Even by Eric Church’s ever-expanding definition, Thursday night’s show under a full moon to open Nashville’s brand new Ascend Amphitheater was different. Maybe even a little weird, he told fans. “The thing about tonight is you get to see something you’ll never see again,” Church told the crowd, which pushed against the lip of the new venue’s stage and stretched up to the top of the new shed's back walls. “Because after tonight we’re never doing this (bleep) again.” Full of deep cuts, improvisational arrangements, a few lyric slips, a never-before-heard new song and lots of laughs, the set was reminiscent of the solo outing Church played earlier this year in Salt Lake City when most of his band fell ill due to a virus on The Outsiders World Tour. Church built “The Outsider’s Joint” on stage, complete with bars and bartenders, friends and band members seated along his playing space, and a cowhide couch. He invited band members Jeff Cease, Joanna Cotten,…
Eric will be honored by the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum when he becomes the subject of their next cameo exhibition opening Sept. 18. “Eric Church: Inside the Outsider” runs through February 2016 and will spotlight the North Carolina native’s hard-hitting path from a kid with a dream to becoming a multi-Platinum-selling country rocker filling arenas, amphitheaters and stadiums. The display will include guitars, song manuscripts, stage wear, photos and more personally chosen from Church’s collection.

With a simple yet propitious promise that no two nights will ever be the same, Eric has fans repeatedly coming back for more. Last night's The Outsiders World Tour stop at Lincoln, Nebraska's Pinnacle Bank Arena further proved why the man Stereogum called "our greatest working rock star" has notched his fourth North America venue attendance record of 2015 with 15,823 present--a record previously held by Sir Elton John (November 23, 2014; attendance 14,368). With his fervent band backing him the majority of the night, Church performed over two hours of original music with hits "Give Me Back My Hometown" and "Smoke A Little Smoke" interspersed by deeper album cuts like "Longer Gone" and "Livin' Part of Life" emerging from his vast arsenal. "I'm humbled by the success this tour has had," Church adds. "The records it has set, by some of my muses and heroes, it's [all] very surreal. As an avid music fan, I'm not sure it's deserving in comparison to those I adore musically. I can…
