Last year, Eric Church set out to put out an ambitious triple album Heart & Soul, and set out to do the same with his Gather Again Tour. The country music singer wanted to put together a tour that would give each date and venue a show that would be entirely unique. The Church Choir shows out, and he rewarded them with a different setlist at every show.
This tour was award-winning as well. It took home a Billboard Music Award for best country music tour. Above all else, he’s an entertainer. With the tour ending in New York City this last weekend, Church recapped it with a highlight of three of his songs from his triple-release.
It just so happens that it has been an entire year since Heart & Soul came out. So, the video he shared highlights three of the biggest fan favorites from the project. It starts out with Hell of a View and then goes into Doing Life with Me and finishes off with Heart on Fire. In the Mecca, Madison Square Garden, Church and McBryde joined up to put on one hell of a show and a finale to the tour.
With all of the time, effort, and planning that went into this tour and these shows, it is fitting that it ended in such a major way. The last-second change to McBryde was a welcome one, and fans seemed to have a The two have been friends and played together multiple times over the years. Church had a lot of trust in her to close out his passion project of a tour.
