Rascal Flatts Explain Why They Fired Eric Church

Rascall Flatts infamously fired Eric Church from their tour back in 2006 and the group is finally talking about the dismissal. During a recent interview the guys spoke candidly about the Eric’s exit saying “’We asked him four times to stay to the allotted amount of time that he had to play. We sat him down in our dressing room and were like, ‘Please, be off the stage because we still have to do our show.’”

The reason it’s so important is because when a band goes over their allotted time they’re charged thousands of dollars by the minute in labor fees. Gary, Jay and Joe Don said, quote, “The last time was Madison Square Garden and we said, ‘It’s really important that you get off on time.’ “We told him, ‘Instead of going 12 minutes over, we’ll put you on 12 minutes early, but you have to finish on time.’ And he played 20 minutes over. It was kind of like a middle finger to us.”

By the way, when “The Outsiders” singer was fired he was replaced by a little known singer (at that time) by the name of Taylor Swift.
