Eric Church Exhibit Opening at Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum

Musical road warrior Eric Church, last year’s top selling country music artist, will be honored by the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum when he becomes the subject of their next cameo exhibition opening Sept. 18th. “Eric Church: Inside the Outsider” runs through February 2016 and will spotlight the North Carolina native’s hard-hitting path from a kid with a dream to becoming a multi-Platinum-selling country rocker filling arenas, amphitheaters and stadiums. The display will include guitars, song manuscripts, stage wear, photos and more personally chosen from Church’s collection.

For those fans wanting to see and purchase unique Church memorabilia before September arrives, the acclaimed singer/songwriter will reopen his pop-up store, The Outsider’s Joint, on July 30-Aug. 1 in East Nashville. The Outsider’s Joint will also offer These Boots by Lucchese, Church’s custom boot line usually only available to VIP ticketholders. In addition, there will be a limited number of special edition posters commemorating the first Ascend Amphitheater show and Church’s regular line of tour merchandise, most available with concierge service to ship items to your home for free. Proceeds, excluding the Lucchese boots, will benefit the Chief Cares Fund, a 501c3 non-profit organized by Church and his wife Katherine that serves more than 2.5 million people around the world. The Outsider’s Joint’s first appearance during CMA Music Festival was a smash success that raised more than $20,000 for Church’s Chief Cares Fund.

The Outsider’s Joint will be located at 218 South 11th Street in the 5 Points area of East Nashville across from the Bill Martin Grocery Store. Park at LP Field and receive a free ride to 5 Points (excluding tip) from JoyRide by calling (615) 285-9835, or use Uber code OUTSIDERS for $20 off your first ride. While there, a handful of local restaurants have special food and drink offers for those with Ascend Amphitheater tickets. The pop-up store hours are 12:00 PM-6:00 PM Thursday and Friday, and 10:00 AM-2:00 PM Saturday.

Church will christen Nashville’s new outdoor Ascend Amphitheater on July 30-31, making a rare second stop in Music City this year to perform two sold-out acoustic solo sets. He set a venue record in January when 18,411 fans crammed into Bridgestone Arena to catch The Outsiders World Tour, which is nearing one million tickets sold, has set five venue attendance records, and was ranked No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Tours recap in April.

Chris Pratt Says Eric Church Influenced His Role in Jurassic World

eric church

Actor Chris Pratt recently revealed to GQ Magazine a Eric Church song helped influence his role in Jurassic World.

On Jurassic World, all of Pratt’s ideas and approaches were combined into a kind of mantra that he would repeat to himself just before the camera rolled:

‘Flow core, no TC, volume up point five, Eric Church.’ Eric Church to remind him of ‘Dark Side,’ a song by Church that Pratt was listening to over and over, and the darkness in this character it encapsulated. ‘Flow core’ to remind him of his posture when he was paddleboarding. ‘Volume up point five’ to remind him to make his voice slightly louder. ‘No TC’ to remind him to lead with his forehead, in a formulation only a formerly fat man would think to use: No triple chin.”
