Eric Church ranks among music’s best on a recent list compiled by Rolling Stone magazine. The article, “50 Greatest Live Acts Right Now,” is featured in the magazine’s latest issue. Besides, Eric Church, the only country-based act honored is Taylor Swift.
Artists chosen for the list were narrowed down by writers and industry insiders. All artists were required to be active within the last five years and could not have announced their retirement in order to qualify. Bruce Springsteen topped the list, followed by Prince and the Rolling Stones. Eric Church ranks at number forty, while Taylor Swift appears at number forty-nine.
Eric Church’s headlining tour “Blood, Sweat, and Beers,” played to sold-out venues across the country last year and included several overseas dates. Between working on a follow-up to his Grammy-nominated album, “Chief,” Eric Church is playing selected dates on Kenny Chesney’s stadium tour. Church is the lone country act playing at this year’s Lollapalooza music fest.
