Apart from the stadium stops with Kenn, the ACM’s Album of the Year winner has also booked a performance at popular music festival Lollapalooza later this summer.
Stops like Lollapalooza and especially a recent festival with heavy metal band Metallica keeps Eric on his toes.
“I was scared to death,” he tells Country Aircheck of performing the Orion Festival with Metallica in 2012. “We were the only country act. But…it was one of the best crowds we’ve had. And it was because they weren’t looking at us as a country artist. They were looking at us as an artist. And I think that’s the coolest thing that’s happening with all these festivals.”
Eric makes his second appearance in four years at Lollapalooza on Aug. 3 in Chicago.
Joining him on the bill… The Killers, The Cure, The Lumineers and Mumford & Sons.
