Country music fans are the most passionate of any genre of music, but some artists have an even closer relationship with their fans than usual. Who has the most passionate fans in country music this year?
Powerful words flashed across Eric Church’s face as he began his performance at the 2016 CMA Awards of his poignant tune “Kill a Word,” interrupting silence with his declaration against all things dark and hateful.
Eric Church is a giver in more ways than one. In addition to the gift of music, the country star has also given back to his home state of North Carolina, and regions across the world, through Chief Cares, a nonprofit founded by him and his wife Katherine.
While Eric Church fans anxiously await his upcoming 2017 Holdin’ My Own Tour, the singer is set to release a new EP via Walmart on Nov. 4 to commemorate the one-year anniversary of his surprise album release of Mr. Misunderstood.
