Eric Church is advocating for Americans to get vaccinated against COVID-19 in a new Billboard story.
He even let them take a picture of him receiving his to use on their cover. "It became very clear to me that the only way to really get back to normal is through vaccinations. You've got to get needles in arms," says Eric. "If you believe you shouldn't, I don't have a problem with it. I'm a liberty guy, too. I get it. But I view this a little differently than most other things. We've never encountered this." He also talks about how strange it is to see pictures from his older shows where he is hugging and interacting with people. "That has been the hardest thing about COVID...it takes what you do," he adds. "I used the music and the stage to get me through some of those darker things that were more personal. Take that away, and you've got to deal with some of the stuff you maybe haven't dealt with." Eric's team says that they are working on plans for a post-pandemic tour.
