iTunes has named Eric their 2011 Country Breakthrough Artist of the Year and has featured CHIEF in their Best of 2011 section. NPR Music has also chosen the new album as one of their Top 50 Albums of the Year.
“On his third album, Church hits his stride, chronicling wild nights and epic hangovers with just the right amount of critical distance." - NPR Music
In response to all of these accolades, Eric states:
“I am so grateful for the many ways CHIEF has changed my life. There is no cooler thing as a recording artist than when people tell you that your music matters to them. Every single day the momentum for this record gets bigger and stronger, and I can’t wait for next year to share this music with the people who truly made this happen. It’s gonna be one hell of a tour!”
