Eric HimselfThe world knows this popular country star as Eric Church. However I would bet few know his real name is Kenneth Eric Church. Eric was born in Granite Falls, North Carolina on May 3, 1977. Eric has had a passion for music at a very young age. At just 13 years old, Eric bought his first guitar and began writing songs of his own. By graduation, Eric was playing in a local bar. In exchange for his degree in marketing from Appalachian State University, his father paid for his first six months in Nashville, and that’s where it all began…
The Music Side…Eric is a country music singer who finds inspiration to write songs in many places. Eric has a passion for music, which is so evident from his music. In 2006, Eric debuted his first album titled, Sinners like Me. Eric released Carolina in March of 2009. In July of 2011, Eric released his most popular album, Chief containing the greatest song ever, Springsteen. Chief was album of the year in 2012, and Springsteen was song of the year.
What do I think about Eric Church?Where do I begin? In my opinion Eric Church is one of the hottest up and coming country artists. I think he produces more modern country, compared to Willie Nelson or Hank Williams. I have seen Eric in concert and he is one of the best performers I have seen, and he’s better looking in person than the photos I chose from the internet (too bad he’s married). I hope to see him produce many more number one hits and flourishes in his career. I think Springsteen is one of the best popular country songs right now and I would love to see Eric become even more popular and take off his career.
