Eric Church Serenades ‘CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock’ Viewers With ‘Springsteen’
It seems as though Eric Church has started a new country music fashion trend, with many of the CMA Music Festival concert-goers wearing a pair of the singer’s signature aviator glasses during his set. Decked out in a pair of shades of his own, Church gave his legion of loyal fans a performance of ‘Springsteen’ during tonight’s ‘Country’s Night to Rock’ prime time special.
“If you’ve got a cell phone, take it out and light it up on this part right here,” Church instructed as he launched into the anthem’s final chorus. “I will remember you, LP Field.’
‘Springsteen’ reached No. 1 earlier this year, giving the singer his second consecutive chart-topper and propelling his already established career into superstar status. The tune recently snagged CMA Song and Single of the Year nominations, with the accompanying album, ‘Chief,’ honored with a nomination in the Album of the Year category.
Fans unable to catch a show on Church’s Blood, Sweat and Beers Tour can look forward to live recordings of all country hits with his upcoming live album, which is expected to be released in early 2013.
