Eric Church - "Kill a Word"

Eric Church's most recent album, Mr. Misunderstood, came out last year. A song from it that I keep returning to is "Kill a Word," in which he lists all the negative words he wishes he could eradicate: regret, fear, lies, hate, you get the idea. Always setting his sights on the arena, Church is a country guy with strong pop and (in the case of this song) gospel instincts. A simple sentiment effectively and melodically conveyed.
