Eric Church Announces 2nd Leg of ‘The Outsiders World Tour’

Eric Church

Eight long years ago, Eric Church stepped foot onto the stage of the legendary Madison Square Garden and changed the trajectory of his career forever. At the time, his debut album Sinners Like Me was receiving critical acclaim and his debut single “How Bout You” was climbing the charts and as opener for a country trio on a chilly October 14th, 2006 evening, Church was ready to play long and loud and late into the night…or at least that’s how the story goes.
The Chief hasn’t been back since.

Fast forward eight years, and the EMI Nashville recording artist is ready to recreate that long and loud and fateful night. Except this time, the Chief is in charge. Now holding the deserving title of headliner, Church is preparing to take the MSG stage once again on October 17th, 2014 in celebration of his top selling album The Outsiders, his rising single “Talledega” and the unveiling of the second leg of Eric Church: The Outsiders World Tour.

The much anticipated and long overdue show in New York City is just one of the many highlights of a year that has found Church tirelessly touring the country, consistently at the top of the charts and serving as the toast of a bevy of award shows. To commemorate his return performance in The Big Apple, Church will also perform on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, Oct. 15 on NBC at 11:35 pm ET/10:35 CT. At the upcoming 48th Annual CMA Awards, airing live on November 5 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC, The Outsiders is nominated for CMA Album of the Year and has also earned Church three additional CMA nominations for Male Vocalist of the Year, as well as both Single of the Year and Song of the Year for his No. 1 hit song “Give Me Back My Hometown.”

Church told The New York Times earlier this year, “I always say that we don’t make these songs for Music Row, we make them for the front row,” and both fans and critics agree. A Rolling Stone cover artist, the publication raves The Outsiders World Tour packs “a serious punch,” and SPIN Magazine notes “he’s the most exciting, sonically fearless singer in Nashville.”

And based on the staggering success of The Outsiders World Tour, Church will take on the New Year with the launch of the second leg of the tour in New Orleans on January 8th, 2015. The second leg of the 2015 tour will proceed as follows:

Jan. 8| New Orleans, LA| Smoothie King Center

Brandy Clark Wins First NSAI Award and Gears Up for Big Tours

Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Brandy Clark received her first NSAI Award last night when her song “Follow Your Arrow” (co-written with Shane McAnally and Kacey Musgraves and recorded by Musgraves) was named among the “10 Songs I Wish I Had Written” during the 44th Anniversary Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame Dinner & Induction Ceremony. This is the latest recognition for Clark, who is currently nominated for two CMA Awards for New Artist of the Year and Song of the Year (for “Follow Your Arrow”) and who recently won the 2014 Music Row Breakthrough Artist of the Year Award.

“‘Follow Your Arrow’ is such a special song to me because of how it has affected people,” said Clark. “I’ve had people tell me so many touching stories about the inspiration it has given them to be themselves and love themselves. Music has such power to make a difference and I’m thankful to be a part of that for people.”

During the event, Clark also performed in honor of Gretchen Peters, who was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.

“Being asked by Gretchen to be a part of her Hall of Fame induction is a highlight of my career. I am in awe of her. I learned how to write songs from listening to her.  I feel so privileged to have the opportunity to honor her by performing some of the very songs that inspired me to be a songwriter.”

Clark will return to the road this week and open for the legendary Loretta Lynn at a sold out show at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville this Friday (Oct. 10). She will then join Eric Church’s “The Outsiders World Tour” beginning on Oct. 16 in Charlottesville, VA. The tour includes a stop at New York’s Madison Square Garden on Oct. 17. Earlier this summer she opened for Jennifer Nettles on the “That Girl” tour, where the two artists teamed up to perform their duet “His Hands.”

“I don’t think I can truly say how excited I am to open for Loretta at the Ryman other than to say it will be a magical night. She is the queen of country music singer/songwriters who taught us all to write the truth,” said Clark before gushing, “And being asked to be a part of something as big as Eric’s ‘The Outsiders World Tour’ is mind-blowing! I’m so grateful for the opportunity and for his support of what I do. I got to check out his show a few weeks back, and it’s incredible. I can’t wait to start the tour.”
