 GREENSBORO — “You’re not going to forget this night,” country music superstar Eric Church promised his fans when he rocked the Greensboro Coliseum last Saturday night. Church made his one and only stop in North Carolina for The Outsiders tour, playing alongside the Osborne Brothers and Dwight Yoakam.
At 7 o’clock, the Osborne Brothers took the stage. The brothers performed several songs such as “Let’s Go There” and its latest single, “Rum.” Dwight Yoakam played classics such as “A Thousand Miles From Nowhere” and “Guitars, Cadillacs.”
   At exactly 9:14 p.m., the lights dimmed and the crowd roared as the first chords of “The Outsiders” rang out. Screams continued as Church took the stage and lasted until the show ended two hours later. The audience matched Church line-for-line on every song and the musician was noticeably taken aback by the enthusiasm.
“Carolina,” a song that hits close to home for Church (since he’s from Granite Falls, N.C.), proved to be one of the best of the night. The concert ended with an acoustic performance of “A Man Who Was Gonna Die Young.”
Church, Yoakam and the Osborne Brothers put on an absolutely incredible concert — one that North Carolina will not soon forget.
