Eric Church Previews Austin City Limits Special
"Eric and his band know how to rock harder than many rock 'n roll bands and his music and the words behind it have a way of reaching fans way beyond the usual borders of country music," said ACL executive producer Terry Lickona in a press release. "He's a perfect fit for ACL."
While fans may have to wait until the weekend to see the entire concert, PBS is offering up a preview of his performance of "Springsteen." The GRAMMY-nominated song has fans in the crowd singing along word for word. Halfway through the song, Church stopped to address the crowd.
"There's a line in this song about when a melody and a memory connect with each other," he said. "That to me in an essence is what music is about. No matter how old you get, no matter where you are, when you hear that song, you're right back where you were the first time you heard that song. I can tell you this, no matter where I go in life from right here, I'm always gonna remember Austin City Limits tonight. For that, I thank you. Now, I wanna hear you!"
