Eric Church Doesn’t Let a Little Blood Stop Him From Playing with the King

Eric Church wasn’t gonna let a little blood get in the way of his gig with George Strait. The night before his show on George’s ‘Cowboy Rides Away’ tour stop, Eric cut the index finger on his left hand.

“I didn’t go to the emergency room because I was worried the stitches would take me out of the show,” Church tells Country Countdown USA host Lon Helton. “So my father-in-law gets kerosene, and I dip my finger in kerosene … for about an hour. Then I super-glued it together [and] wrapped it. I am not missing this George Strait show, no matter what!” Church tried playing with the wrap during sound check, to no avail. “My jeans from that night got blood all over them,” Church says. “I kept wiping my hand on my jeans. I thought it was kind of rock-and-roll, bleeding all over your guitar.”

I can’t blame him. Since George won’t be hitting the road too often, this was probably Eric’s last chance, and I’m sure he’d do it all over again in a heart beat.
