Eric Church got emotional while honoring his late brother during a concert over the weekend. Taste of Country reports that Church was performing at Ohio’s Country Concert on Saturday, July 7, when he delivered the first part of the classic hymn “Amazing Grace.” He then moved into his 2006 single, “Sinners Like Me,” which features the line, “Me and my brother” and references his family and his ideals of being forgiven for multiple sins upon death.
Church also told the audience that he’d been having a tough week, but that he wanted to play, adding, “I need this. I need my people.” Church’s brother Brandon died earlier this month from complications related to seizures. He was 36.
