After wrapping earlier than expected at a private event in his home state, Eric found himself only an hour and a half away from the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame ceremony where his mother, Rita Church, accompanied by his sister Kendra, were attending the induction to accept the invitation on his behalf. Realizing he had no time to spare, Eric borrowed the keys to his father Ken's vehicle and--with his wife Katherine and assistant Marshall Alexander in tow--they rushed in an attempt to make it to the Gem Theater in time for the dedication. While Alexander drove, Eric was busy texting his sister--unbeknownst to her or the hundreds in attendance--to see if he could arrive in time as he now had set his mind on attending and surprising the crowd.
When only a few miles away, Eric learned his mother had stepped on stage to read her remarks of gratitude for the honor, but…

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…
