Eric Church

Eric Church is a righteous redneck who wears his country credibility on the tattooed arm where his sleeve would otherwise be, because he's wearing a muscle tee. He's got a cash cow in the can with "Drink In My Hand," as well as a thoughtful ode to an icon in "Springsteen." He and his band have copped to drinking a prodigious amount of Jack Daniels on the road, yet Church is also a family man. If he worked out, tanned and waxed himself, he could look like Tim McGraw. But Church, who wears his sunglasses at night, is too cool for that shit, and never hesitates to call out peers—Rascal Flatts, for instance—whom he perceives as pissing in the purity pot. He's also notorious for putting on an especially kick-ass live show. With Justin Moore, Kip Moore. MIKE SEELY
