Last night, my sister and I saw country music artist Eric Church perform at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C., as part of a stop on his “The Outsiders World Tour.” It was his first time performing at the Verizon Center. And unsurprisingly, the show was sold out.
My sister got us these concert tickets as an early birthday present. (My birthday is next Monday; I’ll be turning 24.) Hands down, it was the best birthday present I’ve received in recent memory. (Thank you and love you, sisute!)
Below are some pictures I took at the concert:
Drive-By Truckers opened for Eric Church. It was my first time hearing their music and I LOVED it!
Eric Church. Swoon.
Eric Church is a badass. He really connects with his fans and loves what he does.

The concert was sold out, as evidenced by this massive crowd.
A few months ago, The Bobby Bones Show talked about a devil making an appearance at the Eric Church concert while “Devil, Devil” was playing. Here it is. Terrifying, isn’t it?
For $35 seats, we had this optimal view. Not too shabby!
Another awesome shot of Eric Church.

Isn’t he dreamy?
I’ve been to my share of concert music concerts featuring Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley, Florida-Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Lee Brice, among many people. While I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the aforementioned artists perform, I was absolutely blown away by how talented and dedicated Eric Church is to his craft. He has more of a rock ‘n roll vibe to his music, which I greatly appreciate and enjoy. (Who doesn’t like rock ‘n roll? It’s as American as they come.) He performed hits like “Talladega”, “Smoke a Little Smoke”, “Homeboy”, “Devil, Devil”, “Guys Like Me”, “That’s Damn Rock ‘N Roll”, “Springsteen”, and many other tracks from his various albums. His music is refreshing in the day and age of bro-country-though I do enjoy some FLAGA Line and Thomas Rhett.
If you also attended the concert, I hope you enjoyed it too! It was refreshing to see people decked out in camo here in D.C. (It’s a wonderful break from the usual stiffs and suits you see here in the nation’s capital.)
