Where can you go to enjoy great music, visit with a native Arkansan and see the definition of country? The Blood, Sweat & Beer Tour featuring Eric Church will have it all. Joined by Justin Moore and Kip Moore, Church will take the stage Thursday, December 6 at Verizon Arena.
Eric Church was born May 3, 1977 in Granite Falls, North Carolina. He graduated from South Caldwell High School and from there, went to Appalachian State University where he earned a bachelor’s degree in marketing.
His first album, Sinners Like Me, was released July 18, 2006. With songs such as “Sinners Like Me” and “Can’t Take It With You” put him on the mainstream radar. It wasn’t until his 2nd release, Carolina, that he became a force to be reckoned with. “Smoke A Little Smoke” was his first single off the album. I can’t even count the number of times I have heard that song. Another single on the album that is beautiful is “Carolina,” written about him going home to North Carolina.
His third album, Chief, went on sale July 26, 2011. He has four singles out on the radio from this album, “Creepin’,” “Drink in My Hand,” “Homeboy” and “Springsteen.” Eric Church has successfully mastered his art. There are very few that have his sound.
Joining Eric Church is Arkansas native, Justin Moore. Born and raised in Poyen, Arkansas, I bet Justin is ecstatic to be back in his home state. Justin will be singing some of his hits, such as “Backwoods,” “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away,” “Bait a Hook” and “Small Town USA.”
Also performing is Kip Moore. Kip is from Tifton, Georgia. His music is edgy and optimistic. His hit singles have been “Something About a Truck” and “Beer Money.”
For any type of music fan, this is a show one cannot miss. It will have a country/southern rock feel to it. I personally cannot wait to see this show. I hope to see you there.
