Two days before the butchering, he made at the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

His debut album, Sinners Like Me, composed three singles on the Billboard country charts including the best 20 hits “How ‘Bout You”, “Two Pink Lines”, also “Guys Like Me”.
Eric’s manner of songs has been labeled as country rock, outlaw country, and southern rock. Church’s powers include Hank Williams Jr., Merle Haggard, Little Feat, The Band, Kris Kristofferson, Ray Wylie Hubbard and Waylon Jennings. Eric has also professed that many hard rock and heavy metal bands influenced his music, including Metallica, Pantera, and AC/DC.
On Wednesday night, he devoted his new song “Why Not Me” to Sonny Melton, who departed protecting his wife from the bullets.
At the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, the 40-year-old Church remarked two vacant seats where the Meltons had been ticketed to sit.
He acknowledged that he didn’t want to be at the Opry that night.
“And I didn’t want to play guitar, and I didn’t want to walk on this stage. But last night, let me try to get this out, last night somebody sent me a video of a lady named Heather Melton. And she was talking to Anderson Cooper on CNN and she had on our ‘Church choir’ tour shirt.”
“And he said, ‘What brought you to Vegas?’ and she goes, ‘We went there to see Eric Church because he was Sonny’s,’ her husband who died, ‘it was his guy, and we went there to see this guy,’” Church said.
“The reason I’m here tonight is that of Heather Melton, and her husband Sonny who died, and every person that was there. And I’ll tell you, I saw that crowd. I saw them with their hands in the hair, with boots in the air, and that moment in time was frozen,” Church said, “and there is no amount of bullets that can take that away. None!”
