Eric Church can now have his pick of guitars, but his first one came from a pawn shop with a price tag of about $75. He got a book of guitar chords to go along with it as he taught himself to play.
“It was about just trying to figure it out,” Eric says in a Q&A with Gibson.com. “At the time, I was playing some songs and hearing melodies, but I had no avenue to get songs out. I just started tip-toeing into it.”
Now Eric and everyone in his band plays Gibson guitars, but he insists that is just a coincidence.
Says Eric, “We all came from different areas, and those guys have been playing forever, and that’s what they’ve always played!”
Eric and his band continue on the Blood, Sweat & Beers tour through a December 15 show in Sunrise, FL.
