NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Eric Church set a new record on Saturday night after 56,521 people attended his solo concert at Nissan Stadium.

The concert set a new record for attendance at the stadium. The previous record was 56,112 people in 2018.

Church is also the first artist in history to play Nissan Stadium alone as he did not have an opening act.

“I came here 15 years ago and I had dreams,” he explained of Nashville to his loyal Church Choir, “but I’m not sure I could dream this big. Tonight is a special night for me and you know this if you’ve been to any of our shows on the Double Down Tour… I’m gonna give you everything I’ve got all night long, and tonight is going to be a revival. I promise you,” Church said to fans.

As far as we can tell, he kept that promise.

Church played a number of his hits along with renditions of many of classics such as “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Night Moves,” “It’s A Great Day to be Alive,” “Sweet Caroline,” “Piano Man,” “Pour Some Sugar on Me” and “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll”.
