Eric Church told Billboard in a new interview that he feels Morgan Wallen using the N-word, which banished him from country radio and Nashville’s music community, was “indefensible.”
When asked about the incident, Eric said he sent Morgan a note telling him he was praying for him and to keep “hanging in there,” however, he’s resolute in addressing Wallen’s actions: “That was indefensible. I was heartbroken when it happened. I think Morgan’s trying to work on that and on himself. And I hope he does.”
Wallen has often sited Church as a musical hero.
