1. He is nominated for five 2016 Academy of Country Music Awards!
This year, Church might be nominated for five ACM awards—including Entertainer Of The Year, Male Vocalist Of The Year, Album Of The Year, Video Of The Year, and Vocal Event Of The Year for "Raise 'Em Up" with Keith Urban—but this isn't his first brush with ACM glory.
In 2011, Eric won Top New Solo Vocalist Award, Vocal Event Of The Year Award for "The Only Way I Know" with Jason Aldean and Like Bryan, and Album Of The Year for his third LP, Chief.
