Added DiffLines:

* AdvertisedExtra: Averted with "Kill a Word". The album credits backing vocalists Andrea Davidson and Rhiannon Giddens, but the single edit credits only Giddens, and re-arranges the song so that she sings half of a verse by herself.

** "Smoke a Little Smoke" changed "Dig down deep, find my stash / Light it upů" to "Dig down deep, find my glass / Fill it upů" the first time, and "Find my match" the second time. This is done to mask the fact that what he's smoking isn't tobacco.

He first got his foot in the door in late 2004-early 2005 as a co-writer on Terri Clark's "The World Needs a Drink". Although it took him until his third album to score a major hit, Church kept plugging away, building a fanbase and touring frequently. Radio finally granted him a first #1 in early 2012 with "Drink in My Hand", then followed that up with the summertime smash "Springsteen". His fourth album, ''The Outsiders'', followed in 2014.
