This weekend, I was out and about while sporting an EC t-shirt...and I had, at least, six people strike up a conversation with me about it...even had one girl tell me that she wanted to go to a show and that she could almost cry thinking about being in the same room with EC and that she would like to make wall paper for her room out of his photo (yes, I thought it was strange that someone might cry upon seeing EC...that's a new one)...I know that some of you know what I'm talking about, when you pull out that same old t-shirt you've been wearing since 2006 and instead of strangers asking "who is Eric Church"...they're saying "I love Eric Church"...my how things have changed...way to go Hoss!
I may have only joined the Church Choir a year ago, but have been a fan since '06. I have all his CD's and to this day I think he writes the most amazing songs!
I don't live that far from Appalachian State, so EC has been pretty well known in the WNC area...but I have to say the same has happened to me....
For me it's a ball cap....I have 2 - one I wear and one I had autographed and I keep it in my office. Quite the conversation piece and I am amazed at the variety of folks who are new fans. I think it is Awesome that EC is finally getting the recognition he deserves!
Like i say...Eric Church is a lyrical god! His music does more to us, than he may know! I remember jammin to his CD heading to the local fair, or drivin down a backroad jamming to Springsteen. It's faith, and people like us introducing EC to everyone! If you can honestly tell me an Eric Church song you don't like there is something wrong with you! LOL
I had a girl at the bank that went nuts...I just beamed with pride.
It also blows me away all the people using ECs music as their FaceBook status!
...same thing here Tony...once folks heard he was coming to town...my phone started blowing up...pretty funny!
It'll happen Patti...it'll happen!
I haven't had any of that happen yet....but I'm waiting!
Oh Yes times they are a changing!
Just had two people at work ask if I could get them tickets for Eric's Hoffman Estates Show.
