominos, KFC, and the always-delicious Taco Bell, thanks. Check the video above.
