From the Appalachian Mountains to National TV, David Church has
found success despite all odds. He is outside the box, of
what Nashville defines as ‘marketable material.’ Being
successful in any business takes hard work and perseverance, but
in the music and entertainment business it takes even more.
Amazingly, without a major hit on mainstream radio or even a
record label, Church has millions of fans all over the world.
Church has been featured on RFD-TV’s popular show, “Midwest
Country” for over six years. His popularity throughout the
US, Canada, and now Europe continues to soar as he makes regular
appearances on the show and tours throughout the world.
Joe Jenson, producer of Midwest country continues to state,
“Over the past 6 years, David continues to be our most popular,
most requested artist. And the live audience continues to
support the shows at the theater. His shows are always a
Known for his uncanny ability to sound like “Hank”, David is a
singer/songwriter and Nashville recording artist, and also
performs and records his originals and other traditional country
David was born and raised in Lancaster, OH; a small town on the
outskirts of Columbus. The youngest of 14, David grew up
surrounded by country music and bluegrass. His father
taught himself to play the 5 string banjo and played at local
barn dances and picnics, where he performed some of the songs by
artists such as Uncle Dave Macon, The Carter Family, Jimmy
Rodgers, and Bill Monroe.
Several of his brothers and uncles also played guitar and sang.
David’s fascination with the guitar began as early as he could
walk and he began picking it up and playing around the age of 5.
Everywhere around him, the influence of country music began to
form strong roots in David’s life. As he began to learn to
play and study vocal techniques he was influenced by many of the
early country music pioneers. But it was "Hank Williams"
influence that formed the basis for his style of vocals.
David has been featured in numerous major country music
magazines including, Country Weekly, Country Music Report,
Nashville, Music Guide, Dreamwest, The Tub, Indie Islands, and
many others. He has performed with major artists from Gene
Watson, Lorrie Morgan, George Jones, and many others.
David performs throughout the world along with his talented
wife, Terri Lisa Church, who sings back up and lead. Terri
Lisa is also a published journalist and talented songwriter.
David and Terri Lisa were featured on a cruise sponsored by 2006
CMA DJ of the Year, Kevin Richards including major artists,
Ritchie McDonald (Lonestar) Jimmy Fortune, Kevin Sharp, & Brian
White. Performing together on the same stage, David’s
performance was met with a standing ovation.
Church attributes his success in the music business to the
millions of “true country fans” that are tired of what they hear
on the radio. “Although I feel there is certainly a place
for today’s modern country music, I think that the people that
supported country music and brought it to where it is today have
been forgotten about by the major labels and radio;” Church
stated. “The success that I have had has come from the
fans that so long for the traditional sound of country that they
have heard in the past, but no longer find in mainstream country
music. Those are the fans that have been forgotten.
I also feel that a lot of RFD-TV’s success can be attributed to
the country music shows that they have been airing, which go
along with the country and farm lifestyle. We are proud to
be a part of this family oriented TV network.”
ROPE – (Reunion of Professional Entertainers) David’s
performance at the Rope Spectacular during CMA Fest was met with
standing ovations by both fans and legendary country artists.
“All the members of ROPE including legendary artists recognize

highly recommend this fabulous performer.” ROPE President, Marty
RFD-TV The Theatre, Branson, MO - . Long time concert

bringing them back again next year.” Sullivan has been named one
