Eric Church Makes "New York Times" Best Shows List

It's not too often you see Eric Church's name alongside hip-hop stars Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj and Drake or rockers Mumford & Sons or The Rolling Stones.

But Eric is the sole country artist on a list of the 30-plus best live shows seen in 2012—all around the world—by music critics at The New York Times.

Eric's show took place March 14 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York.

Critic Jon Pareles wrote:

"A mean show, as these things go. Mr. Church has clawed his way into the country mainstream with a series of post-outlaw anthems, and he delivered them with verve and tension, as if he might not be allowed to for much longer."
