ERIC CHURCH AT COUNTRY USA 2015 - PHOTO GALLERY BY MICHAEL MULLENIX
Closing out our coverage of Country USA in time for Rock USA is Eric Church, a performance and photo opportunity I have been looking forward to all year. Best known around these parts as the guy who sings that song That's Damn Rock N Roll with Lizzy Hale, Eric Church is one of the best performances I've seen all year. By far on this festival run he had the best stage presence and stage set up. Extra lights, fog machines, and amps all make the show feel bigger, and made Eric Church appear epic. What's surprising is even though naturally the aforementioned Thats Damn Rock N Roll was electrifying, he managed to make some of his softer songs like Springsteen, Wrecking Ball and Talladega into some of the most gripping and visceral moments of the entire show. Church is positively spellbinding and it is clear why he is so revered beyond the borders of the Country Genre. For the first time on this site, it is my honor to present Eric Church!
