Some of us have nicknames and how we got them, could be for something cool, or something really dumb. Eric Church I think has one of the best nicknames in the country music world: Chief. How did he get that nickname? Well, you know his trademark sunglasses? He didn’t start wearing them for no reason, the stage lights would dry out his contacts so the glasses came in, and then the hat was added to help keep the sweat under control. So when he would get ready to go on stage for a show, he would put them both on, and his band would joke, Alright, its time Chief. This nickname also carries over from his grandfather who was a Police Chief.
