Eric Church Comes to Sleep Train Arena

Eric Church played at the Sleep Train Arena on Saturday, Nov. 10, with special guests Justin Moore and Kip Moore.

While I am personally not a fan of country music, I couldn’t help but be a little charmed by the fans who are. Dressed in cowboy boots and hats, it was nice to have the door held open for me and to hear “Excuse me, ma’am,” as I passed by. Church is a very popular country musician, especially with the ladies, so I saw a lot of jumping up and down as crowd members made their way to their seats.

Justin Moore started the night off, playing crowd favorites like “Til My Last Day” and “Small Town USA,” which got the audience amped up. Kip Moore followed. One of his more entertaining songs, “Beer Money,” got the most amusing crowd participation, since beer seemed to be the drink of choice for the night.

Church used fog and lights to create a unique stage experience. The backdrop was a black-and-white frame from his CD “Chief,” which was well-recognized by all his fans. The crowd accompanied him in many of his songs, making this a boisterous event.

Church played popular songs like “Creepin’,” which had many people dancing either in their seats or among the general audience. I have to admit my foot may have also been tapping. There is something contagious about a group that is truly enjoying themselves.

The song that drove the crowd wild, though, was “Drink in My Hand.” The arena almost came to life as everyone lifted the drink they were drinking toward the stage. There was a unity in the music and words that was not only fun to see, but also special.

Church loves his music and it’s obvious from his fans that they love him, too.
