Eric Church has been a mainstay of the live country music scene for several years now, and it seems like he just keeps getting bigger and bigger. On Saturday night (January 10) he brought his Outsiders World Tour to Nashville's Bridgestone Arena with a 28-song, two-hour-plus set, delivered to a record-breaking 18,411 fans. It bests a record set nine years ago in 2006 by the comics of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour. For a place known as Music City, it seems only fitting that a musician (who crosses the boundaries of genre, no less) would set the arena's highest attendance.
But it wasn't just ordinary folk who were there. Turns out he's a draw for his fellow artists as well, as Cole Swindell and Sam Hunt were at the show, posting a picture on social media as proof. Looks like everyone has love and respect for The Chief.
