Eric Church Brings Out Surprise Female Vocalist For ACMs Performance

Hours before the 57th Annual ACM Awards, Eric Church gave a look at his rehearsal for the show, and it made us SO excited!

We didn’t know what to expect, other than knowing that it would be great! The Chief took the stage at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas and performed a medley of close to 20 of his biggest hits!

The songs he performed included:

“How ‘Bout You”
“Guys Like Me”
“Love Your Love the Most”
“Smoke a Little Smoke”
“Drink in My Hand”
“The Outsiders”
“Give Me Back My Hometown”
“Mr. Misunderstood”
“Round Here Buzz”
“Record Year”
“Desperate Man”
“Some Of It”
“Hell Of A View”

He finished his incredible medley with “Heart On Fire,” which is from his latest albums Heart & Soul. The song usually is sung by Church and his backup singer Joanna Cotten, but someone else joined him…Ashley McBryde!

When she came out, fans went nuts…and let’s be honest. We did too! Her powerhouse vocals were definitely put to good use on “Heart On Fire.”
