Eric Church to launch tour in support of "Carolina"

Tuesday, January 13, 2009 – Eric Church announced Tuesday he will launch a tour in support of his sophomore release, "Carolina," dropping March 24 on Capitol Nashville.

Jay Joyce-who also produced Church's debut-produced Carolina and Church wrote or co-wrote each of the album's 13 tracks. Church's debut, "Sinners Like Me," yielded 3t op 20 singles.

Church says of Carolina, "Sinners Like Me changed my life. But you can't make the same record again. I wanted Carolina to go to some different places. The first album was more aggressive and moody. This one is more diverse, more musical and a little brighter. I hope people can at least hear that we're still taking chances."

CD reviews for Eric Church

CD review - Desperate Man While Eric Church has set the bar high with his previous studio albums, "Desperate Man" is right up there with his best and may just be his most accomplished effort to date.

He also knows how to have a little fun, especially with "Hanging Around," a soulful, funky tune mixing together ...
CD review - Mr. Misunderstood When listeners were introduced to Eric Church on his debut, they heard an artist who could balance strong song writing with a bit of a rebellious edge to the music. The surprise release of his latest continues that tradition, being quietly released to his fan club before even being officially announced. The music, written and recorded over a short period of time with an unheard of fast turnaround, has a raw edge that bridges the gap between radio friendly country music with the more rugged sound ...

These guys are ready to roll. As in rock and roll, which Church et al cook up with the lead-off title track, an out-and-out rocker with Church laying down his outside the lines credentials. ...
