Eric Church is really looking forward to spending the holidays at home especially being able to spend some time with his new baby son, Boone McCoy, who was born in October.


“The first Christmas [with him] is going to be really exciting,” Church tells Taste of Country. “He’s really small, so next Christmas he will probably be a little more active [laughs]. It’s going to be really fun to go through those things. There are not that many ‘firsts’ you get to go through in your life, so for me, the first Christmas with my first child is something I’m going to savor.

In 2012, Church will have another ‘firsts’ to experience; his first headlining tour! The Blood, Sweat and Beers Tour is set to kick off on January 19 in Fort Smith, Ark.
