The WYRK/NAPA Auto Parts Taste of Country (#TOC2012)  is in 2 days.  This is probably one of the most anticipated TOC's that I can remember in my short career here at WYRK.  I'll tell ya, this summer is shaping out to be a pretty nice one.....Eric Church...Zac Brown Band in September.  If those are the only two big concerts I see this year....I'm set.  Getting back to Eric Church.  There are way bigger fans who have been following Church for a lot longer than I have.  They know the performer inside and out.  For those who don't here is...... Eric Church in a nutshell...LOL

According to, Eric Church is actually his middle and last name respectively.  It says that his first name is actually Kenneth.
