Eric Church Thankful to Have “Grown Closer to Family” During Helluva Year

Musically speaking, Eric Church has a lot to be thankful for in 2020, including winning his first CMA Entertainer of the Year Award, scoring a No. 1 single with Luke Combs (“Does to Me”) and earning a Grammy nomination for Best Country Solo Performance (“Stick That in Your Country Song”).

During this season of Thanksgiving—in a year that has been turned upside-down by the ongoing pandemic—Eric said he is grateful that he has been able to spend plenty of quality time with his wife of 12 years and two sons.

“You know, this has been a helluva year, and one thing I’m most thankful for is my family, their health,” says Eric. “We’ve all, I think, grown closer during this. I’m just thankful that I’ve been with my family and we’ve all stayed healthy and I’ve gotten to hang out with them.”

Eric released his new single, “Hell of a View,” on Nov. 9. Penned by Eric, Casey Beathard and Monty Criswell, “Hell of a View” finds Eric crooning about chasing your dreams with the one you love: “This ain’t for everybody / Toes hanging off the ledge / Like we got nothin’ to lose / Ain’t always heaven, baby / This livin’ on the edge / You holdin’ me holdin’ you / It’s a hell of a view.”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
