The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum celebrated the opening of its newest exhibition, Eric Church: Country Heart, Restless Soul, presented by Gibson. The exhibit chronicles Church’s unique path to stardom, from his early years playing late-night gigs in bars and writing songs in Nashville to his prominence as one of country music’s most authentic voices and revered rule-breakers. Included with museum admission, the exhibit is now open through June 2024.

Additionally, Church has been invited to serve as the museum’s 2023 artist-in-residence. The annual series spotlights an artist with an exemplary body of work and asks the featured artist to create one-of-a-kind performances over multiple evenings. Church will produce and perform two shows in the museum’s CMA Theater on Aug. 29 and 30. Proceeds from the sold-out shows will benefit the nonprofit museum’s educational mission.

Cultivating a sound and approach uniquely his own, Church has held tight to his artistic identity throughout his more than two decades in Nashville, earning a devoted audience and amassing an impressive list of accolades, including 10 Billboard #1 country radio hits and multiple gold, platinum and multi-platinum-certified albums. With songwriting always at the center of his career, Church has written or co-written almost all of the songs he has recorded and released. A 10-time Grammy nominee and CMA Entertainer of the Year award-winner, Church continues to fill sold-out venues with his raucous live show, as well as challenge his own musical approach with every new level of success he achieves.
