Eric Church

Opening Night - 37 song setlist. Holdin' My Own Tour Officially Underway

With a few strums on his weathered Gibson guitar, Eric Church began his 2017 Holdin’ My Own Tour in Lincoln, Neb. Friday night, leading with “Mistress Named Music” from the CMA Album of the Year, Mr. Misunderstood.

Following the opening show at the Pinnacle Bank Arena, Church stopped in Grand Forks, N.D. at its Ralph Engelstad Arena on Saturday, Jan. 14 and Sioux Falls, S.D. at its Denny Sanford Premier Center on Sunday, Jan. 15, totaling 38,200 fans to whom the tenacious country rocker played.

Performing more than 90 songs and over nine hours in just one weekend, Church and his “superb” (Lincoln Journal Star) band played two complete sets of old and new favorites each night that brought, as the Lincoln Journal Star puts it, “a swinging ode to the power of ‘Jack Daniels’ complete with shots, small town stories à la ‘Homeboy’ and salutes to ‘Talladega’ that became a…

Eric Church's Journey Emulated in Furniture Collection, Highway to Home

The Highway to Home Collection, an original furniture line created by Eric Church, is now available at RoomsToGo locations and additional select retail outlets. The collection was inspired by Church's love of the road and exploration of the world combined with family traditions and the comforts that allow the most important adventures to happen…the ones in our homes.

On Church’s 2006 debut album, Sinners Like Me, Eric bore his worst fears in the lyrics of the autobiographical album cut, “What I Almost Was,” reminiscing, “Yeah, I moved on back home and came awful close / To being some son-in-law to some CEO / Coulda been a corner office, country club, suit and tie man / Answerin' to no one but her and him.” It was an ode to the life he relinquished when choosing to pursue a career in music instead of claiming his role at the booming family furniture business in Granite Falls,…
