Eric Continues 'Young and Wild(er) Tour' Despite Broken Foot
Capitol Records Nashville recording artist Eric Church fractured his foot during a show on his “Young & Wild(er) Tour” at the Syracuse State Fair on September 4. No shows have or will be cancelled as a result of Church’s injury as he continues to bring his high-energy performance to fans each night. Church is on tour supporting his sophomore release, Carolina, which features the Top 15 and climbing single, “Love Your Love The Most.”
“As my fans know, I get pretty excited on stage and stomp my feet,” explains Eric Church. “The combination of the stomping and the fact that our crowds are crazier than ever led to me breaking my foot. I refuse to miss a show over this, so for the time being, I'll be doing the rest of the shows from a stool. I'm still gonna bring it, and I expect our fans to do the same.”
The tour which started on September 3 includes performances along the East Coast and Midwest and is a continuation of the critically acclaimed “Young & Wild Tour” last spring that included 20 sold out shows and record breaking attendance at the Dallas Bull in Tampa, FL.
Carolina debuted at #4 on the Billboard Country Album Chart and #17 on Billboard’s Top 200. The album’s first single, “Love Your Love The Most,” is Top 15 and climbing on both the Billboard and Mediabase country charts. The album had received acclaim from Rolling Stone, which praised the “surging guitars bolstering good-ol’-boy narratives,” and the New York Times, which declared, “His music puts rock muscle behind honky-tonk and turns ballads into intimate close-ups.”
