Eric Church had heard it through the grapevine that the actual Springsteen was a fan of his hit song by the same name but he didn’t expect to get a gift from him. According to an interview Eric did with Billboard.com, Bruce’s road manager, Wayne LeBeaux hand delivered a note to him from ‘The Boss’ himself.
“As they were leaving the Fenway show, [Springsteen] said, ‘Wayne, what are you doing this weekend?’ ‘I’m going to see Eric Church.’ ‘No kidding,’ and [Springsteen] took out a set list and wrote me a great note, filled up the whole back of the set list talking about how he was a fan of the song, how his family was a fan of the song,” said Church.
Of course, Church was so blown away by this move by Springsteen, he couldn’t believe it at all. “It’s the first time I’ve officially heard from him. I had heard he was a fan of the song, but it’s the first time I officially heard. It means the world to me—and the set list is three hours and 37 minutes. That impressed me, too,” he said.
Church will perform live on the Canadian Country Music Awards on September 9th, on CBC.
