Eric Church Has A Priceless Reaction To Hearing One Of His Songs While On The Sideline At Virginia Tech

“That’s my song!”

Everybody knows Eric Church is a BIG UNC guy.

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, you see Church’s excited reaction to hearing “The Outsiders” blaring over the speakers.

You can’t quite tell what he’s saying, but Church is clearly pumped about it.

And I mean, aside from “Enter Sandman,” I can’t think of a song that makes me want to run through a brick wall more than “The Outsiders.”

Unfortunately for Chief this was probably the most exciting part of the game, since his Tar Heels went on to lose 17-10 to the Hokies.

I don’t know if UNC plays his music before their games, but if they don’t, maybe they should. Gotta think that this hearing this when you take the field will get you ready to play.
