Voice problems cause Church concert cancelation

Monday, April 30, 2012 – Eric Church canceled a show on Sunday in Bloomington, Ind. because he lost his voice.

Church is in the midst of The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour with Brantley Gilbert and Blueberry Smoke.

Church said on his web site, "I'm so disappointed. I apologize to everybody for having to cancel tonight's show. I've played shows with injuries before but unfortunately cannot overcome having no voice. I hate that this came so late in the day but I've tried everything I know of to get it back and wanted to give it as much time as I could to try and make the show happen. To the fans that were planning on attending, I owe you one."

The tour resumes May 3 in Springfield, Mo.

He makes that crystal clear on the cover where he stands flanked by his backing quintet, looking tough, menacing, ready for a rumble with arms hanging down, hiding behind sunglasses. 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. »»»
