You may recall the story of how ERIC CHURCH was kicked off the RASCAL FLATTS tour back in 2006 because he played too long. But you may not know what happened between him and TAYLOR SWIFT, who replaced him.
He jokingly told her she owed him her first Gold album, and she took it to heart. When her self-titled debut went Gold she sent it over . . . and she wrote, “Eric, thanks for playing too long on the Flatts tour. I sincerely appreciate it. Ha-ha. Love you.
“Eric’s exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame opened last week. In addition to Taylor’s Gold record, you’ll see stuff like his ACM and CMA Awards, clothes he wore in music videos, his first guitar, and his trademark Ray-Ban sunglasses.
Make plans to go see it.
Here is Eric in his AOL sessions– from his Vevo channel… doing an amazing job! As always…
