Eric Church and Dwight Yoakam take over the Sprint Center on Friday, tickets still available

If you took the North Carolina twang out of Eric Church and replaced it with, say, a more neutral singing voice — perhaps laced with a smoker’s grit — the 37-year-old country star would probably have to jump genres. As it is, his pronounced accent is about the only thing keeping him on country radio.

On his latest album, The Outsiders, Church summons rock-and-roll gods with incendiary guitar riffs, arena-worthy drums and hair-whipping arrangements usually reserved for Bon Jovi and Def Leppard. Don’t be late for Dwight Yoakam, who opens the show with his honky-tonk rock.
