BRIEF BIO
Eric Church kicked off his “Blood, Sweat, and Beers” tour in 2012, including a sold-out stop at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena (home of the CMA Awards) with Brantley Gilbert. He has been named the outlaw rebel of Country Music. Songs like “Love Your Love the Most” and “Smoke a Little Smoke” gave a face to the singer, but songs like “Drink in My Hand” and “Springsteen” have made him a spark in Country.

  • Is a self-proclaimed child of rock, calling himself an “old school AC/DC rock-and-roll guy”
  • Released his first album, Sinners Like Me, in 2006
  • His latest album, Chief, debuted at No. 1 on the charts
