Between the new albums on the way, the Super Bowl performance, and just the overall badass that Eric Church is… I find myself listening quite a bit of Chief these days. Plus, I just bought a record player and got that Sinners Like Me album spinning on the regular.
That being said, I was digging into the 61 Days In Church live albums, and there are some damn great covers in there. The song choice, the actual performances, the variety… and with the live music still gone for the foreseeable future, live albums are pretty much all we can ask for these days.
So without further ado, here’s some of my favorite covers from 61 Days In Church.
