Eric Church Shatters Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena Attendance Record

Eric Church wants to know if you have any questions left. Church took the stage tonight in Nashville, TN at Bridgestone Arena demanding, once again, that the fans pay attention, crackling “Nashville, I have high expectations for you. I live here!” And the 18,411 fans in attendance at The Outsiders World Tour roared letting their ‘Chief’ know they were right there with him for the night. Church’s record-breaking crowd shatters the venue’s highest attended event, The Blue Collar Comedy Tour, set on Feb. 16, 2006.

This news comes on the heels of Church’s achievement as the top-selling and highest-selling album debut of 2014 with his RIAA Platinum certified The Outsiders and four GRAMMY nominations including Best Country Song for his third No. 1, “Give Me Back My Hometown,” and Best Country Album — bringing his career tally to seven.

Nashville’s The Scene dubbed Church a “modern country troubadour,” and tonight’s show lived up to that moniker with a set list varying across his 2006 critically-acclaimed debut Sinners Like Me to 2009’s Carolina and deep album cuts from his 2011 commercial breakthrough Chief. Church kicked off the night with the title track to his latest album, “The Outsiders,” but allowed the crowd in Nashville to feel like an insider as he reveled in the ups and downs depicted through the characters portrayed across his vast catalogue.

Church will continue The Outsiders World Tour on Wed., January 14 in Oklahoma City, OK at the Ford Center. To purchase ticket or learn more about Eric Church, visit www.ericchurch.com and www.facebook.com/ericchurch, or follow @EricChurch on Twitter.

Top 10 Country Albums of 2014

2014 was a big year for country music. Garth Brooks made an official comeback, Taylor Swift bailed for pop, Bro-Country hit the big time, and some of the best music in many years hit the airwaves and digital retailers. Here is CMTT’s picks for the top albums released in 2014. Love ‘em or hate ‘em.

brad paisley

10. Moonshine in the Trunk: Brad Paisley – Brad Paisley keeps his sense of humor and his ability to craft a stunning story alive with this album. “River Bank” takes us all back to the basics of a good time while “Perfect Storm” shows his appreciation for the female. “Gone Green” is an ode to his bluegrass inspirations.

Blake Shelton

9. Bringing Back the Sunshine: Blake Shelton – Blake’s new album has been made great thanks to some lovely lady harmonies. Ashley Monroe and Blake create haunting harmony in “Lonely Tonight.”

miranda lambert platinum

8. Platinum: Miranda Lambert – Miranda’s sass is back, and ‘Platinum’ surprised many with a medley of not-so-radio friendly songs that speak volumes about who Miranda Lambert really is. She’s sticking to her guns and her own sound bringing an old time country twist to some girl power tunes.

Little Big Town

7.Pain Killer: Little Big Town – Little Big Town has proven that the summer belongs to them with their release of “Day Drinking.” The quartet has no bounds to their talents, creating a glorious and sassy album.

6. Sundown Heaven Town: Tim McGraw – Tim McGraw is more current than ever thanks to ‘Sundown Heaven Town.’ Tim managed to bring the memories of earlier days and finer moments to life in this new album. I’m calling it his best album to date. It feels so authentic to where Tim came from.

Lee Brice I Don't Dance

5. I Don’t Dance: Lee Brice – Who expected the singer of “Parking Lot Party” to come with the next wedding song. Lee proves that he is at his best when he’s singing with a purpose and from the heart.

Kacey Musgraves

4.Same Trailer Different Park: Kacey Musgraves – Not since Taylor Swift has country music seen such a unique wordsmith as Kacey Musgraves. She has a way of weaving lyrics on subject matter that pushes the country envelope yet wrapped in a country sound that sounds more like Loretta Lynn than Florida Georgia Line. Kacey has managed to weave nursery rhymes into pot-smokin’ and girl-kissing poetry.

Brantley Gilbert

3. Just As I Am: Brantley Gilbert – Brantley left it all on the line with ‘Just As I Am,’ cranking out sexy tunes like “Let it Ride” and “Bottoms Up” along with super sad “Lights of My Hometown” and “I’m Gone.”

Eric Church- The Outsiders

2. The Outsiders: Eric Church – Every album Eric Church makes, is full of pride and impeccable story telling. ‘The Outsiders’ is no exception. Eric has honed his own unique style of story telling with his signature rebellious flare.

dierks bentley Riser

1. Riser: Dierks Bentley – Dierks has brought his A-game with ‘Riser,’ his most personal record to date. Dierks lets it all out there, with songs like “I Hold On” and “Damn These Dreams.” His ever present party and fun-loving side is clear in “Drunk on a Plane” which took on a life of it’s own at his live shows.
