Ever since Taylor Swift accepted her first gold record and gifted it away to Eric Church for getting fired from the Rascal Flatts tour, people have been wondering what really happened. You see Swift was called upon to replace Church and his band because he was reportedly let go for “playing too long.” This ofcourse was the beginning of Taylor’s successful journey and breakthrough in country music. The behind the scenes story according to Rascal Flatts is that they gave Church four warnings and four chances to stick to the allotted playing time and get it right. But each time, nothing changed. With touring, time is money and road crews get paid by the hour. So when Church defied the rules at Madison Square Garden where thousands of dollars are on the line, that was the end. So you could say that the issue at hand here was money and complete disrespect. Meanwhile, Rascal Flatts is getting ready for their “Rewind” Tour with opening acts Cheryl Crow and Gloriana. Eric Church releases his new album “The Outsiders” February 11th.
