Eric Church Eric Church will take a detour from his Young and Wild(er) Tour next month to return to his home state for a special concert. He'll perform before the NASCAR Banking 500 race on Oct. 17 at Lowe's Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C.

"Having grown up in North Carolina, being a NASCAR fan is a given," Eric says. "I've been to this very race many times with my dad. To be able to go back and play is a very special homecoming for me. I know a lot of my fans love NASCAR and a lot of NASCAR fans love country music. I guess the only question to be answered is, who is louder? The guys and their cars or me and the band? I can't wait to find out!"

Eric reached the Top 10 on the country singles charts this week with his latest hit, 'Love Your Love the Most.'
