After high school and college in the mountains of North Carolina, Eric Church turned to Nashville with a blessing (and some financial support) from his father. It would be a long, slow grind for the future superstar. During his first five years with Capitol Nashville, Church never cracked the Top 10 and was all but banished from major tours after getting kicked off Rascal Flatts’ show for playing too long. Radio began paying attention in 2009 when ‘Love Your Love the Most’ was released. Church’s swelling grassroots fanbase began to multiply. The ‘Chief’ album was released in 2011, its success justifying all of his struggles — ‘Springsteen’ would become the biggest song of 2012.
Birthday: May 3, 1977
Top Songs: 'Springsteen,’ ‘Drink in My Hand’
Fun Fact: Church isn’t trying to intimidate with the dark Ray-Ban sunglasses. The stage lights dry out his eyes if he’s not wearing them.
The first-ever iHeartRadio Country Festival was a smashing success on Saturday (March 29) in Austin, Texas, featuring star-studded performances, a surprise collaboration, and even a little bit of rapping (and this time, it wasn't Nelly!).
Eric Church has been created a compelling (albeit, a little confusing) storyline around his new album 'The Outsiders.' The singer continues to tell the story in the video for 'A Man Who Was Gonna Die Young.'
Dierks Bentley and Eric Church are two of the hottest men in country music, in more ways than one. While their music is in high demand, it's their good looks and personalities that will help them win this contest. Taste of Country's March Man-Ness will decide country music's sexiest male artist.
The four remaining Outlaws in the Taste of Country March Man-Ness competition survived against tough competition in Round 1 of this contest to decide country's sexiest male. Each will need even more fan support if he hopes to get to the regional final. Voting begins right now!
