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.
