Chuch previously shared his hopes for live music to return in late 2021.

“I think [there’s a] higher likelihood that we’ll be on a stage somewhere in the fall, late summer/fall, and then certainly into the fourth quarter,” he explained. “So, I’m looking forward to that.”

Although he admitted that things may start off slow, Church is “hopeful and quite confident” that live music will return in the coming months. 

“I know there may be some early stuff where we can’t be at capacity,” he acknowledged. “I get that, but I’m looking forward to being back at capacity and being, seeing people grouped up and arms around each other’s shoulders and just, I miss that. I miss playing. I miss the camaraderie. I miss going town-to-town and doing that. It’s just what I was born to do, and I miss seeing the fans.”

Church is gearing up to release his brand new, three-part album, Heart & Soul. Pre-orders for Heart & Soul are available to the general public now. The middle portion of the album, &, will be released as a vinyl record available exclusively to Church Choir members. 

Heart will be available on Friday, April 16, & will be available for the Church Choir on Friday, April 20 and the final portion, Soul, is set to release on Friday, April 23.
