    Good grief! I guess it is not surprising you don't know who Springsteen is given that American media and Top 40 radio, MTV, etc., only play the latest and youngest thing but to answer your question: Bruce Springsteen is an American songwriter/rock and roll god whose career began about 40 years ago. In the 1980's he had a commercially successful album called 'Born in the USA' that landed him on MTV and constant radio play of all the songs on the album. Since then he continues to make new albums every few years, goes on world tours, does 3 hour shows and writes all his own songs most of which are deep, meaningful and poetic but set to traditional rock music and a variety of influences. Young bands that idolize him include Gaslight Anthem, Dropkick Murphy's, Arcade Fire, and Rage Against the Machine among many others. In the Eric Church song, the singer is remembering the way he felt at a certain time in life and the memories are triggered by hearing a Springsteen song so I would imagine the singer is remembering his youth from about 1984-1994 when Springsteen was most popular and most played on the radio and music videos.
