Up for auction is the single country hit “Sinners Like Me” from genre leader Eric Church. "Sinners Like Me" has earned with impressive consistency for the past decade.

Featured as the lead single on Eric Church’s debut, certified-Gold album Sinners Like Me, the title track generates consistent earnings 13 years after its release. In fact, streaming is the largest income source (58%) in the last year, and these royalties are on the rise, up 13% compared to the previous timeframe. 

Following the 10-year anniversary of its release, Church debuted the original, never-before-released video for the song. The video now claims well over a million streams on Facebook alone.

As the track is incorporated in Church’s concerts, consistent live performance royalties make up a majority of the earning sources, accounting for 28% of historic income. You’ll notice a spike in earnings in Q3-2018, which is an annual payment for live performances. 

Key Drivers

Dollar Age. This offering has a Dollar Age of 9.78 Years. This means the majority of royalties earned in the last 12 months comes from songs that have generated royalties for nearly 10 years. A high Dollar Age like this suggests stability and longevity and is worth noting as an investor. This can help sustain the asset’s earnings moving forward.

Live Performances & Touring. One unique aspect of this catalog is that 35% of royalties in the last 12 months come from live performances. The country star tours actively and performs the older releases consistently, as seen in the data. In fact, this catalog has earned 28% of its historic income from live performances, with royalties paid in line with Church’s tour for the last six years.

Eric Church is currently on his 2019 Double Down Tour, where he performs two shows a week in one city. The massive tour began in mid-January and is currently scheduled to run through late November 2019. This is good news for you as the investor, as this catalog collects income generated by the live performances of the included Eric Church songs. It's also important to note that if Eric Church stops touring/performing the track, the earnings from these live performances could diminish.
