Eric Church gets hitched

Tuesday, January 15, 2008 – Eric Church married music publisher Katherine Blasingame on Tuesday, Jan. 8 in a private ceremony, attended by immediate family, in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Church's home state of North Carolina.

The wedding took place at the Westglow Spa & Resort in Blowing Rock, N.C. "Katherine and I stayed there last year, and we just fell in love with the place," said Church. "We decided that it would be the ideal spot to get married, up in the North Carolina Mountains with just family around us. I can't imagine a more perfect spot."

Church surprised his bride with a new song, written especially for her, that he performed during the ceremony for the bride and assembled guests. "My brother snuck my guitar in for me, so I think I surprised her," grinned Church.

The entire wedding party stayed at Westglow for most of the week, taking full advantage of the relaxing spa treatments and activities available at the resort.

But no honeymoon for Church. He is back in the studio recording music for his next album, the follow-up to his debut, "Sinners Like Me," ("Guys Like Me," "How 'Bout You"), expected in this summer. Look for the first single from the album to hit radio in March.

CD review - Mr. Misunderstood When listeners were introduced to Eric Church on his debut, they heard an artist who could balance strong song writing with a bit of a rebellious edge to the music. The surprise release of his latest continues that tradition, being quietly released to his fan club before even being officially announced. The music, written and recorded over a short period of time with an unheard of fast turnaround, has a raw edge that bridges the gap between radio friendly country music with the more rugged sound ...
CD review - The Outsiders Eric Church looks to take no prisoners on his big and bold - sometimes very dark - sounding fourth studio release. He makes that crystal clear on the cover where he stands flanked by his backing quintet, looking tough, menacing, ready for a rumble with arms hanging down, hiding behind sunglasses. These guys are ready to roll. As in rock and roll, which Church et al cook up with the lead-off title track, an out-and-out rocker with Church laying down his outside the lines credentials. ...
