Eric Church to Perform Benefit Concert for the Grammy Foundation
Eric Church may be country music's modern outlaw, but that doesn't mean he will say no to a great cause. The 'Cold One' singer will perform a benefit concert in October for the Grammy Foundation.
Church will host 'An Evening with Eric Church' at the Orpheum Theater in Madison, Wisc. on Oct. 8, with all ticket sales going in support of the Grammy Foundation, which aims to "cultivate the understanding, appreciation and advancement of the contribution of recorded music to American culture." To this end, the Foundation creates programs that engage the current music industry, encourage the next generation of music professionals and raise awareness for issues tied to music like the value of music and arts education in schools.
The intimate concert will see Church performing with his full band, but without an opening act, leaving plenty of space and time for the singer to play lots of songs from his new studio album, 'The Outsiders,' and maybe even a few hits from his other three records, as well. It's sure to be a once-in-a-lifetime event that fans won't want to miss.
The Grammy Foundation benefit concert is just one of a few acts of good will that Church has committed to recently. On Aug. 21, the singer and his wife, Katherine, announced the launch of their new charity, Chief Cares, which will impact the lives of people in the United States and around the world, including the U.S. Humane Society, children in Nepal and life-saving aid in Haiti.
Tickets for 'An Evening with Eric Church' go on sale Friday, Sept. 12 at 11AM ET. General admission tickets are $67 and a limited number of VIP tickets will sell for $87. Visit the Foundation's official website for more details.
