Eric Church On Hall Of Fame Exhibit
Eric Church and a host of invitation-only music industry members were on hand on Thursday, September 17th for the private opening of his new Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum exhibit called Inside the Outsider. The singer addressed the crowd, which also included family, friends, band, and crew.
“I just walked through an exhibit. They had to kind of tear me away cause I was interested in the Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard part (laughter), but I walked through an exhibit that had my name all over it, and here’s what I learned — it has nothing to do with me. It doesn’t matter how great your songs are, how great a singer and player you are . . . I know this now, that it’s about the people, and they’re in this room. It’s about everybody from songwriters, it’s about management, it’s about the band and crew that give it to ‘em every night. It’s about my family, it’s about the people at our house. It’s not about me, because it’s not possible for one person to make that happen, and I can’t say how proud I am, and I’m blown away by where we are.”
The exhibit, which runs through February 21st, explores the life and career of the North Carolina native with items such as stage wear, guitars, awards, photos, awards and more from his personal collection.
Eric was a special guest on ESPN’s College GameDay on Saturday, September 19th.
