Eric Church to Perform Concert Benefitting The GRAMMY Foundation

Eric Church

EMI Nashville recording artist Eric Churchwill perform a benefit concert for The GRAMMY Foundation® at The Orpheum Theater in Madison, Wisconsin on Wednesday, Oct. 8 at 8:00 PM. Tickets for “An Evening with Eric Church” will go on sale Friday, Sept. 12 at 10:00 AM. This will be his normal full band concert, but with no opening act. General admission tickets are $67 plus applicable service fees. A limited number of VIP reserved tickets will sell for $87.

The GRAMMY Foundation was established in 1988 to cultivate the understanding, appreciation and advancement of the contribution of recorded music to American culture — from the artistic and technical legends of the past to the still unimagined musical breakthroughs of future generations of music professionals. The Foundation accomplishes this mission through programs and activities that engage the music industry and cultural community as well as the general public. The Foundation works in partnership year-round with The Recording Academy to bring national attention to important issues such as the value and impact of music and arts education and the urgency of preserving our rich cultural heritage.

Named among the “50 Greatest Live Acts Right Now” by Rolling Stone, Church will embark on the first leg of his “The Outsiders World Tour” this Thursday, Sept. 11 at the CenturyLink Center in Bossier City, LA. His current album, The Outsiders, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart and the Billboard Country Albums Chart earlier this year, and recently earned him four CMA nominations for Album of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, and Single and Song of the Year for his hit “Give Me Back My Hometown.” His current hit single “Cold One” is rising up the charts.

The Third Annual Eric Church Band “Put a Club in My Hand” Golf Tournament was held Monday, Aug. 4 at Gaylord Springs Golf Links. The event raised $112,864 for MusiCares®, the charitable arm of The Recording Academy® which provides a safety net of assistance for those in the music industry to help with medical, financial and personal emergencies. The funds for the donation were raised through 160 registered golfers, more than 45 generous partners (including EMI Records Nashville, Q Prime, Sony/ATV Music Publishing, BMI, Hard Rock Café, AEG Live/The Messina Group, WME, Jack Daniel’s, Dos Equis, and more), and a silent auction featuring items from artists including Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Easton Corbin, Florida Georgia Line, Colt Ford, Taylor Swift, and The Cadillac Three, as well as the Nashville Predators and multiple NFL, MLB, and NBA franchises.

After only three years, the event has raised more than $275,000 for MusiCares. The invitation-only tournament was an all-day event featuring an 18-hole scramble for artists, musicians, tour staff, music industry professionals, and more.

“MusiCares is overwhelmed by the generous support of the Eric Church Band and their annual Golf Tournament,” raves Debbie Carroll, Executive Director at MusiCares, “Over the past three years, the tournament has grossed close to $275,000 and those funds have gone to helping so many music people in need. They are ensuring that we can continue to make a true difference in the lives of many. We can’t thank them enough.”

Fans can watch Church and his band members perform and act in his new music video, “Cold One,” HERE. The song, written by Church, Jeff Hyde, and Lynn Hutton, is featured on Church’s current album The Outsiders.
