Outsiders Radio: Episode #30

August 1, 2017


Hey everybody, it’s Eric Church back for the thirtieth episode of “Outsiders Radio”.   I’ve had a couple months to recuperate from the Holdin’ My Own tour. Got to do some fishing, spend time with my boys and my wife, and anything else I could do that was NOT about being on the road.  I feel recharged, re-energized, and ready for a few more shows.  So that’s what I’m doing!  I’m hittin’ the road for my final shows of 2017.  It all begins Labor Day weekend in Stateline NV.


Feels good to hear those two songs again.  I’m Eric Church warmin’ up the bus, and getting’ ready to hit the road for a few more shows in September.  Joining me for the first two shows Labor Day weekend is a young artist who’s received a lot of attention named Margo Price.  She’s been a fixture in Nashville for a long time, performing for a while with Sturgill Simpson .  Her debut album, Midwest Farmer’s Daughter, was released last year.  Here are a couple songs from Margo Price.

That’s Margo Price, who will join me Labor Day weekend for a couple shows in Stateline NV.  I’m Eric Church previewing my September Tour on Outsiders Radio. The second weekend on September, I’ll go to Austin & Houston.  Joining me will be The Texas Gentlemen and Elle King.  By now, just about everyone knows Elle King from her duet last year with Dierks Bentley: Different For Girls.  But her fans know there’s a lot more to Elle King.

“You love her anyway”…that’s Elle King, who’ll join me in Austin on September 7, Houston on September 8, and Las Vegas on the 29th.  Let’s get one more from Elle, her duet with Dierks Bentley, winner of the CMA Vocal Event of the Year: Different For Girls.

I’m looking forward to having Elle King with me for three shows in September: Austin on the 7th, Houston on the 8th, and Las Vegas on the 29th.  Also on those shows will be a great new band called The Texas Gentlemen. 

Next on the calendar are two shows in Alabama: Tuscaloosa on the 15th and Orange Beach on the 16th.  Joining me for those shows will be Brothers Osborne and Ashley McBryde.  Let’s start with Ashley, who’s a new singer from Arkansas.  If you love honky tonk music, you’re gonna love Ashley.  She’s already opened for Willie Nelson, Hank Jr., and Marty Stuart.  So that should say everything you need to know.  But if you need a little more, just listen.


The unmistakably country sound of Ashley McBryde, who you’ll hear if you come to my shows in Tuscaloosa and Orange Beach AL September 15 and 16.  Also on those shows, a couple of guys who opened for me on The Outsiders Tour in 2014, and have since gone on to win both the CMA and ACM Vocal Duo of the Year awards, plus a pair of Grammy nominations.  Starting a new “family tradition,” here’s Brothers Osborne.

Always fun hangin’ with Brothers Osborne…hopefully they’ll bring some crab cakes to the shows in Alabama on September 15 & 16.  If not, I know a place in Orange Beach.  Anyway, I hope you can make it to at least one of our shows in September.  A reminder that they’re different from what we did on the Holdin’ My Own Tour.  And you can get more details about the shows, and register for Meet & Greet, by going to EricChurch.com.  In the meantime, we have a new single at country radio right now.  It’s from the Mr. Misunderstood album, this is “Round Here Buzz.”
