"Homeboy" is a song co-written and recorded by American country music artist Eric Church. It was released in February 2011 as the ninth single of his career and the first from his 2011 album Chief. The song reached the Top 20 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart with a peak at #13. Church wrote this song with Casey Beathard.
In "Homeboy", the narrator addresses a delinquent brother who has taken to a destructive urban lifestyle. The lyrics play on the word "homeboy", turning it into a plea for his brother to "come on home, boy." Co-writer Casey Beathard came up with the song's idea after hearing his son say "come on, homeboy" to a friend. He made the song available as a free digital download from his website between February 20 and 24, 2011, although it was not available from retailers until March 8.
