Country Stars React to Eric Church’s Statements

It’s been a big five hours for us here at Keepin’ it Country, and for the country music world. Only a few minutes after posting a few quotes from Eric Church‘s interview in the current issue of Rolling Stone, did country stars start reacting. First to find out was the usually funny Blake Shelton, who was pretty serious over what Eric said about Blake and The Voice:

@blakeshelton: “@keepinitblog: Eric Church slams Blake Shelton, @NBCTheVoice, in his interview:” I wish I misunderstood this…

Miranda Lambert also took to Twitter to defend her husband. She re-tweeted our article then added her own input:

@miranda_lambert: Thanks Eric Church for saying I’m not a real artist. Or @kelly_clarkson, @carrieunderwood & @KeithUrban. Your welcome for the tour in 2010.

American Idol contestant Skylar Laine, one of the few country artists on this season, took offense to Eric saying that there are no real artists on her reality show.
@SLaineAI11: Eric why would you say that??? Readin that crap just broke my heart.
The Voice’s young country contestant, Raelynn, also had a little bit to say on Eric’s statements. Raelynn had just joined Miranda Lambert on-stage at Stagecoach Festival this past weekend.
@RaelynnOfficial: Well I was a fan of @ericchurch till now.
Eric Church has yet to respond to the comments. Read his comments for yourself here on Keepin’ it Country, or in the new issue of Rolling Stone. Eric has a show in Nashville this Saturday at the Bridgestone Arena. How do you think Music City is going to welcome him back?
