Eric Church's Live Show One Of 2012's Best

Some artists make okay music but are great on stage.  Some make great music but are terrible on stage.  It sounds like Eric Church is one of the rare artists who can do great at both.  The New York Times rated Eric's live show in Manhattan in 2012 as one of the best of the year!  Here is more:

 

“A mean show, as these things go,” the august publication opined. “Mr. Church has clawed his way into the country mainstream with a series of post-outlaw anthems, and he delivered them with verve and tension, as if he might not be allowed to for much longer.”

That’s nothing new to Church, who’s been delivering incendiary live shows for years in venues ranging from clubs to huge coliseums. “I’ve done it so much — bars, clubs, all the way up to theaters and being opening acts, to here — arenas,” he told Taste of Country in September. “It’s almost like you’ve got your uniform on and it’s game time.”

Church is planning to take some time off in 2013 to be with his family after capping off an amazing 2012 by winning a CMA Award for Album of the Year.
