Eric Church WCOL Country Jam


This year’s WCOL Country Jam headliner is none other than country megastar Eric Church! Born and raised in North Carolina, Church began playing music at the age of 13 and performing at local bars and clubs around his hometown. After graduating from Appalachian State University with a bachelor’s degree in business, Church and his then fiance separated, which sent Church to Nashville to pursue his career in country music.

After being signed on to Capital Records in 2006, Church released his first album, Sinners like Me, which included his debut single and Top 20 hit, “How ‘Bout’ You”. In 2009, Church followed up his successful first album with his second, Carolina. After the release, Church broke into the Top 10 charts with songs, “Love Your Love the Most” and “Hell on a Heart”. With no hesitation, Church continued to climb the charts with new releases such as “Smoke a Little Smoke” in 2010 and ultimately scored his first number one hit with song, “Drink In My Hand”. Church has released 5 albums since his debut in 2006 with his latest titled, The Outsiders, in 2014. With multiple hits and awards including Album of The Year, Church has grown his fan base, dubbed the Church Choir, and sold out arenas all over the nation.
