Recently ranked No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard Hot Tours chart for his successful “The Outsiders World Tour” which continues through this summer, Church will give a rare solo concert performance with just his guitar, giving fans a unique experience from when he set a new venue attendance record of 18,441 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena earlier this year in January. Tickets will go on sale at Ticketmaster next Thursday, Apr. 30 at 10:00 AM (CT).
“The newest addition to Music City’s live music scene will get off to a great start with a concert from Eric Church, who represents what’s great about Music City,” Mayor Dean said. “His songs can’t be confined to just one genre; he draws from country, rock and other types of music that help make the scene here in Nashville so vibrant and eclectic.”

ESPN Music/VH-1/NHL Vet Deanna Kay Anchors The Summer’s Biggest Shows!
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 17, 2015) - Somewhere on the Road: Kenny Chesney has always believed in getting his fans as close as possible. He started the Sand Bar at his shows to let the hardcore fans come down front and dance before it was a country music standard. He launched No Shoes Radio to let fans take the vibe of his music and shows with them anytime, anywhere via smart phone app or online (noshoesradio.com.)
Now he launches No Shoes TV, a quick-hit round-up of the best moments at this year’s The Big Revival Tour’s major stadiums shows. Correspondent Deanna Kay – who kicks the series off at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena -- will catch up with the No Shoes Nation in the parking lot, on the road, in the stands and anywhere she thinks there’s a moment to capture.
“I’ve always said there is so much more to these shows and this tour than what happens onstage,” says Chesney. “The No Shoes Nation are the most passionate music lovers I’ve ever seen. When you get out amongst them, you can’t help but get swept up. And I wanted to give the people who can’t be there a chance to get the feel for the whole day... because some of what happens, you’ll never get a regular TV network to make part of a concert special.”
