Eric Church may never get the credit he truly deserves from his peers on the many award shows, but he had one of if not the best album of 2014. Finally the Chief got some credit where credit is due for his efforts most importantly writing almost all of the amazing Outsiders record (unlike most other artists out there), producing and sharing it with his loyal fan base, and of course creating a record braking and great Outsiders tour. Even with the Outsiders mainstream success the album isn’t necessarily radio friendly, perhaps pushing away many awards from Eric and the band. The Church Choir has always understood Eric’s unique style towards each album and love his rebel attitude, and finally the public have spoken making the Outsiders record go platinum. Thanks Chief for all your music can’t wait for the next chapter of an already illustrious career.

Okay so this is kinda a rant. Let me just say, Eric doesn't get enough credit for what he deserves. Every nomination Eric has he never gets. And trust me is up against some good people like Album of the year he was against Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan,etc. and he never gets it. Like this year I forgot which award show buy Miranda won. I have both albums and trust and I'm not trying to be biased about this but I truly think Eric deserved that award 100% more than Miranda. Sure she wrote a few of her songs and they are good, but Eric wrote the majority of his songs off of the album is not all of them. Eric also didn't create The Outsiders album to win awards or create hits. In an interview he simply says he does each album differently by exploring different sounds and genres to get out of his comfort zone and to be creative during the making of each album, which shows that he deserves this awards even more. I'm not here to bash any of the other country artists, I'm just stating simply why I think Eric deserves more credit. Eric literally started from nothing. He starting playing in Nashville's Centennial Park with just him and a guitar in the back of his truck, and now look where he is. Ii am so proud to be an Eric Church fan. He stands for great things and I am glad with the success and credit he has already earned. Don't get me wrong, I am completely ecstatic and super proud with his success he already has I'm just trying to say that Eric deserves way more than he has. He is an unbelievable song writer, and an amazing musician and performer all around. Okay that is all for my rant and I'm not trying to bash anyone in the Country Music Industry.
So excited that I was able to get pit tickets for the second time in a row, last time I saw him in Memphis and had general admission pit tickets and I was 1st row. I could literally see him spiting and sweating when he was performing. It was the single most amazing concert I had ever been to. He's also a great performer because he would look us and different people on the floor/1st row in the eye which was special. He even sign a little boy's boot the was standing beside me when he was singing "These Boots". Eric is the real deal, but that's nothing new to me. I have been a fan of Eric's for YEARS and his music and just all around personality keeps getting better each year.
This is it! It's getting closer! Only 1 WEEK until I get to see one of the greatest current country musicians in the business right now. I can't contain my excitement!!! Eric Church is such a great performer. He sounds just as great live as on the radio probably even better. I've been listening to Eric since his early days like Love Your Love The Most. At this concert I really hope he sings Longer Gone, Carolina, You Make It Look So Easy, I'm Getting Stoned and I would really like to see him perform Broke Record since he didn't sing it at the Memphis show. Broke Record has to be one of my favorites from his latest album along with Like A Wrecking Ball.
I want to thank each and everyone of you for your support and contributions to Eric's birthday tribute. The idea came to me while I was waiting for test results that would eventually change my life. A special thanks to Eric's Outsiders. I presented the idea to them first, and they were very supportive. Again, thanks to all of you. Donor Services thinks we had a good first time showing and I am sure Eric and Katherine appreciate your thoughtfulness and generosity. For those of you who don't already know, I was (one of) the fan(s) who had the awesome experience of sharing a shot with Eric at the Philly concert. I am so proud to be a loyal fan of the most amazing and talented man; a man whose fan oriented, compassionate nature was on display for all to see.
Hi everyone. Thanks for being so patient with me. Decided the easiest way to do this is to post part of the email from Donor Services. "A summary of gifts to Chief Cares after May closed. 20 gifts were posted to the financials for Chief Cares Fund. Most had some note referencing Eric's birthday, but those that didn't were also attributed to the campaign given Regular donation activity. The 20 gifts totaling $620 range from five dollars to $100. Gifts came from donors in the following locations: TN, NC, KY, IN, OH, NJ, MA, MD, TX, IL, NM and Canada.I know you were shooting for the moon in terms of donations you expected, but know that I think the number and the amount you received was a really good first time showing. Thanks for your efforts. This money will go for the great programs Chief Cares supports.
