Eric Church has never been one to hoist up the cost of his concert tickets to pad his pockets. In fact, he says that goes against his entire philosophy as an artist, as his goal has always been to get more people to his shows rather than more money per ticket sale. With this mentality, then, it’s not surprising that the Grammy-nominated singer is so peeved about what’s been happening at shows all along his Blood, Sweat and Beers Tour. Church has some choice words for the big ticket brokers that have been purchasing his tickets and scalping them to fans.

It seems he was drunk in his car in front of a Baptist church in Sanger, Texas, because he had just been in a fight with his girlfriend.
At Saturday night’s Jason Aldean My Kinda Party Tour show in Champaign, Ill., one fan was trying to have his own kinda party — but he wasn’t able to stay in the audience long enough to see it to a good close. With Aldean at the back of the University of Illinois assembly hall to join Luke Bryan on an acoustic set, the drunken fan began losing his cool, which is visualized in the video below.
