Eric Church Calls Himself Hard to Love

How He and Katherine Find True Love

There’s a song on Eric Church‘s Chief album called “Like Jesus Does.”

It’s all about finding that one woman who loves you like He does, even when you’re not quite perfect.

With lyrics like, “I’m a good ol’ boy, drinking whiskey and rye on the levee/But she carries me, when my sins make me heavy/And loves me like Jesus does,” and, “She knows the man I ain’t, She forgives me when I can’t,” it’s a nice little love song to have on your playlist this Valentine’s Day.

And in a recent radio interview, Church talked about how his wife Katherine loves him that same way.

“True love to me is when you love a person in spite of all their fallibilities, and for me, I have a lot of them,” Church said.

“I’m definitely at times hard to love, and that’s what’s great about Katherine and the way she loves me. She loves me in spite of those things,” he said, “and really for those things.”

Church and his wife just celebrated their 9th wedding anniversary. They were married in January 2008 at the Westglow Spa & Resort in North Carolina.

“Katherine and I stayed there, and we just fell in love with the place. We decided that it would be the ideal spot to get married, up in the North Carolina mountains, with just family around us. I can’t imagine a more perfect spot,” he’d said at the time.
