Eric Church’s life and career are at the center of a new exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum set to debut next month. Eric Church: Country Heart, Restless Soul, presented by Gibson, will open in 2023 on July 13 and run through 2024 when it closes on June 9.
A press release states that the exhibit “will chronicle Church’s unique path to stardom, from his early years playing late-night gigs in bars and writing songs in Nashville to his current prominence as one of country music’s most authentic voices and revered rule-breakers.” On July 15, two days after the exhibit opens, the Hall of Fame and Museum will mark its launch with the public program Writers’ Round: The Songs of Eric Church. The event will feature artists including Luke Laird and Jeremy Spillman playing music they have written with the star, and sharing stories behind them, from 2:30 pm in the museum’s Ford Theater. Details of how to reserve tickets for the program, and more information about the exhibit, are available at the museum’s website.
Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum CEO Kyle Young says in a press statement: “Eric Church has done it his way completely. His steadfast artistic vision and authenticity resonate deeply with audiences, and he continues to serve as an important collaborator and renegade role model for generations of country music artists.”
