Nashville, Tenn. (Thursday, October 6, 2011) – One of country music’s most dynamic entertainers is now working on pleasing an entirely new audience. Eric Church and wife Katherine are proud to welcome their first child—Boone McCoy Church.
Boone was born on Monday, October 3 at Centennial Women’s Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee at 8:35 a.m. CT and weighed 7 lbs. and 11 oz.
“Everybody always tells you what an awesome and unique experience being a parent is. Words can never do the feeling justice. I am very thankful and blessed to have a healthy and happy baby boy and baby mama,” shares Eric.
Although Church has been touring extensively throughout 2011, he does have plans to reduce the number of his performances throughout the remainder of the year to enjoy time with his family. The last time Church took time away from the road was to write his chart-topping third studio album, CHIEF. However, Church does expect an entirely new set of inspirations to come from his time at home.
“It will be interesting to see how this new chapter in our life manifests itself musically,” Eric adds. “I’ve always made music that was representative of real life. Life doesn’t get more real than having a newborn at home.”
The Church family will be releasing photos in the coming weeks of the latest addition to their family. Stay tuned to www.ericchurch.com for more details.
