Eric Church is in a stink  with Taylor Swift fans over a new cryptic teaser promoting his next album, The Outsiders.

Now pulled from the  Internet, the YouTube video featured a clip of Taylor’s Pinnacle  Award acceptance speech at the CMA Awards, recalling how she replaced  Eric on a Rascal Flatts tour. The clip then repeated Taylor saying, “Eric Church  got fired,” over and over.

What a lot of people don’t  know is that Eric and Taylor are actually friends. Before he filmed the teaser,  he asked Taylor directly if he could use the clip to get his fans excited about  the new music. Taylor gave  Eric the green light, but then she talked to her record label, which said that the video had to be pulled  from the Web.
