Eric Church celebrated the success of his latest chart-topping hits, “Some Of It” and “Round Here Buzz,” on Tuesday (Sept. 24) with a double No.1 party at an airplane hanger near the Nashville airport.
Church‘s co-writers, Jeff Hyde, Bobby Pinson, Clint Daniels and Luke Dick, along with their friends, families and members of the music industry, joined together to toast the No.1 songs.
During the celebration, Church was surprised with an incredible video montage featuring Jon Pardi, Thomas Rhett, Cole Swindell, Ashley McBryde, Brothers Osborne, Kassi Ashton, Kip Moore, Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, Maren Morris, Morgan Wallen, Jason Aldean and Ray Wylie Hubbard. During the clip, each artist shared their thoughts on Church and his career, with many revealing how the superstar has inspired them as an artist.
Church watched with a big smile on his face and became seemingly a bit emotional at several points. Watch the video above to see the montage and be sure to watch Church’s reactions throughout the clip.
After watching the video, Church returned to the stage where he addressed the crowd. He thanked his family, band, co-writers, label, etc. then took a moment to share his thoughts on the video.
“That video was something I’m not ready to address yet,” he told the crowd. “That was one of the coolest things – no, that’s about the coolest thing I’ve been a part of… My intention was always just to try to make great music, write great songs. And to see it matter is really something.”
“But I will say this after seeing the video; I’m not done. I’m not retiring. I’m not dying… I look forward to kicking their asses every night on stage,” he professed with a smile on his face.
Eric Church is currently nominated for three CMA Awards, including Entertainer of the Year.
*Keith Urban and Luke Combs were also included in the video montage, but we had some technical difficulties and missed capturing them on camera.
