Eric Church Is Getting His Own Country Music Hall of Fame Exhibit
Eric Church is the newest country music star to have an exhibit honoring his life and career at the Country Music Hall of Fame.
The North Carolina native's exhibit, Eric Church: Inside the Outsider, will open on Sept. 18 and run through February of 2016.
“Eric Church is an independent-minded artist with an uncompromising attitude that is rare in contemporary country music,” museum CEO Kyle Young says in a statement. “His insistence on doing things his way recalls Waylon Jennings and Hank Williams Jr. We are thrilled to share his story in our latest cameo exhibition.”
The exhibit, which will include Church's stage outfits, guitars, song manuscripts, photos and more, will show the country star's rise to fame, from his debut Sinners Like Me album in 2006 to his current headlining The Outsiders World Tour. Last year, Church set a new attendance record at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville during his tour stop at that venue.
Church joins a select list of elite artists who have recently been the subject of exhibits at the Country Music Hall of Fame, including Luke Bryan, Trisha Yearwood, Alan Jackson, Reba McEntire and Miranda Lambert. More information about Eric Church: Inside the Outsider can be found on the Country Music Hall of Fame website.
The "Like a Wrecking Ball" singer is scheduled to play two sold-out acoustic shows in Music City, at the new Ascend Amphitheater, on July 30 and 31. From July 30 through Aug. 1, to coincide with the concerts, Church will host his own pop-up shop in East Nashville. Items for sale will include These Boots by Lucchese, Church’s custom boot line, as well as a limited number of special-edition posters commemorating the first Ascend Amphitheater show and Church’s regular line of tour merchandise.
