His second album, 2009’s Carolina, produced three more singles: «Smoke a Little Smoke» and his first top 10 hits, «Love Your Love the Most» and «Hell on the Heart». 2011’s Chief, his first No. 1 album, gave him his first two No. 1 singles, «Drink in My Hand» and «Springsteen», and the hits «Homeboy», «Creepin'», and «Like Jesus Does». His third No. 1 single was «The Only Way I Know», which he, Jason Aldean, and Luke Bryan recorded for Aldean’s album Night Train.
A fourth album, The Outsiders, was released in February 2014. It produced five new singles between 2013 and 2015 with the title track, «Give Me Back My Hometown», «Cold One», «Talladega» and «Like a Wrecking Ball». «Talladega» and «Give Me Back My Hometown» each reached number one on the Country Airplay chart. Eric Church got his sixth No. 1 hit with Keith Urban in May 2015 with the single «Raise ‘Em Up». His fifth studio album, Mr. Misunderstood, was released in November 2015 and went on to produce two number one singles with «Record Year» and «Round Here Buzz». On July 13, 2018, Church released the first single and title track of his album Desperate Man, which was released in October 2018. In April 2021, Church released the triple album set Heart & Soul.
On January 8, 2008, Church married music publisher Katherine Blasingame in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. At the wedding, Church performed «You Make It Look So Easy», a song he wrote for Blasingame. On October 3, 2011, their first son, Boone McCoy Church, was born; he is the subject of Church’s song «Three Year Old». On February 15, 2015, their second son, Tennessee Hawkins «Hawk» Church was born. Their home (along with Church’s «man cave»), located in Nashville, was featured in an episode of CMT’s Cribs.
The Chief Cares Fund is a foundation organized by Eric and Katherine Church in 2013. The non-profit organization has been used to help underprivileged families in Tennessee, North Carolina, and even as far as helping orphans in Nepal receive clothing, proper bedding, and schooling. The foundation has also delivered Bibles to Haiti and helps fund Humane Society no-kill animal shelters. People can donate to the foundation on Eric Church’s website by simply donating or by purchasing exclusive Chief Cares Platinum Tickets to his concerts where money from the tickets go to the Chief Cares Fund.
Church wears his signature aviator sunglasses as a result of wearing contact lenses. When his career was getting started, he was forced to deal with the heat from the stage lights drying out his contacts. As he began performing in larger venues, his aviators and Von Dutch denim trucker hat became his trademark.
Church has become an avid advocate for the use of cannabis, reflected in songs such as «Smoke a Little Smoke»; at the time of that song’s release, Church’s record label urged him not to release the song, though it had minor success as a single. Church has also referenced marijuana use in other songs like «The Joint» and «I’m Gettin’ Stoned», and has even been the subject of a marijuana joke at the 49th ACM Awards where Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan referred to Eric Church as the Willie Nelson for the new-country generation and compared Eric Church’s dressing room to a cannabis dispensary.
