During a recent tour stop in Washington State, Eric Church offered up his take on a classic song by Pearl Jam. Readers can press play above to watch Church perform the Seattle-bred band’s hit “Better Man.”

While playing Tacoma’s Tacoma Dome on his Holdin’ My Own Tour, Church broke out his cover of Pearl Jam’s “Better Man” about midway through his second set. Although the song was never officially released as a single, “Better Man” spent a total of eight weeks at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock Tracks chart in 1995. Written by Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder while he was in high school, “Better Man” appears on the band’s 1994 album Vitalogy.

“That’s the best band I’ve ever seen,” Church told Country Countdown USA‘s Lon Helton of Pearl Jam in mid-2016. The country star had gotten the opportunity to watch the iconic band cut a live album during a performance at Nashville’s Third Man Records and calls the experience “one of my Top 3 favorite things I’ve ever done.”

One of Pearl Jam’s best-known songs, “Better Man” has also been covered by country duo Sugarland. Their version of the track appears on their live CD / DVD Live on the Inside, released in 2009.

Church’s Holdin’ My Own Tour — each night of which features two sets from Church and no opening act — is scheduled to run through late May.
