Eric Church tearfully sings for fan who died in Las Vegas shooting
DirecTV and AT&T U-verse will air an Eric Church concert and tour documentary tonight.
The two specials air on the AT&T Audience Network, which is available on AT&T U-verse channel 1114 and DirecTV channel 239, starting at 8 p.m.
First up is “Holding My Own,” a one-hour documentary that goes behind the scenes of the North Carolina native’s “Holdin’ My Own” Tour. “Eric Church: On the Rocks,” a live concert recorded at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado, airs at 9 p.m.
Both shows should also be available later On Demand.
Last week, Church broke down in tears onstage at the Grand Ole Opry as he talked about the deadly mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest festival in Las Vegas.
He had played the music festival two nights before the shooting. Church said he was moved to write a song in honor of two fans from Tennessee, Heather and Sonny Melton. Sonny Melton died while shielding his wife, Heather, from gunfire at the festival.
Church is a native of Granite Falls, a town in Caldwell County, and is an alumnus of Appalachian State University.
