Eric Church will launch his own exclusive SiriusXM music channel, Eric Church Outsiders Radio, on Friday, Nov. 4 on the SXM App.
Outsiders Radio will showcase music from Church’s career, including his catalog of nearly two decades that has earned him seven ACM Awards, four CMA Awards and 10 Grammy nominations. Curated by Church himself, the channel will be a journey through his musical experiences, featuring collaborations and recordings with friends along with behind the scenes stories. Listeners will also hear genre-spanning songs that inspire Church from artists like George Strait, Bob Seger, Ashley McBryde, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard, Aretha Franklin, Kenny Chesney, Bruce Springsteen, Brandi Carlile and more.
“We’re trying to be thoughtful about how we play the music and why the music matters,” Church explains. “This is about something that you actually go, ‘Oh, that’s cool. I haven’t heard that.’ Chasing that pathway is what gives me excitement about what we’re trying to do here with Outsiders Radio.”
The SXM App is available to subscribers on mobile devices and a wide variety of connected platforms, including smart speakers, smart TVs and streaming media players. The channel will also be available to subscribers on SiriusXM channel 61 from Nov. 4-6.
The exclusive channel is the latest in a longstanding relationship between SiriusXM and Church, who originally launched his monthly show, Outsiders Radio, on SiriusXM’s The Highway in February 2015. Outsiders Radio explored the singer-songwriter’s music influences with Church playing his current favorites, as as well as exclusive music from his own archives.
