Congrats to Eric Church and his wife Katherine, who welcomed 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” says Eric. ”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 Eric’s calendar has been filled with tour dates for most of this year, 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 Eric got off the road, he wrote his chart-topping third studio album, Chief.
However, Eric 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,” he says. “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 for a look at Boone!
