Eric Church takes over the Tivoli Theatre in Chattanooga, TN Monday and Tuesday night to record his first-ever live album.  The project won't be out until early next year, but Eric has put a lot of thought into trying to capture on the live album the feel of his early days playing bars and clubs.

Eric tells ABC News Radio, "It's a little bit different now.  We're playing big places.  We're playing arenas.  It's a different show than what we came up through in bars and clubs and theaters.  So, I wanted to go back."

Eric looks forward to having his fans up close to him singing every word of his songs during this two-night stand.  He promises those lucky enough to get tickets are in for a unique concert experience.

"I don't want to show up and play the show we play every night," Eric says.  "So, now it's a matter of what do we do those two nights that make it special in a way to thank the fans for getting us to where we've gotten.  I want to capture that energy."

Eric fires his Blood, Sweat & Beers tour back up Thursday with a show in Green Bay, WI.  Justin Moore and Kip Moore join him in the opening slots.
