Eric Church was completely “blown away and totally floored” by a Christmas gift that he received from Keith Urban.
In a recent interview on Today’s Country Radio with Kelleigh Bannen, Church chatted with Bannen about his forthcoming triple album Heart & Soul, his upcoming National Anthem performance at Super Bowl LV with Jazmine Sullivan and a gift that he received from Urban for Christmas this past year that he says is “unbelievable.”
Urban gifted Church a “pre-war” 1933 Martin guitar for Christmas to thank him for their chart-topping single “We Were,” a track that appears as a duet with Church on Urban’s latest record, The Speed of Now Part 1. Church also co-wrote the tune.
“You know what’s interesting? Keith Urban sent me a 1933 Martin for Christmas,” Church recalled. “This Christmas. I came back and it was underneath the tree and I was blown away. He was thanking for the ‘We Were’ song that we had. Unbelievable. I came back from Christmas, underneath the tree and he had a letter with it. I was just, I was floored. I was totally floored.”
Bannen asked Church “that is nuts, where did he find this guitar?”
“I have no idea, I have not got the full story,” Church replied. “He says we got to talk about it at some point in time.”
