Eric Church recently vanished from the public scene for 30 straight days.
"I spent a month up in the woods," Eric tells The Boot. "I was totally disconnected from everything. It was a little weird. I had to socially re-adapt myself -- but it made all the difference in the world to just relax and write. I was able to filter everything else out." But Eric cautions fans shouldn't expect a new album before next year or perhaps even early 2012.
"People will hear new music [during concerts] late next year, but I don't think I'll be ready for a record by then."
