Listen to Eric Church on iHeartRadio

Eric Church is the only country artist that made The New York Times’ list of the Best Concerts of 2012. Eric’s March 14th gig at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom is mentioned along with 2012 performances by Jay-Z, the Rolling Stones, Fiona Apple and Mary J. Blige.

Eric has built a solid fan base on the road, saying “We had a lot of years that we couldn’t really get anybody to pay attention to what we’re doing. So, it’s a little strange to have everybody watching and paying attention. But you know it’s what we worked for to get here. Now, I said many times, this is not by any means the mountaintop for me. I have a long, a lot of things I want to do and a lot more places I want to go. It’s just a stepping stone.”

Eric's first live album is due in early 2013.
