Eric Church Asks: “Where Did You People Come From?”

“Selling out arenas, I remember we were at the club two years ago just down the street,” he says.

Yeah, Eric Church has sold about a half a million tickets on his current tour, filling arenas across the country. But it's still hard for Eric to believe.

“No, no way, not with the path that we came,” Eric tells the Regina Leader-Post in Canada.

“What’s weird is playing a lot of these cities now, selling out arenas and I remember we were at the club two years ago just down the street. It’s just weird for me to be out there and see that and go, ‘What the hell happened? Where did you people come from?’

“It’ll never feel normal for me because I’ll always feel like we’re the underdog a little bit," he said. "I’ll always feel like we’ve got to fight harder than everybody else, that we have to give it more than everybody else.

“I mean, I never thought I’d have a No. 1 anything so to have the No. 1 album and the second No. 1 single off this record, it’s just bizarre.”
