On gameday you can usually find him on the Tar Heels sideline wearing his baby blue. And he’s also good friends with current UNC head football coach Mack Brown, a friendship that came about in part thanks to Matthew McConaughey and Jack Ingram.
So of course he was in Blacksburg this past weekend when #10 ranked UNC took on Virginia Tech to kick off the 2021 season.
Virginia Tech has one of the most electric (and most well-known) entrances in college football.
I’ve been to games at Lane Stadium before and let me tell you, there’s not much that will get you pumped up more than when “Enter Sandman” starts blaring and the entire stadium starts going crazy and singing along. It’s insane.

But what Eric Church didn’t know is that “Enter Sandman” isn’t the only song Virginia Tech uses during their pregame: Along with Johnny Cash’s “God’s Gonna Cut You Down,” the team also uses one of Church’s song to fire up the stadium too.
In a video posted to Twitter by user @makin_bAKENS, you see Church’s excited reaction to hearing “The Outsiders” blaring over the speakers.
Y’all know Eric Church was at the VT vs UNC game? I did.
