Eric Church: Inside The Outsider Exhibit Opens September 18

Explore the life of country music’s outlaw, Eric Church, with the new cameo exhibition at the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum. The exhibition will give fans a look inside the North Carolina native’s path to stardom, and include cherished artifacts from his personal collection.

This cameo exhibit will explore the life and career of Eric Church featuring 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 will be the first to perform Nashville’s new outdoor Ascend Amphitheater on July 30th and 31st, making a rare second stop in Music City this year to perform two sold-out acoustic solo sets. He set a venue record back in January when 18,411 fans packed into the Bridgestone Arena to catch The Outsiders World Tour, which has almost sold up to one million tickets, has set five venue attendance records, and was ranked #1 on Billboard’s Hot Tours recap in April.

Church has reaped a harvest of rewards on the chart of 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.”
