Eric Church Gets Serious About His 4th

Eric Church Gets Serious About His 4th

Eric Church has fond memories of celebrating the Fourth of July holiday as a kid with trips to the lake with family and friends and, of course, fireworks.

As an adult, however, Eric tells us he has a much clearer understanding of the holiday and why it truly is a reason to celebrate and be appreciative. “I think sometimes we forget what the holiday’s about cause it can be about a party, and it’s really not. It’s about especially the soldiers that I come in contact with on the road and playing, and not only that. I mean, to be able to make the music that I’m able to make and to say what I want to say, and that freedom to be able to do those things and be in a country where we’re allowed to do that and be in a country where we’re allowed to play that stuff on the radio. Nobody’s gonna I don’t think you’re gonna have any American argue that America’s not the best place to live and I’m certainly one of them. I’m very proud to be from here and very proud that we have the soldiers. There’s a lot of other countries out there in the world that don’t want to live the way we do, and that’s fine. They can just keep livin’ the way they are. I’m very proud of it, and I think that’s a time to celebrate being proud to be an American and celebrate those freedoms and celebrate the people that are over there fighting for this freedom.”
