ERIC CHURCH SET TO HEADLINE JAGERMEISTER COUNTRY TOUR




ERIC CHURCH SET TO HEADLINE JAGERMEISTER COUNTRY TOUR


TOUR TO SUPPORT CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED SOPHOMORE RELEASE CAROLINA


BEGINS FEBRUARY 9

CURRENT SINGLE “HELL ON THE HEART” IS TOP 30
AND CLIMBING ON COUNTRY RADIO CHARTS

“He can drop a punch line with the deftness of Brad Paisley (“Before She Does”), inspire a bit of hell-raising a la Waylon and Willie at their outlaw finest (“Smoke a Little Smoke”) and fan the fires of romance as well as any of the heartthrobs dominating the country charts (“Love Your Love the Most”).”—Los Angeles Times



Critically acclaimed country singer Eric Church will embark on a nationwide headlining tour in early 2010, beginning February 9 at the Ram’s Head in Baltimore, MD. The “Jagermeister Country Tour featuring Eric Church” follows the recent “Young & Wild Tour,” which included 50 sold out shows and performances on NBC’s “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” CBS’s “Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” and ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Church’s raucous live shows have earned him a dedicated fan base, which he lovingly dubbed “the Church Choir” and, despite breaking his foot during a recent performance, Church has continued to play to enthusiastic audiences across the country. Country artist Josh Thompson will provide direct support for the tour. Please see below for complete dates.

The “Jagermeister Country Tour featuring Eric Church” will support Church’s widely praised sophomore effort Carolina. The album debuted at #17 on Billboard’s Top 200 and #4 on the country charts and yielded the singles “Love Your Love the Most,” which reached the Top 10 on the Billboard and Mediabase country radio charts, and “Hell on the Heart,” which is currently in the Top 30 and climbing on both charts. Rolling Stone praised the album’s “surging guitars bolstering good-ol’-boy narratives,” and The New York Times declared, “His music puts rock muscle behind honky-tonk and turns ballads into intimate close-ups.”

Carolina follows the breakthrough success of Church’s critically acclaimed first effort Sinners Like Me, which claimed three Top 20 singles and a #1 video. The album earned Church widespread praise from Associated Press, Rolling Stone, People Magazine and The New York Times.
