The RFDTV network has grown by leaps and bounds and is now broadcast
to over 65 Million viewers throughout the US. Church has been featured
as a regular on the popular show "Midwest Country". It is
easy to understand why he is RFD-TV's "most requested" artist.
Amazingly, without a major hit on mainstream radio, Church has millions
of fans all over the world. Bruce Maier, the editor of a major music
magazine, Damn Good Tunes called David, "a rare entertainment entity".
He went on to say "he creates a visual presentation that is absolutely
dazzling to witness. He does something that 99% of all other artists
cannot do and that is stand on their own with their own music."

charts. And in September 2013, another song, "A Dime At A Time"
climbed to #16. In June, 2013, "With over a million artists in

A strong advocate for American made products, David and Terri Lisa made
the decision a few years ago to only sell American manufactured products
on their merchandise table. In April, 2014, The Church's joined forced
with "American Made Matters®" organization as members
and ambassadors. The mission is, "to educate consumers that buying
US-made products strengthens the American dream." And to bring
awareness of American made products and manufacturers to consumers and
strengthen the economy. American Made Matters® declared November
19th the official "American Made Matters Day". The Pennsylvania
House of Representatives, passed a resolution naming Nov. 19, 2013,
as "American Made Matters Day" in Pennsylvania. Plans are
being made to hold additional events in states across the US. And the
Churchs are planning an event to be either in their homestate of Ohio
or Nashville, TN.
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. Church's biggest influence was his Uncle
Stant, who played the lap steel guitar. He encouraged his nephew to
"never give up".
David has been featured in numerous major country music magazines including,
Country Weekly, Country Music Report, Nashville, Music Guide, Dreamwest,
Damn Good Tunes, Furious, and many others.
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. "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."
David performs throughout the world along with his talented wife, Terri
Lisa Church. Terri Lisa is also a recording artist/songwriter. She sings
lead and backup vocals. Terri Lisa is a published journalist.
