Eric Church, 39, gave the most epic performance of “Kill A Word” at this year’s Country Music Association Awards on Nov. 2, showing us all that the sunglasses loving-stud knows what country music is all about. We could not have been more excited to hear him belt out some of our fave lyrics and give us something to rock to at home! Seriously, Eric is always the life of the party and his performance at this year’s show was no different!

Coming off the high of winning Album of the Year at the 2016 CMAs for Mr. Misunderstood,
Eric was joined on stage by Rhiannon Giddens, as he sang out “Kill A Word.” Projections of the words “empathy,” “happiness,” “love,” and “temptation” swirled across Eric and Rhiannon’s face as they belted out the lyrics to the seriously powerful ballad. It was so amazing to hear them perform the duet in the dark with the lights from the words glowing around them.
Eric has impressed us with how much he’s grown as an artist since joining the country music scene. The “Record Year” singer has over a decades-long career now and we couldn’t be prouder to see how far he’s come in the industry. His voice is definitely one of the sweetest. And sexiest. Ow! Ow! Way to rock the house this year Eric!
