In a new interview with "Rolling Stone", Eric Church got candid about almost dying last year, as well as his thoughts on Garth Brooks' lip-syncing, immigration, climate change, and the NFL protests. You can check out the article here.
On Garth Brooks Lip-Syncing at the CMAs: "That [ticked] me off. Lip-syncing is a red line. It's fabricated. I don't want young artists thinking it's okay, because it's not. If I can't sing I won't, or I'll sing badly. But at least you'll get what you get."
On the Route 91 Tragedy: "It got dark for me for a while. I went through a funk for six months. I had anger. I've still got anger. Something broke in me that night, and it still hasn't healed. There's a part of me that hopes it haunts me forever."
On the 2016 Election: "Hillary [Clinton] just bored me. I just didn't see much." His wife voted for Donald Trump and she tried to get him to do it too. He told her, quote, "Ain't gonna happen. I don't want to vote for somebody I'll regret voting for."
On the NFL Protests: "I was taught by my father to take my hat off [for the anthem], but if somebody wants to do something different, it's not my place to tell them not to. That's how the Constitution works."
On Immigration: "I believe there's a better way to handle it, but we're a country of immigrants, and we always should be."
