Eric Church Reveals He Was Just One Day Away from a Furniture Career

Eric Church tells that he almost stopped chasing his dream.  The furniture business is a big part of his North Carolina upbringing…  And the couches were calling.

The CMA Entertainer of the Year reveals:  “My father agreed to pay my rent for six months, and if it didn’t work out, I’d have to go back and work in his furniture business.  That almost happened.  I had been rejected all over town.  I called my brother to come downtown and get drunk with me.  The next day, I got a call from Arturo Buenahora, Jr., to come in and sing.  He signed me, after hearing me sing ‘Lightning.’  I was literally one day away from packing it in, and heading home, at that point.”  

Country music superstar seems to fit “Chief,” better.  Church performs Friday, March 11th, at United Center.  Congratulations to everyone who’s won tickets with 98.3 WCCQ!
