Congratulations to Eric Church and his wife Katherine who have just announced the arrival of their son. Boone McCoy Church is the first child for the couple. He arrived on Monday at the Centennial Women’s Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee at 8:35 am CST. He weighed in at 7 lbs and 8 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.
Eric does have tour dates planned for the rest of the year, but he is planning on slowing down so he can enjoy time with his family. The last time Eric took time off from the road was to write for his new record, “Chief.”
“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.”
Eric and Katherine are planning on releasing pictures of their son in the next few weeks.
