Metallica + Eric Church, An Unlikely Pairing
An unlikely pairing, yes, but it's happening. I know this is old(er) news, but I felt like I needed to dig a bit deeper.
I love it when unusual acts get together and perform. Think Carrie Underwood and Steven Tyler, Lionel Richie and Rascal Flatts.... And now Eric Church and Metallica. Now, more than likely they won't actually be performing together, but I'm still thankful when bands think outside of their own genre and accept others. Especially from country music. Sometimes country gets a bad rap for being "twang-y" or "hillbilly-ish" but thankfully Eric Church will be at Bader Field this summer to play his little heart out to some heavy metal fans. And some country fans. And some comedy fans. As Jim Breuer and his 'Heavy Metal Comedy Tour' joins the bill as well.
And I think they will love him. After all, I am a country radio DJ, but I listen to everything. From Britney Spears to Dave Matthews Band to Led Zeppelin and the Beatles.
There's room for fans of all flavors. Kudos to Metallica for making a great decision.
Metallica's Orion + More Music festival comes to Bader Field June 23rd and 24th.
