Eric Church Parties With His People Every Show

Eric Church tells Spin magazine that he wants every show to be a rowdy party—and he’s gonna party right along with ’em.

“We’ll have some drinks before the show and drinks always make their way up on stage,” he says. “Somehow in arenas, those little airplane bottles always start floating around.

“I look at it like I’m partaking with the crowd. I want my crowd to leave their lives outside and I'm going to do that too. When I'm on stage it's a release moment; I'm going to have a good time,” he said. “If I go out and sing ‘Jack Daniel’s,’ I’m going to be drinking it. A glass of milk’s not gonna cut it.”

Eric says he loves the uncertainty and the roughness of it all.

“People might fight, throw things, crowd surf, and it might not be safe but I love that energy,” he says. “That’s why I’m doing this, to get lost in the moment. I want the crowd to do the same.”

Eric will be getting lost in the moment all summer long, including some dates with Kenny Chesney.
