The New York Times, a highly-coveted American daily newspaper, compiled a list of the best live events of 2012, according to its internal pop and jazz critics. In 2012, Grammy nominated artist, Eric Church, solidified country music’s place on The New York Times’ list as the only country act to be recognized. The critics described Eric’s Hammerstein Ballroom performance on March 14th as “[a] mean show, as these things go. Mr. Church has clawed his way into the country mainstream with a series of post-outlaw anthems, and he delivered them with verve and tension, as if he might not be allowed to for much longer.”
Congratulations to Eric Church on this exciting honor and for ensuring that country music gets a nod from one of the most prestigious publications in the world!
