As a member of the Church Choir you’re the first to know (hours before anyone else)... Eric is hitting the road in 2012 headlining “The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour” with special guest Brantley Gilbert and The Cadillac Black, Blackberry Smoke, Sonia Leigh, Jon Pardi and Drake White*.
*artists on various dates
Don’t be surprised if “Parental Discretion is Advised” appears on the ticket when Eric brings his newly announced The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour to over 50 cities in 2012. The St. Petersburg Times recalls his last performance in their town noting Eric “made the rowdiest yawp, and drew the most toked-up fans.” With word of mouth long fueling Eric’s sweat-soaked, sold-out crowds, Eric surprised Music Row naysayers earlier this year when his third release, CHIEF, topped the Billboard charts with over 145,000 albums sold in its first week—a true testament to the years of hard work by Eric and his band on the road. CHIEF has since been certified Gold and produced the Top 15 “Homeboy” as well as current Top 15 and climbing single, “Drink In My Hand,” on which Church’s live show serves as the backdrop for the music video counterpart.
No other up-and-coming artist is quite as suitable for the raucous Church crowd as Valory Music Company’s Brantley Gilbert. Gilbert, who has experienced recent radio success with his current Top 5 hit (will revise to No. 1 based on charts on Monday) “Country Must Be Country Wide,” has been building his fan base on the outskirts of “polished” country for years in the southeast. Similar to Church, Gilbert brings grit and attitude to the stage – and he should fit in just fine with the theme of The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour.
Eric is announcing the tour exclusively to his Church Choir members first, and beginning on January 19, 2012 in Fort Smith, AR, Eric will kick-off the 50+ dates nationwide with stops stretching from New York, NY to Minneapolis, MN, Chicago, IL and Nashville, TN.
“We have been building our entire career for this tour. It is truly the culmination of a lot of blood, sweat, and beer that has brought us to this point in our career," says Eric. "I have always trusted our fans to deliver with their dedication and passion, they have always exceeded my expectations. I have never been more excited to begin a tour than this one. The band and I are committed to emptying the tank every night and delivering the best show we can."
