ERIC CHURCH CELEBRATES THE OPENING OF HIS NEW EXHIBIT AT THE COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME.

Eric Church, together with select friends and family, celebrated the opening of his new exhibit, Eric Church: Country Heart, Restless Soul, on Wednesday night (July 13th), with an invite-only reception. 

The new exhibit delves at the North Carolina native's unconventional route to popularity, from his early years performing late-night jobs in clubs and penning songs in Nashville to his larger-than-life stage persona and career.

"I have such respect, immense respect for this place, for this room that we're in," Eric says of the Country Music Hall of Fame.

"For what we've accomplished here, not just in country music, but throughout music history. It is very unique and unprecedented. I'm honored to be here."

The collection includes stage costumes, tour memorabilia, handwritten lyrics to songs like "Smoke A Little Smoke" and "Monsters," guitars, awards, handwritten notes from George Strait and Bruce Springsteen, 

and a gold record plaque from Taylor Swift with a note thanking him for playing too long after being kicked off the Rascal Flatts tour in 2006.

"The best part for me is that both of my children grew up on the tour bus, starting at the age of two and three months." And while you're in the tornado, you forget everything that has happened.

And to be beside my boys today as we walked through and talked over little tidbits, but when they were one, two, or three, they don't remember that; that was my favorite part of the entire show — experiencing it again with them," he says.
