Eric Church experienced another career highlight Thursday, as the North Carolina native was honored with his own star on Nashville’s Music City Walk Of Fame.
At his induction ceremony, Church reflected on getting his start in Music City – and the city that’s become his home: “I came to this town in a 1987 two-tone Chevy Blazer in 2000. And I remember pulling in. I didn’t know anyone. I had a guitar, mediocre songs at the time, and big, big dreams…I thought I had big dreams. But this is beyond those things. I’ve been here 23 years now. I met my wife here. My manager Jon Peat’s here. Had my kids here. Go to baseball games here now. It’s become home to me. So the honor is for the accomplishments I’ve had in my career, but it’s also for: This is home.”
The Walk of Fame is across the street from the Country Music Hall of Fame on Demonbreun Street in downtown Nashville. Eric’s star is the 99th on the Walk, joining legends like Hank Williams, Dolly Parton, Randy Travis and others – making the Walk a must for Music City tourists.
