Young Boy unexpectedly finds himself in country music spotlight

FRISCO, Tx. (WTVQ)- A young Texas boy unexpectedly found himself in the country music spotlight Sunday at the Off the Rails Country Music Festival. And it’s a story close to my heart.

My 8-year-old nephew Beckham Winter went to the festival and hoped to get his cowboy boot signed by his idol, Eric Church. The country music star saw him in the crowd, and put his guitar down and pulled him to the stage. Church had his arm around Beckham as he sang his hit song, “These Boots.”

Coincidentally, it’s not the first time the two have met. In January 2015 Beckham was part of a “Meet and Greet” at Church’s Nashville concert at Bridgestone Arena. The trip from Texas was in celebration of Beckham’s 7th birthday, which was the same day as the concert. The two took a photo, holding a handmade sign that showed Beckham with his guitar, emulating his idol…right down to the Ray Ban sunglasses. The picture was later featured among fan photos in Country Weekly magazine.

As for Sunday night, Church finished “These Boots,” then graciously signed both of Beckham’s boots, making a dream come true for his biggest (little) fan.
