• ERIC CHURCH’S THE GATHER AGAIN TOUR NAMED BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS’ TOP COUNTRY TOUR.

    Ahead of closing out the U.S. leg of his 55-show The Gather Again Tour at New York City’s Madison Square Garden on May 20, Eric Church takes home 2022’s Billboard Music Awards’ Top Country Tour award; an award he wears like a badge of honor.

    Just over a year ago Church graced the magazine’s cover talking about the future of touring: how, when and what it would feel like, with The Wall Street Journal taking note of his leadership pioneering the return of arena-sized live music.

    “We all held faith that live music would return,” reminds the CMA Entertainer of the Year winner of the two year hiatus spent away from the Church Choir. “Every night when we hit the stage there’s a moment where I think we can’t go any harder; then we see someone in the crowd who reminds us how fortunate this time is together because they’re so in it … and it’s like we’re in overtime. The stakes are higher and the plays are bigger. To take home this award means that we all came through this together because we believed we would, and we did. And music did that. Country music did that.”

    Church continues to expand the parameters of his live shows with two distinct one-night-only stadium concerts at Milwaukee’s American Family Field on May 28 and Minneapolis’ U.S. Bank Stadium on June 11 on the heels of The Gather Again Tour’s U.S. wrap.

    “Playing Nissan Stadium as our last show in 2019 without knowing it was our last left an impression on us,” he adds. “When there’s that much raw energy in one place, it creates a different kind of show. It’s not something we want to do night-after-night, but in the right stadium on the right night, we gotta keep it going!”

    About Eric Church
    Eric Church spent last year releasing new music at a relentless pace; sharing the results of a marathon session during which he spent nearly a month writing and recording a song per day while sequestered in rural North Carolina – including his latest Gold-certified No. 1 “Hell of a View” and Top 5 “Heart On Fire.” The resulting critically acclaimed and chart-topping three-part project, Heart & Soul, is available everywhere now.

    Just as unique as Church’s approach to recording and releasing music is his tenacity on the road. During 2019’s Double Down Tour, Church played back-to-back nights of two unique shows in each market sans opening act, giving every city’s fans six-plus hours of his iconic music. The tour also featured a massive stop at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, where he broke the venue’s concert attendance record with more than 56,000 fans in attendance and became the first artist to sell out the venue with a solo lineup. Church has now returned to the road for his 55-city The Gather Again Tour, visiting full-capacity arenas for an in-the-round show. He is also scheduled to headline two one-of-a-kind stadium shows this summer; May 28 in Milwaukee in June 11 in Minneapolis.

    A seven-time ACM Award winner, four-time CMA Award winner (including the 2020 award for Entertainer of the Year), Billboard Music Awards’ 2022 Top Country Tour winner and 10-time GRAMMY nominee, Church has amassed a passionate fanbase around the globe known as the Church Choir as well as a critically acclaimed catalog of music. His previous project, the Gold-certified Desperate Man, earned a GRAMMY nomination for Best Country Album (his third nod in the category). Prior releases include the Platinum-certified Sinners Like Me (“How ’Bout You,” “Guys Like Me”), Carolina (“Smoke a Little Smoke,” “Love Your Love the Most”) and Mr. Misunderstood (“Record Year,” “Round Here Buzz”), the Double-Platinum certified The Outsiders (“Like a Wrecking Ball,” “Talladega”) and the 3x Platinum-certified Chief (“Springsteen,” “Drink In My Hand”)as well as 30 Gold, Platinum and multi-Platinum certified singles.

  • MOTHER’S DAY AUDIO 2022

    Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 8th, and some of your favorite country artists are celebrating the mothers in their lives this weekend. In 1914, Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation designating Mother’s Day, held on the second Sunday in May, as a national holiday to honor mothers.

    Audio / Alan Jackson lost his sweet Mama several years ago, and he wrote a song for her funeral, “Where Her Heart Has Always Been,” which is now included on his album Where Have You Gone.

    Download

    Alan Jackson (song for mother)…really, really sweet. :51
    “I think one song on there, especially I wrote my mama died three or four years ago, four years ago maybe.  I don’t remember now. But I wrote it for her funeral, that’s “Where Her Heart Has Always Been.”  And I really love that track.  It’s just really – I tried to write it in a way that I know she would appreciate it. And then after we had cut it and we were just about to finalize the record, my sister sent a recording of mama reading from the Bible for a Christmas story or something from a few years ago that I hadn’t heard, or I don’t remember if I had ever heard it.  And I thought that would be cool to put that on there.  So, we tried to pick a little piece of that that didn’t sound so Christmasy and put on there on the front end and that made it really, really sweet.”

    Audio / Carrie Underwood says she doesn’t really have any Mother’s Day traditions.

    Carrie Underwood (Mother’s Day traditions) OC: …even more so. :38
    “We don’t really have like any Mother’s Day traditions. I feel like I remember me and Dad making breakfast for Mom like once as a kid. I’m pretty sure we just made a giant mess in the kitchen and we never did that again, so. Being on the other side of things, I obviously don’t expect anything, but my husband’s really good at getting presents from quote unquote Isaiah. It’s really sweet, because he likes to bring me things. He’s such a sweet little guy, and anytime he’s outside, he’ll pick me flowers and things. So, I’m like, ‘You’re learning. You’ve already got me wrapped around your finger, and then you do stuff like that, and it’s even more so.’”

    Audio / Caylee Hammack describes the qualities she most admires in her mother.

    Caylee Hammack (Mother’s Day) 1 OC: …love fully. :53
    “I love that my Mom is a no-nonsense woman. I love that she always speaks her mind and she’s super stubborn, because she handed it down to me and it’s come in handy, to be honest. She’s a great cook. I wish I was half the cook that she is. She’s obsessive about Tupperware and plates, which I used to hate, but now as an adult whenever I break a dish or something, I just call her, and I know that I have one on standby. I love that she loves random things so that I can squirrel them away and take them to Nashville sometimes. And I love that she loves big. She either gives all of her heart or nothing at all; she always gives all of her heart. She loves, you know, she has a bleeding heart, and I think that’s just one of the most beautiful traits in the world is to love fully.”

    Darius Rucker (favorite memory of his mother) OC: …my Mom’s song. :34
    “Oh goodness! A lot of great memories of her, but probably one of my favorite memories, I was a young kid, probably eight or nine, and she was in the kitchen cooking and listening to the gospel station and Shirley Caesar’s ‘No Charge’ came on and she was singing ‘No Charge.’ I just remember I ran into our living room which was adjoined to our kitchen and I just sat there and I just listened to her sing that song, and I remember thinking, ‘Wow! What an amazing voice.’ That’s just always a memory I’ve always had, and that song still to this day when I hear it just moves me because that was my mom’s song.”

    Audio / Darius Rucker talks about the unwavering support he felt from his mother (who passed away several years ago).

    Darius Rucker (Mother) OC: …in my corner. :44
    “My mom was just always great. She worked a lot. She was a nurse and she worked a lot. She took a lot of overtime and stuff to make sure we could live basically, but she always just so supportive, ever since I was a kid. I was always a music kid. Growing up in an African-American neighborhood, I was never that guy who was gonna be pigeonholed to let people say I could only listen to this and I could only do this, because I was African-American. She always supported whatever I wanted to do, whatever I wanted to listen to, wherever I wanted to go, she always had my back. Going to college and everything, she was my biggest supporter and never let my brothers and sisters knock me down or try to tell me I can’t do this or that. All of my success comes because my mother was always in my corner.”

    Dierks (Mother’s Day) OC: …for sure. :20
    “When it’s your actual mom, you know, there’s some slack there, but when with your wife – any touring husband, anyone who tours who has kids and a wife back home, it’s tough man. It’s a lot of work. So, I definitely need to step up to think of something great to do this Sunday, for sure.”

    Audio / Eric Church says he’s learned quite a bit from his mom.

    Download

    Eric Church (Mother’s Day) OC: …as a man. :57
    “My mom, even though my dad won’t like this, my mom is by far the toughest person that I’ve met. She’s tough. One of those people that’s been through a lot in her life, adversity wise and never complains, always really resilient with anything that’s happened to her. And it’s just that attitude, the positive attitude, regardless of what has happened that I think is the one thing that I got from her. With career, she’s always been a person that’s been really positive through times that I couldn’t find a positive streak, [laughs] and she was always really positive, and very much believes in tough it out, keep working hard, and that’s her motto with stuff like that. I’ve always been impressed with that stuff. Then musically, she’s where I get my talent from, musically. She sings great, always has, her mom sang great. I owe my musical chops to her. And she still sings some. So, career-wise, I owe her everything. And just in life-wise she’s given me a lot of the qualities that it has taken for me to get me where I am. Not only as a musician, but as a man.”

    Jon Pardi (Mother’s Day) OC: …worrying about me. :29
    “My mom’s always been there for me. First of all, she’s a great mom. She’s an angel. She takes care of people that aren’t even in the family. She’s always been like that, and she’s a great mother. She’s always proud, and she’s always there supporting and being a great mom. She’s just a good human being. There’s not one mean bone in her body. And she cries about every time I talk to her. She always worries about me. I have to tell her, ‘Stop worrying about me.’”

    Jordan Davis (Mother’s Day) OC: …Mother’s Day. :30 [laughs]
    “I’m a Mama’s Boy. I love my Mom, and it’s the way she finds the good in everything. With my Mom, as opposed to finding anything negative, she’s gonna find something positive first. That’s something I really hope I can be more like her on; one of the many things I wish I could be more like my mom on. My mom, she loves flowers, so we’ll get her flowers or take her to, we’re slowly getting her into sushi, so we love to take Mom out to sushi spots on Mother’s Day.” [laughs]

    Keith Urban (Nicole is extraordinary mother) OC: …to see. :45
    “She’s an extraordinary mum, she really, really is. Those girls are very, very lucky, and I feel very lucky that the children I should have in this world happen to be with Nic. I don’t know anything about raising kids and Nic does, and that comes in extremely, um, it’s really made for an experience I wouldn’t have had without that. Her patience, her recognizing them as people and not just little kids is really extraordinary. Her attention to honoring their feelings and listening to them right from day one – really being attentive to that is not how I was raised at all, so it’s really beautiful to see.”

    Audio / Little Big Town’s Kimberly Schlapman says she always dreamed of being a mother…and her dream came true nearly 15 years ago when she gave birth to daughter, Daisy (July 27, 2007). In 2017, she and her family welcomed daughter Dolly Grace.

    LBT (Mother’s Day) OC: …for my mother. :34
    “Being a mother is a life-long dream for me. When I was a kid, that’s what I wanted to be is a mama. It took a long time. I wasn’t ever sure that I would be, but I am now, and it’s the greatest gift of my life. And as I’m a mother now, I see what my mother gave up and her sacrifices and her love and how she made us the most important thing in her life, and that’s what I strive to do for my little girl. It’s the most important job I have, and it’s the most responsibility that I have, and I try to live up to a great example that I had for my mother.”

    Maddie & Tae (Mother’s Day-Tae) OC: …was so fun. :25
    TAE: “To this day one of the best surprises I’ve ever pulled off was on Mother’s Day three years ago. ‘Cause my mom’s birthday always tends to fall on Mother’s Day Weekend – it’s coming up – and my mom and dad were coming into Nashville and I was like, ‘Okay-this has got to be a big weekend. It’s Mother’s Day, her birthday and the weather was going to be beautiful, so I planned this awesome surprise where we would drive first – she wouldn’t know where we were going, and then we ended up going canoeing down the Harpeth River [located south of Nashville], and it was so fun.”

    Maddie & Tae (Mother’s Day-Maddie) OC: (Maddie) …everything’s okay. :51
    MADDIE: “She is so good at balancing is what I’m trying to say. My Mom is such a great balancer, but as I’m coming into our adulthood, and all that kind of stuff, she’s very conscious about when I’m trying to be perfect and have everything in order with everything. And she’s like, you can’t. You can’t do that. Life, you have to figure out how you’re going to deal with the curveballs that are thrown out you. Are you going to catch them and whine out about it or are you going to catch them and move on? Like you have to just go with what’s thrown at you. And my Dad’s been a really, really good supporter on just not letting life’s trials bring you down and letting them just be learning tools and all of that. But, most of the time, a Mama hug can really fix anything.” TAE: “Ahh…it’s the best.” MADDIE: “If my Mom hugs me while I’m crying, everything’s okay. There’s just something about it. I’m grown, but, my Mom, if she hugs me, everything’s okay.”

Everybody says I look like her. She’s just an incredibly caring and very, very sincere person, so I would hope I got those from her.”

    Sam Hunt (Mother’s Day) OC: … with my mom. 1:10
    “I knew I had a great mother, and I was blessed and lucky to be born into my family, but until I got out into the real world, I didn’t realize how unique and rare and how much I really hit the lottery with her. She’s raised in the South, and she is all the things that a lot of Southern women are, the good things, but selfless is the word that comes to mind right off the bat. Her life has been devoted to me, my brothers and our family for as long as I can remember her. So, her life revolved around us and that was something that the love that she showed us through those sacrifices has been, I know, a huge part of my ability to go out into the world and cope with all the things that come my way. I’m standing on firm ground, I know, because I grew up in a loving household and that started with my mom.”

I mean, she’s turned me on to a lot of artists, but at the core like she’s still Mom. She reminds me to do things and does these things which that I couldn’t live without. I love that we get to be friends, we get to be best friends, but at the same time, she’s still Mom and she still loves me and my sister like crazy.”

  • ERIC CHURCH CELEBRATES THE ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED HEART & SOUL TRIPLE ALBUM WITH EXCLUSIVE BOX SETS.

    In the year since the April 2021 release of his triple album, Heart & Soul, the man praised by Stereogum as “our greatest working rock star” has earned his 10th career GRAMMY nomination as well as his fourth and fifth Entertainer of the Year nominations from the ACM and CMA, respectively, while taking Gold-certified single “Hell of a View” to the top of the charts at country radio with “Heart On Fire” also hitting the Top 5. To celebrate the anniversary of the ambitious project, Eric Church now offers two exclusive box sets of the project in limited quantities – including the chance for the general public to purchase the Church Choir exclusive middle album, &, for the first time.

    In addition to all three albums pressed on a unique splattered colored vinyl, the Standard Box Set priced at $89.99 also includes one of three limited-edition numbered posters in each set. The Super Deluxe Box Set priced at $349.99 also features the three records and all three limited-edition numbered posters with a special foil print not found anywhere else as well as a slip mat, hemp tote bag, coaster set, record brush, exclusive liner book that includes never before seen photos of the recording process, studio and writers and an exclusive note from Church. For more information and to purchase both sets, visit heartandsoul.ericchurch.com.

    “I’ve always been intrigued when a song is born in a writer room – there is a magic that happens there,” shared Church of the unique process that went into creating the triple album when first announcing the project. “I wanted to put that in the studio form. So, every day, we would write a song in the morning and we would record the song that night… The interesting thing about this process is that Jay kept asking me the last three or four days, ‘Are we done?’ and at that time I didn’t know what the project was. I kept saying ‘God, this is going to be really hard. There’s a lot here. Is this a double album? And if it’s a double album, how do we leave out these five or six songs?’ I am the hardest critic on making sure every song deserves to be on the record, and I beat this thing to death going ‘this can’t be that good.’ But it was just a special, special time and a special, special project that I think will be among our best.”

    Indeed, both the industry and critics agreed, with the relentless pace of songs first rolled out from the ambitious project in 2020 helping to propel him to that year’s CMA Entertainer of the Year title and the project going on to be named among 2021’s best by Rolling StoneBillboardStereogumTennesseanNashville SCENETaste of CountryThe BootSounds Like NashvilleSaving Country Music, Whiskey Riff and more.

    The Wall Street Journal celebrated the project from the man who is “knowledgeable and respectful of country’s history, but not shackled by it” as “pointed, memorable recordings for tough times, with frankness, hope—and engaging sounds,” while Entertainment Weekly remarked that “the albums feature some of the most liberating and freewheeling work of the [44]-year-old country star’s career” and Rolling Stone declared that with Heart & Soul, “the Nashville maverick delivers his biggest, boldest statement,” offering further proof that “no recent country artist has maneuvered the Nashville system as successfully, remaining dedicated to the power of down-the-center hitmaking even as he’s helped expand the parameters of the genre.”

    Church continues to expand such parameters in his live shows as well, taking The Gather Again Tour across the U.S. and Canada to critical acclaim while announcing two distinct one-night-only stadium concerts at Milwaukee’s American Family Field on May 28 and Minneapolis’ U.S. Bank Stadium on June 11.

    About Eric Church
    Eric Church spent last year releasing new music at a relentless pace; sharing the results of a marathon session during which he spent nearly a month writing and recording a song per day while sequestered in rural North Carolina – including his latest Gold-certified No. 1 “Hell of a View” and current Top 5-and-climbing single “Heart On Fire.” The resulting critically acclaimed and chart-topping three-part project, Heart & Soul, is available everywhere now.

    Just as unique as Church’s approach to recording and releasing music is his tenacity on the road. During 2019’s Double Down Tour, Church played back-to-back nights of two unique shows in each market sans opening act, giving every city’s fans six-plus hours of his iconic music. The tour also featured a massive stop at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, where he broke the venue’s concert attendance record with more than 56,000 fans in attendance and became the first artist to sell out the venue with a solo lineup. Church also took to the field at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium in 2021 to perform the National Anthem with R&B star Jazmine Sullivan ahead of Super Bowl LV and has now returned to the road for his 55-city The Gather Again Tour, visiting full-capacity arenas for an in-the-round show. He also headlined the recent ATLive festival at Mercedes-Benz Stadium with George Strait for a special night of “The King & The Chief” and will headline two one-of-a-kind stadium shows this summer; May 28 in Milwaukee in June 11 in Minneapolis.

    A seven-time ACM Award winner, four-time CMA Award winner (including the 2020 award for Entertainer of the Year) and 10-time GRAMMY nominee, Church has amassed a passionate fanbase around the globe known as the Church Choir as well as a critically acclaimed catalog of music. His previous project, the Gold-certified Desperate Man, earned a GRAMMY nomination for Best Country Album (his third nod in the category). Prior releases include the Platinum-certified Sinners Like Me (“How ’Bout You,” “Guys Like Me”), Carolina (“Smoke a Little Smoke,” “Love Your Love the Most”) and Mr. Misunderstood (“Record Year,” “Round Here Buzz”), the Double-Platinum certified The Outsiders (“Like a Wrecking Ball,” “Talladega”) and the 3x Platinum-certified Chief (“Springsteen,” “Drink In My Hand”)as well as 30 Gold, Platinum and multi-Platinum certified singles.

     

    Audio / ERIC CHURCH EXPLAINS WHY HE NAMED HIS NEW MULTI-ALBUM PROJECT, HEART & SOUL.

    Download

    Eric Church (Heart & Soul) OC: …Heart & Soul is. 1:55
    Heart & Soul — I think that everybody wants to know why Heart & Soul and it’s interesting. I think for me, I didn’t go in there trying to make two albums or three albums. That is not what I tried to do; that is not what this was about. But I think it was about a moment, and what I found when I listened back to the project is there were a lot of songs that had heart in them or cars or guitars or music, and I think that’s because that’s what was on my mind at the time. And what I found that was interesting is there were two groups that they were this kind of song and then this kind of song that kind of grouped together. And then there was this middle five or six songs and I didn’t know where they went. They were cool. And then the thought was raised — do they belong together and that’s the first time that three albums came out. I would initially have said nah. I’m a cynic. I’m a music guy. If you tell me you made three albums, I say well you made one decent one. Just me. That’s not what this is. These are three different feels. These are three different things. They sound the same because they were made in the same moment, but they group up different. And yes, we could have done just Heart and Soul and there would have been six songs that didn’t make it anywhere. But I don’t think that’s right. I think that if you listen to them, they have their own thing. They belong in their own spot. And that’s what ended up at least conceptually with what Heart & Soul is.”

  • ERIC CHURCH IS CELEBRATING THE ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF HIS HEART & SOUL PROJECT.

    Eric Church is celebrating the one-year anniversary of his three-record collection, Heart & Soul, this week. The project was a huge undertaking and he had no idea it would end up on three separate records.

    “I thought it was one album. I didn’t know if it would even happen. The great thing about this song, ‘Heart On Fire,’ is it was the first one we recorded, and if this one had not had worked, I don’t know that the project would’ve worked, because at the time, I had not convinced everybody that this was the thing to do,” says Eric. “My band was pretty skeptical, my producer was skeptical, the songwriters I had onsite were skeptical. What I found is everybody kind of committed the way I thought they would with we knew what we had to do, and we had a songwriter that knew, hey, we have to do this because we’re recording tonight, and we have to get this right and we have to figure this out. This can’t be bad. And you really had people that really just committed to it and the band and the producer, they committed to it, and then I was singing, I committed to it. And it just became four, five, six songs in, we knew we kinda had a special thing going.”

    Eric took his band, producer and songwriters out of the normal environments to write and record at a restaurant in the mountains of North Carolina, not knowing what the project would look or sound like, but knowing he wanted to shake things up a bit. What he found was a huge commitment to making it all work.

    “What I found is there’s something about doing something different that there’s a belief there,” he says. “Every night we would eat together. Every morning we would be together. And they respected the players, the songwriters. They all respected what I was trying to do. I was honest with them. I said, ‘Hey, I may bring in a song. This song may suck but I wrote it today so give me – I have not slept. Give me a break.’ So, I think at some point in time they committed themselves to what we were trying to do and they gave 110% of that. They knew this dude has been up all night. This dude is trying and we’re going to try, too. And I think that there’s something to that overall, pulling on the rope the same way that made it – made it what it is. Made the project what it is.”

    Church released the first of his three records, Heart, April 16th, 2021. He created the middle album of the trilogy, &, specifically for the Church Choir (his fan club), which was available exclusively to them only as a vinyl record and was released April 20th, 2021. The third installment, Soul, was released April 23rd.

    Eric is racing to the top of the country charts with his latest single, “Heart On Fire.”

    “I want to say Happy Anniversary to the Heart & Soul album. I can’t believe it’s been a year since it’s been out. It will always be, they will always be among my most favorite records to make because we wrote and recorded a song the same day. It was a challenge, it was hard as hell, but it was also the most in-the-moment, the most spiritual, the most connected I think I’ve been to a project, and it has been a joy to play those on the Gather Again Tour. It’s been a joy to watch them grow, it’s been a joy to throw in new songs here and there and watch people react to it. It’s just been a lot of fun. My favorite thing as an artist is to watch these grow over time. It’s happened every time in our career.”

    “We would always have the Easter Egg Hunt before church. You know, my mom, she would dress us in these ridiculous, pastel-colored, gosh, good Lord, I’m sorry for saying this, but the worst part about Easter for me is some of the photos I have of what my mom dressed us in. It was hideous! But yeah, that was it growing up. We would have our Easter Egg Hunt, and I think for me early on, and probably like a lot of kids, Easter was another Sunday where it was a very mini, mini Christmas. We’d get some candy, every once in a while, we’d get a present, something that we wanted, we’d go to church, and everybody looked great. It was like the day to wear the new dress or the guys had these crazy ties on or something like that. And it really wasn’t until, I think, I was able to kinda hit my high school years and kind of start to strengthen my faith that I realized how special that holiday was.”

My parents would always dress us up in these really cute springy outfits. But, yeah, Easter with family is always so much fun.” MADDIE: “Our Easter was very similar. My grandma would always get us this white chocolate cross with little flowers on it. It was so delicious. And me and my sister typically had matching dresses, which annoyed me at the time, but looking back it was precious. But Easter for us, Tae and I love us some Jesus! That is our favorite dude ever!

  • ERIC CHURCH ANNOUNCES ONE-OF-A-KIND SHOW WITH MORGAN WALLEN AT MINNEAPOLIS’ U.S. BANK STADIUM THIS SUMMER.

    After first breaking the news to his Church Choir faithful last night, CMA Entertainer of the Year/superstar Eric Church now officially announces his second headlining stadium show this summer, with “One Hell of a Night in Minneapolis” set for Saturday, June 11 at U.S. Bank Stadium. The supersized show will see the 10-time GRAMMY nominee joined by fellow songwriting craftsmen Morgan Wallen and ERNEST.

    Today’s announcement adds to an already remarkable year for the man celebrated by Stereogum as “one of the biggest touring musicians on earth,” as rock-infused anthem “Heart On Fire” climbs the Top 10 at country radio and The Gather Again Tour holds the top spot on Pollstar’s Live75 chart for back-to-back weeks, with Variety proclaiming: “For a guy whose concerts time out at three hours a night, the pandemic’s break was but a way to rest up and blast off, ferociously.”

    The update follows Church’s recent news that he will also headline a Milwaukee stadium show over Memorial Day weekend, with Brothers Osborne and Parker McCollum joining him at American Family Field on Saturday, May 28.

    “Church is never predictable — aside from the fact that he consistently stages one of the most explosive (and longest) sets in country music,” the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel remarked upon that show’s announcement. “For the second stadium-headlining show of his life, expect Church to give his fans his all.”

    Tickets to the U.S. Bank Stadium show go on sale to the general public Friday, March 11 at 10 a.m. CT via EricChurch.com. Members of the Church Choir will have early access to tickets beginning Friday, March 4. Tickets to the American Family Field show and remaining dates of The Gather Again Tour are on sale now.

    Church Choir members will also have the exclusive opportunity to gather together for a pre-show tailgate at U.S. Bank Stadium by adding the “Church Choir Pre-Show Tailgate” during the Church Choir pre-sale to access to the pre-show tailgate with food trucks, two drink tickets, a special gift, tailgate games, giveaways and more. Also at the stadium and open to the general public will be a pop-up store with These Boots by Lucchese (Church’s exclusive signature boot line).
