Eric Church has been selling out venues all across the country on his Holdin’ My Own tour, on which he is the sole performer for nearly four hours per show. While Eric is certainly the main draw, he tells us that his presence is only part of the concert experience. [“There are those nights, I mean, when I really do rely on the fans ‘cause there are those nights when you walk out for that first song and you see a setlist that’s got 38 or 39 on ‘em, I mean, you’re in for a night. You kind of get into the show and you start feeling the crowd and you start playing off of them, and then it just starts to kind of take over and you really, it becomes its own living, breathing thing. I don’t know that I’ve ever experienced that before, you know, where the show kind of becomes something that it’s alive. I’m just a part of it, just like they are. I’m not really directing it. I’m not really steering it. It’s just doing its thing, and it’s been something. That’s the best way for me to say it – it’s been something. I’m fortunate that we’re able, in our career, able to have that, because it’s not something I would’ve ever even dreamed of.”] SOUNDCUE (:44 OC: . . . even dreamed of.)
The Holdin' My Own tour, which kicked off in January, rolls into Buffalo, New York on Thursday (April 20th), followed by dates in Pittsburgh (Friday, April 21st)) and Cincinnati (Saturday, April 22nd).
Eric just released his new single, “Round Here Buzz,” from his Mr. Misunderstood album.
