Eric Church and his wife Katherine are proud to welcome their first child, Boone McCoy Church. Boone was born on Monday, October 3 at Centennial Women’s Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee at 8:35 a.m. CT and weighed 7 lbs. and 11 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,” said Eric Church.
Church has been touring extensively throughout 2011 in support of his third album release, Chief. However, he has plans to reduce the number of performances for the remainder of the year so that he can spend some time with his family.
“It will be interesting to see how this new chapter in our life manifests itself musically,” added Church. “I’ve always made music that was representative of real life. Life doesn’t get more real than having a newborn at home.”
