Eric Church to Perform at Lollapalooza
Eric Church traditionally rocks a less traditional baseball cap and aviators look, shying away from the typical country music attire of cowboy hat and boots — and that may be just as well. He’s set to perform at Lollapalooza in 2013, and is the only country act that will grace the stage of the annual music festival.
The ‘Like Jesus Does’ hitmaker will be performing at Lollapalooza for the second time in four years, and he’s part of only a handful of country music acts that have ever played in the rock festival’s 20-plus years, according to Country Weekly. Waylon Jennings and Steve Earle played it in 1996, while acoustic trio Nickel Creek performed in 2006.
Church is included in a stellar lineup which boasts top music acts such as the Killers and Mumford & Sons. This isn’t the first time he’s been the sole country artist at a non-country music festival, and judging from the national attention on his live shows, this could be a re-occuring trend.
The country rocker, who is set to release his first live album on April 9, will have many chances to show off his crowd-pleasing performances before the big stage of Lollapalooza as he’ll be touring with Kenny Chesney on the 2013 No Shoes Nation Tour.
