Eric Church is having a good week. He was in the Whiskey Bent Saloon in Nashville on Tuesday the new gold status of “Carolina”. The album sold and shipped over 500,000 copies and was officially certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The album featured chart-topping singles “Hell On The Heart” and “Smoke A Little Smoke”.
Church thanked his parents, his wife, and his fans for the accomplishment. It’s his first major milestone so far in his career.
“It’s not lost on me how special this is. It’s really humbling to be standing up here. I always envisioned that this day would come. I’m not the easiest guy to work with. … But I promise you, we’re going to kick everybody’s ass in the end.” ”
Church’s third album, “Chief,” is out July 26th.
