ToC Encore: Who Is Eric Church?

Subscribe to Taste of Country on

On stage, Eric Church plays with fire — literally. He shouts and cusses, and even gestures to band mates to get them riled up. He’ll pump a fist and point at the crowd like an angry football coach. The ‘The Outsiders’ singer forever seems one wrong word away from raging, and his fans love him for it. Off the stage … well, it’s a different story.

Despite what you may read about Church attacking other artists and country styles, Taste of Country’s Billy Dukes argues the 38-year-old is actually one of the format’s kindest, most respectful stars. Up close, in the right setting, you’ll see an astonishing other side to the singer. Is he an outlaw? Decide for yourself after watching this episode of ‘Encore.’
