It’s always good to hear great things about one of your favorite artists.
And Parker McCollum had high praise for Eric Churchafter opening for Chief at his Memorial Day Weekend stadium show in Milwaukee at American Family Field on Saturday night, along with Brothers Osborne.
Parker took to Instagram and posted a lengthy caption about how incredible Eric and his entire crew were the whole day, and how they treated Parker and his team like they were the headliners.
Eric even popped in himself to check on Parker and make sure they were all set before the show and had everything they needed.
Everything Eric did is never an expectation when you’re opening for an artist of his caliber, but it’s awesome to hear that the North Carolina native hasn’t gotten too big for his britches quite yet (though I’m sure some will still suggest otherwise… it was one basketball game, people).
“I have to say something about the show last night with Eric Church. We were opening the show, before Brothers Osborne and him. His entire crew treated us like we were headlining.
Unbelievably polite and accommodating the entire day. Even Eric himself took the time to say hello and make sure we were taken care of. It doesn’t seem like a lot but it’s a big deal when they truly don’t have to do a single thing for us.
They chose to make us feel like it was our show too… in a Major League Baseball stadium.
And when Parker headlines his own stadium show one day, he’ll always remember how Eric treated him when he was an opener way back and when, and hopefully, will pass that on to the next up-and-coming artist.
I have yet to see any video indicating a collaboration or duet happened between any of these three acts, but rest assured we’ll bring it all to you if anything pops up.
