On Friday during ACM rehearsals Eric and his longtime manager John Peets, were surprised back stage with the award for Video of the Year for the music video for "Mr. Misunderstood."
The video was co-directed by Eric's manager John and videographer Reid Long and featured McKinley James, who was also on the cover of "Mr. Misunderstood." Watch the surprise below!
Eric Church is again taking strong action to ensure his fans come first. Last November, he revealed to the more than 80,000 members of the Church Choir that inspiration had struck and resulted in his new album Mr. Misunderstood, which he shared with them first and free of charge before putting it on sale. That insistence that his fans come first now has him standing up to scalpers in light of recent on-sales for his back-to-back intimate engagements at Red Rocks Amphitheater.
"I get asked all the time about my favorite venue, and I always answer the same way. Red Rocks. When people ask why, I just smile and say, 'you must not have been there.' It's truly breathtaking," Eric shares. "I'm honored to have two shows there."
Upon their normal review of the orders for the two nights, Church and his team discovered that a total of 2,700 tickets were purchased by known scalpers,…

After wrapping earlier than expected at a private event in his home state, Eric found himself only an hour and a half away from the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame ceremony where his mother, Rita Church, accompanied by his sister Kendra, were attending the induction to accept the invitation on his behalf. Realizing he had no time to spare, Eric borrowed the keys to his father Ken's vehicle and--with his wife Katherine and assistant Marshall Alexander in tow--they rushed in an attempt to make it to the Gem Theater in time for the dedication. While Alexander drove, Eric was busy texting his sister--unbeknownst to her or the hundreds in attendance--to see if he could arrive in time as he now had set his mind on attending and surprising the crowd.
When only a few miles away, Eric learned his mother had stepped on stage to read her remarks of gratitude for the honor, but…
