Through the years, country music star Eric Church has built a reputation for making his live shows extra special with unique arrangements and one-night-only set lists. Now the rock star pushes the envelope further with a not-to-be-missed two night engagement set for April 30 and May 1 at Las Vegas’s The Joint, Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Church will be joined by different opening acts each night. Billy Joe Shaver opens up on Saturday with Marty Stuart opening for Church on Sunday, May 1. With Church, the two acts and a setting on one of the finest spots in Las Vegas, fans should expect one wild, wild ride.
Once in a blue moon…
This event presents one of the few chances this year for fans to see Church, who is one of the nominees for Entertainer of the year in the 2016 Academy of Country Music Awards. Church is up for 6 awards at the CBS broadcast award show set for April 3 although he has mostly kept a low profile since the conclusion of the 2-year run of his Outsiders World Tour and last November’s release of Mr. Misunderstood, a new surprise album. For 2016, he has very few shows on schedule, and with a new album’s worth of music you can surely bet each single show being special.
Expect a great live performance from Church.
New music or not, Eric Church is a tested and proven performer and crowd puller… Influenced by various artists ranging from Metallica to Merle Haggard, he serves up his rock-and-roll infused country performances with a sly grin and infectious energy that have previously landed him into tour with several of the biggest country music names including Rascal Flatts and Brad Paisley. Well, an Eric Church concert would just be incomplete without the signature trucker hat and the aviator sunglasses which have quickly become staples for the Nashville based country rocker's live shows.
A chance to sample Mr. Misunderstood.
A North Carolina native, Church is country’s reigning bad boy: A fact that’s especially apparent in his newest album, Mr. Misunderstood. Although Church has built the reputation of a restless creative force blazing the unconventional route to country music superstardom, Mr. Misunderstood represents a very audacious quantum leap. Its aggressive set consisting almost entirely of his compositions or co-compositions, finds this iconoclastic guitarist/singer/songwriter covering a dizzying amount of lyrical and musical ground. He takes advantage of a broad array of sonic options while constructing an adventurous, consistently-thrilling ride. The end result is Eric Church's most personally-charged, revealing statement yet—one that will challenge several of the accepted contemporary country music rules.
His previous album, the Outsiders achieved Platinum status. Debuting as No. 1 in Billboard Top two hundred Album Chart and also in Top Country Album chart, it garnered nominations for GRAMMY, ACM and CAM Album of the Year. It featured the No.1 hit songs “Talladega” and “Give Me Back My Hometown” as well the multiple nominee song “Like a Wrecking Ball.” The Outsiders was a follow-up of Church’s Platinum certified CHIEF, which was named 2012’s ACM and CMA Album of the Year while being nominated for GRAMMY Best Country Album. This LP featured 5 Top twenty singles: “Homeboy” (Platinum-certified for sales of over 1 million); the Top ten “Like Jesus Does”, the Top five “Creepin’” (both Gold-certified for sales of over 500,000); and 2 Number one hit songs “Drink in My Hand” (Platinum-certified) and “Springsteen” (Double Platinum-certified for sales of over of 2 million). His 2006 debut album, Sinners like Me and the 2009 sophomore album, Carolina are RIAA Gold-certified.
Eric Church, a country music force to reckon with.
Since Church launched his country music career with the 2006 hit Sinners Like Me, he has remained very true to his instincts and maintained that stubborn insistence of doing things just his way—an approach that has been clearly reflected in his career trajectory and musical output. His 2009 hit Carolina, established him as a superstar, and the 2011 hit Chief propelled him to Platinum sales heights, winning him such prestigious honors as ACM and CMA Album of the Year awards.
Although Church is not a stranger to country music charts with singles such as “Homeboy”, "Drink in My Hand," ,""Springsteen" ,“How Bout You” , "Smoke A Little Smoke" ,”Guys Like Me and "Two Pink Lines" his appeal, and relationship with the audience, cuts way deeper than garden variety hit making. H released “Record Year,” recently as the 2nd single from the new album, Mr. Misunderstood. This song, which name checks various songs such as Stevie Wonder's “In the Key of Life”, Willie Nelson's hit Red Headed Stranger and John L. Hooker's one Bourbon, one Scotch, One Beer among other songs in Eric’s vinyl stack, had Rolling Stone dub it the “most moving moment” on his new album.
As if his music and live performance aren’t enough proof of his prowess, Church has garnered a great deal of praise from the press as well as other major influential voices in the country music arena. “Eric Church is the greatest working rock superstar” proclaimed Stereo gum, while referring to him as “…. a down home everyman with conversational vocal delivery that surges into something big when needed to; and one who comes off as a very genuine human even while leading choreographed rigors of arena shows. And holy shit, Church has songs.” Philadelphia Inquirer described “just how superior this North Carolina artist actually is, in substance and style, to other big name pop country acts who pack sports venues nowadays,” The Memphis Commercial Appeal also, made a prediction that, “at his level, and based on the strength of such a sharp album as the “The Outsiders”, Eric Church is without a doubt both the mainstream rock artist of the year and the mainstream country artist of the year and his shows make a good case for this blend….” Further on, the Pittsburgh Post Gazette announced “…Church is a top contender for the new king of his genre. The genre being country, but the late North Carolina bloomer is the type of Southern rocker who “pledges allegiance to the hag” (Merle Haggard) while splashing a bit of Slayer's “Raining Blood” to the intro of “I’m Getting' Stoned.”
