Real Name: Kenneth Eric Church

The ‘Drink in My Hand’ hitmaker was born Kenneth Eric Church. His father’s name is also Ken, but these days both of his parents call him Eric. Some of his bandmates call him Chief, however, after his album of the same name. That nickname was the one given to his mother Rita’s father. He was the police chief in Granite Falls, N.C. for 27 years.
