Country singer Eric Church is bringing The Outsiders World Tour to the Gwinnett Arena next Thursday.
Church has built a reputation as a restless, creative force while following an unconventional path to country stardom. The North Carolina native gained popularity with his album “Carolina,” released in 2009. Church’s album “Chief” carried him to Platinum sales status, winning such honors as CMA and ACM Album of the Year awards.
His fourth album, “The Outsiders,” was released last February, delivering his most revealing, personally charged statement. Beyond its diverse approach, the albums recurring lyrical motifs inspired the album’s title and holds considerable personal resonance for Church.
“I’ve always felt like an outsider, and I still feel that way,” Church said in a press release. “That feeling is something that you never lose, no matter how much acceptance you get.”
Eric Church’s The Outsiders World Tour with special guests Dwight Yoakam and Halestorm will be Thursday, Dec. 11, at 7 p.m. at the Arena at Gwinnett Center, 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway in Duluth. Tickets range from $29.50 to $69.50 and are available at www.gwinettcenter.com, the Arena at Gwinnett Center box office or by calling 888-9-AXS-TIX. For more information, visit www.gwinnettcenter.com.
