NASHVILLE, Tenn. – To really understand how Eric Church feels about the Holdin’ My Own Tour, you have to see things from his perspective standing at the mic. For the last five months, country music’s most electric performer has stood face-to-face with nearly 1 million people and truly connected.

“This tour has been my career’s biggest challenge physically, but I can honestly say I'm gonna miss it,” shared Church after a record-setting, 42-song set at Saturday’s show (that went well into Sunday morning). “Seeing what happens between us and the crowd for over three hours a night is awe inspiring. I'm gonna miss seeing those faces and freezing that moment in time night after night.”

When Eric Church’s 2017 Holdin’ My Own Tour launched in January, the sixty-two-stop tour encompassing 40+ states and provinces in less than five months promised to give fans everything in Church’s arsenal.
