One last thing about Eric Church, and it’s actually a good illustration of just how thoughtful the guy is.
A lot of artists, when they play Sacramento, they will pay tribute by performing Johnny Cash’s classic, Folsom Prison Blues. Which is great. Awesome song!
But, Eric Church is nothing if not a little different than most other artists. So it wasn’t really a surprise at his Golden 1 Center show when he told the crowd that on the way to Sacramento, he was trying to think of a song he could play just for us, something that we could relate to. Here it comes, we thought…Folsom Prison Blues.
But, nope. Explaining that he and his band had never actually performed this particular song before, Church took a deep breath and broke into…? Watch the video above to find out (it’s not the whole song, but enough to give you an idea)
