ABOUT ERIC CHURCH 

Church’s fifth studio album, Mr. Misunderstood was recently named Album of the Year at the 50th annual CMA Awards, Nov. 2.  After accepting the award Church said, “I always believed that, if you put everything into making the best record you can make, regardless of how you release it, and regardless of the press and the hype, that the music wins.” Mr. Misunderstood was released by surprise during the 2015 CMA Awards after sending more than 80,000 copies solely to his fan club, The Church Choir, and has since proven to be a critically-acclaimed album.


Church’s 2014-2015’s The Outsiders World Tour topped Billboard's Hot Tours consistently after Church set new attendance records in five markets including Chicago's Allstate Arena on March 20 with 18,626 present. Church also shattered Nashville's Bridgestone Arena attendance on January 10 with an unprecedented 18,411 fans assembled, surpassing The Blue Collar Comedy Tour’s record set on February 2006. On April 7, 2015 he also broke the attendance record at Grand Forks, N.D.’s Ralph Engelstad Arena, which was previously set by Sir Elton John's 2012 show. The Outsiders World Tour saw Church performing to more than 800,000 fans in more than 65 cities with nearly 20 stops from September 2014 through September of ‘15 and was named one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s Must-See Tours.
