Eric Church gave us all some hope that we will get out of this quarantine and economic hardship caused by COVID-19 and the Coronavirus. We are all facing hard times — physically, mentally and emotionally — and Eric’s intro before he performed a new song, “Never Break Heart,” during the CBS Special ACM Presents: Our Country, I believe, is a message we can all absorb in moving forward.
He said, “The hardest thing about this for me as a dad, as a husband, as a business leader, as a citizen, has been the unknown. I believe we fear the unknown. And after some thought and a lot of prayer, here’s what I know — I have hope and you should have hope, because since the beginning of time, people have gathered. They’ve gathered for fellowship, they’ve gathered for worship, they’ve gathered for prayer, they’ve gathered for song, they’ve gathered for communion, they’ve gathered for grief- but they’ve gathered, and we will gather again. The important thing to remember is to not fear, but to be brave, and endure.”
Eric is currently making his way up the country charts with another appropriate song, “Monsters.”
