Get To Know Eric Church
Eric Church has been creating a buzz for years in the world of country music. Church is a master of the stage. His Holdin’ My Own Tour in 2017 was the most attended tour in the world at the time, selling out every stop. Church wowed his audience with three hours of his own music every night without an opener.
This will be Church’s first time playing BCMF, so this is a festival you’ll want to make sure you don’t miss.

The famous duo, Florida Georgia Line, is one of the biggest names in country music. Their embrace of hip-hop and rock music allowed them to create easily accessible music, spreading country music to audiences it had never before reached.

Florida Georgia Line is making their first-ever appearance at Barefoot this year.
