Eric Church set Jimmy Kimmel Live! ablaze on February 10, performing a pyrotechnics-powered set on the late-night talk show’s AT&T Outdoor Stage. The SPIN cover star delivered a masterful double-header, spotlighting two tracks from his Essential new album, The Outsiders, out today (February 11) via EMI Nashville. The North Carolina-grown country star played the LP’s chest-thumping, outlaw-repping title track, then went wistful for the record’s second single, “Give Me Back My Hometown.”

Watch the flames and fireworks above, and find the power ballad below.
