Eric Church's five-year-old son Boone is on his payroll.  He makes 10 bucks a show helping the choir -- which sings on the opening number -- get onto the stage in time. 

Eric says, “Boone’s got a radio, he’s got his flashlight, he’s got a little work belt and his pass, he goes in there, and he’ll make sure that the choir’s ready to go.”

Boone even negotiated a raise after he complained that his job was boring and that he was underpaid.  Eric shared that he shook Boone’s hand and thought, “I just got hustled.’
