Country superstar Eric Church to launch his own exclusive SiriusXM channel
Country music superstar Eric Church will launch his own SiriusXM music channel, Eric Church Outsiders Radio, on Friday, November 4th, on the SXM App.
Church announced his new channel in an exclusive interview with Billboard today, October 26th.
“It’ll be fun to show how an 80-year-old blues song inspires a jazz artist, that inspires a rockabilly guitar player, who inspires a country artist,” Church told the publication.
What You’ll Hear
Eric Church Outsiders Radio will showcase music from Church’s career, including his vast catalogue of nearly two decades that has earned him seven ACM Awards, four CMA Awards (including 2020 Entertainer of the Year) and 10 GRAMMY nominations. Curated by Church himself, the channel will be a journey through his musical experiences featuring collaborations and recordings with friends along with behind-the-scenes stories. Listeners will also hear songs that inspire Church as a fan of music, from rock to country and beyond, by artists including George Strait, Bob Seger, Ashley McBryde, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard, Aretha Franklin, Kenny Chesney, Bruce Springsteen, Brandi Carlile and more.
“We’re trying to be thoughtful about how we play the music and why the music matters,” shares Church on the curation of his new channel. “This is about something that you actually go, oh, that’s cool. That, I haven’t heard that. So, chasing that pathway is what gives me excitement about what we’re trying to do here with Outsiders Radio.”
