Eric Church Breaks Nissan Stadium Attendance Record, Passes Taylor Swift

56,521.

That’s a lot of people.

That’s how many people watched Eric Church rock Nashville’s Nissan Stadium Saturday night, passing Taylor Swift’s record from 2018 during her Reputation Tour. Taylor had drawn 56,112.

As we’ve been saying, this is your Entertainer of the Year – no fucking question.

“I came here 15 years ago and I had dreams,” Church told his loyal Church Choir about Nashville, “but I’m not sure I could dream this big. Tonight is a special night for me and you know this if you’ve been to any of our shows on the Double Down Tour… I’m gonna give you everything I’ve got all night long, and tonight is going to be a revival. I promise you.”

What a tour. What an artist. Now go treat that hangover, Nashville.
