Eric Church has a few bells and whistles on his Blood, Sweat & Beers tour this fall, but you won't find anything onstage that's going to distract from his main focus -- music. He picked up that approach while opening for rocker Bob Seger a few years ago.

"Bob came out there with sound and lights, that's it; and when he walked out there the place went [super] crazy," Eric tells The Detroit News . "It was about the music, it was about the energy in the room. Those were the loudest shows I played that year, and I played with everybody."

Eric has now built his touring career to the point he's headlining those arenas where he once served as the opening act. Eric plays the iWireless Center in Moline, IL Friday night.
