Just recently we heard about Eric Church causing some drama with his strong remarks against reality TV singing competitions and artists who appear in them. He angered fellow country artists, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert and later apologized for his remarks. Now only a week later he’s being recommended to appear in a reality show. This just makes me laugh! I almost feel like John Rich, the winner of last year’s Celebrity Apprentice, recommended that Eric appear on the show just to be sarcastic. If in fact John was just poking fun at all the drama Eric started with his Rolling Stone comments, then he has been successful.
Rich said, “I would like to just extend an invitation that if Eric wants to meet Donald Trump and go on ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ I will make that happen for you, Eric.” I’m wondering if Eric will respond to John’s recommendation or even further fetched, accept Rich’s invitation. (I highly doubt it!)
Looks like we’ll have to just wait and see what (if anything) happens. I’m pretty sure Mr. Church will stick to what he does best and that’s make great music. Check out his latest video for “Springsteen” if you haven’t yet!
