The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum will explore the life and career of Eric Church with the cameo exhibition, Eric Church: Inside the Outsider, which opens September 18, 2015, and runs through February 2016. The exhibition will examine the North Carolina native’s path to stardom, with stage wear, guitars, song manuscripts, photos and more from his personal collection.

“Eric Church is an independent-minded artist with an uncompromising attitude that is rare in contemporary country music,” said museum CEO Kyle Young. “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.”

Church has reaped the rewards of chart success with hits such as “Springsteen” and “Talladega,” platinum albums Chief and The Outsiders, and CMA and ACM awards, while maintaining an authenticity that resonates deeply with his audience. His country-rock hybrid incorporates influences ranging from Merle Haggard to Metallica, and reflects the determination of many of today’s top country artists to break down genre barriers. Behind his trademark aviator shades, Church believes that, “music is universal; it speaks to people’s souls on the deepest level. It’s all just music.”

Church will christen Nashville’s new outdoor Ascend Amphitheater on July 30 and 31, making a rare second stop in Music City this year to perform two sold-out acoustic solo sets. He set a venue record in January when 18,411 fans crammed into Bridgestone Arena to catch The Outsiders World Tour, which is nearing one million tickets sold, has set five venue attendance records, and was ranked #1 on Billboard’s Hot Tours recap in April.

    Saw Eric Church in concert with Miranda, have to say I’m a fan of Eric! Come to think of it he is very much Waylon Jennings like.
