Eric Church is taking some time during CMA Music Fest to thank his fans in special ways and give back a little as well. Following performances on tomorrow night’s (June 10) CMT Awards and Marty Stuart’s 14th Annual Late Night Jam at The Ryman, Church heads back out on the road for dates in Alabama and Georgia. But he returns to Music City Sunday to hold his Church Choir party for lucky fan club members with have winning raffle tickets, before playing the final night of CMA Fest concerts at LP Field.
Church is also opening a pop-up store Wednesday through Friday called “The Outsider’s Joint” at 218 South 11th St. in East Nashville. Church’s custom Lucchese boot line will be available to the public for the first time. The footwear is customarily only available to VIP ticket holders on his tour dates, and visitors can also purchase rare and unique items personally chosen by Church, like a Jack Daniels Single Barrel bearing his name and a custom denim jacket.
Proceeds from items, besides the boots, will go to the non-profit Church and wife Katherine started, the Chief Cares Fund, which serves over 2.5 million people around the world. Donations have been used to aid underprivileged families throughout Tennessee and Church’s home state of North Carolina, to help an orphanage in Nepal, to provide aid to Haiti, and to benefit the Humane Society’s no-kill animal shelters.
