On Sept. 8 it was announced in an issued press release that country music singer Eric Church will perform a concert that benefits the GRAMMY foundation on Oct. 8 in Madison, Wisc. at the Orpheum Theatre. There will be no opening act but Church will perform an entire set with his band.
In 1988 the GRAMMY foundation was created to help people understand and appreciate recorded music in the American culture. In 2013 Church was nominated for two Grammy Awards. His song "Springsteen" was up for both Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song.
Church is set to kick off his fall 2014 headlining tour on Sept. 11 at the CenturyLink Center. He will be touring in support of his fourth studio album, "The Outsiders" which was released earlier this year on Feb. 11 via EMI Nashville. That album went on to reach No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 Album chart.
Church currently has four CMA Award nominations pending. He's up for Male of the Year and the album "The Outsiders" is nominated for Album of the Year. The song "Give Me Back My Hometown" is nominated for both Song of the Year and Single of the Year.
