Watch Cam Surprise Ryman Crowd With Eric Church, ‘Country Music Jesus’ Collaboration
On Wednesday night (Sept. 26), Cam headlined the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville and brought with her a few surprise special guests -- among them, Eric Church. Readers can press play above to watch the two country stars collaborate during a performance of Church's song "Country Music Jesus."
Cam closed her Ryman set with Church's appearance, the Tennessean reports, though she did return for a one-song encore. "Country Music Jesus" comes from Church's 2011 album Chief, and was written by Church and Jeremy Spillman. The song, Church tells The Boot, "is a little tongue-in-cheek" -- a response to a critic who "[thinks] that we need to harken back to Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings -- to make that kind of music."
Church and Cam previously shared the stage in Colorado in 2016. That August, Church invited Cam to join him at one of his shows at Red Rocks Amphitheater, where the two performed Church's song "Like Jesus Does." At the time, Church called Cam "one of my favorite artists that's out right now."
Cam's headlining show at the Ryman also featured guest appearances from the Indigo Girls' Emily Saliers and Colbie Caillat. Together, Cam and Saliers performed "Come on Home," while she sang "Bubbly" with Caillat. The Tennessean also reports that Cam performed two brand-new songs for the crowd.
