Katherine Blasingame is married to the sexy country star Eric Church, who has a net worth of $10 million and makes girls scream when he’s on stage. Read on for all the details on Blasingame, how she met Church, their family news, and how they live their lives happily together.
1. She’s In the Music Business
It’s quite common for celebrities to date other people in the entertainment industry, so it comes as no surprise to know that that’s how Eric Church came to know his wife. Taste of Country reports:
Eric Church fell in love with another member of the music business. But Katherine Blasingame was not a songwriter or singer. She worked for a publishing company that pitched songs to artists.
Church talked about how he met his wife to Taste of Country stating:
She was trying to hook me up to write with one of her writers that she represented, that was how we met. It’s great now, because being a publisher and being somebody in the industry, I can bounce songs off of her and she has the knowledge, you know, to be kind of that sounding board of what I should cut and what I shouldn’t cut. So, she’s one of those in the inner circle that I run a lot of stuff by.
2. They Married in 2008
In 2008, Blasingame and Church married in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. Blasingame has brought out another side of Church and he’s done things he’s never dreamed up since getting together with his wife. One thing was covering a song. Church told Taste of Country:
There’s a song on this record called ‘She Loves Me Like Jesus Does’ that was a favorite of hers that I didn’t write. It’s the only song in my career that I cut that I didn’t write, and it’s because of her. She found the song and played it for me and I loved it too.
3. Blasingame Is Expecting Her Second Child With Church
Blasingame and Church welcomed their first child Boone McCoy Church, a son born in October of 2011. Currently, they are expecting their second child together. When Church talked about having kids to Rolling Stone over the summer, he stated:
When you have a child, everything changes. I’ve changed a lot. I suppress a lot of maybe the way I used to be. Is that dark side still probably there? Yeah. I just don’t let it come out very much. But if you mess with my kid, if you mess with my family, well, I can bring it out.
4. The Song “You Make It Look Easy” Was Written for Church’s Wife
What woman wouldn’t love their man to write her a song. When it came to their wedding, Church did just that for his bride. Church dished about his song “You Make It Look Easy,” revealing:
That’s the song I wrote for my wedding. My wife Katherine didn’t know I was writing something for the wedding and neither did I. I hate love songs. I have a hard time with them. I think they’ve been done so many times, and I hate stuff that’s just your clichés. I thought, “There’s got to be another way to do this.”I decided that the best way was to just be honest. There’s a “drink too much” line in there. That’s honest. At the wedding is the first time Katherine really heard the whole thing. She cried. Everybody cried. That’s me baring my soul, there.
