Eric Church is thankful to live in the United States where he has the freedom of speech to write about whatever he wants in his songs. Eric knows that freedom wouldn't exist without U.S. troops working to defend that right. That's why he's saluting the U.S. military this Memorial Day weekend.
Eric says, "I don’t think you’re going to have any American argue that America isn’t the best place to live, and I’m certainly one of them. I’m very proud to be from here and very proud that we have the soldiers."
Eric and his fans will be celebrating Memorial Day weekend at his show in Baton Rouge Saturday.
"I think that’s a time to celebrate being proud to be an American and celebrate those freedoms," Eric says of Memorial Day weekend, "and celebrate the people that are over fighting for those freedoms."
