Eric Church is the latest country outlaw to hit it big in Nashville. He was named the Academy of Country Music's Top New Vocalist at the awards ceremony held on April 3, 2011 where he also performed his hit, "Smoke a Little Smoke." Now you can catch this rising rebel at a venue near you. The Eric Church concert schedule has been announced and he is slated to perform with country bad boys, Jason Aldean and Toby Keith, at various dates throughout North America this spring and summer 2011.
This North Carolina native heard the calling to country music early on and by high school he was playing gigs at local honky-tonks. He continued playing at local bars near his alma mater, Appalachian State University, where he graduated with a marketing degree. Church put his dreams aside for a second, deciding to get engaged and start a corporate job. The call to country proved too strong, and Church put Corporate America and his fiancee aside, opting instead to move to Nashville. His career quickly took off, first in the world of music publishing when he was signed to Sony/ATV Music Publishing. He penned a major hit with "The World Needs a Drink," which Terri Clark recorded and charted in 2004. Not long after, Church signed with Capitol Nashville and released his debut disc "Sinners Like Me" in 2006.
His first single, "How 'Bout You," was a rough and tough country anthem that hit #14 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs in 2006. Church wrote or co-wrote every track on the album and even persuaded country legend, Merle Haggard, to do a track with him. The album yielded two more top twenty country singles and peaked at #29 on the Billboard 200, garnering him attention in the crowded Nashville scene. In support of the album, the Eric Church concert schedule included opening stints for the Brad Paisley and Rascal Flatts national tours.
He was quick to produce a sophomore set, releasing "Carolina" in 2008. The lead-off single "Love Your Love the Most," peaked at #10 on the Hot Country Songs chart and was certified gold. Church blended outlaw back into country with songs like "Smoke a Little Smoke," and "Young and Wild," and has established himself as one of country's edgiest and most aggressive singer-songwriters. His success has not just been commercial, he was lauded with the ACM award for Top New Vocalist and narrowly lost out to the Band Perry for the ACM Top New Artist award at the April, 2011 ceremony. The prolific artist is already back in the studio crafting his untitled third release, whose lead single "Homeboy," is racing up the charts.
Church's performance at the 2011 ACM awards ensured fans that he knows how to rock the rodeo. Make sure you catch this cowboy rocker when he visits your area. Eric Church tour dates are booked across the country and his concert schedule includes opening stints for Jason Aldean and Toby Keith.
