Eric Church plays to sold-out crowd

Rising country music star Eric Church played to a sold-out crowd on Thursday night at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre.

Church, whose concert sold out within two weeks of tickets going on sale in October, presented his Blood, Sweat and Beers Tour with special guest Colt Ford.

The Abbotsford stop is part of a 90-date tour through Canada and the U.S.  Recently revealed as the most most-nominated country artist by the 2012 CMA Awards, Church has become a household name in country music since the release of his Platinum (U.S.) and Gold (Canada) certified album, Chief.

The album has included two Canadian No. 1 singles to date, with Springsteen and Drink in My Hand.  Church performed Springsteen on the Canadian Country Music Awards show (CCMAs) this year.
