Eric Church has put in a lot of hard work to get where he is now. And where he is now is only the most nominated artist in the upcoming 46th CMA Awards.

The man playing our Cajundome on October 18 received nods for Male Vocalist, Album of the Year, Single of the Year, Song of the Year and Music Video.

His album Chief has produced two #1 hits, "Drink In My Hand" and "Springsteen". The latter is nominated in the Single and Song of the Year along with Music Video categories. Church co-wrote the song with band member Jeff Hyde and Ryan Tyndell.

All this and the fact that the boy puts on one of the most high-energy shows in country music, should be reason enough to make you want to make your way in the Cajundome to see his Blood, Sweat and Beers Tour. Justin Moore and Kip Moore will be opening the show and we've got lots of free tickets for you!
