It was a baptism by fire, for new country artist [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Eric Paslay[/lastfm] when he stopped by the WYCD studio for his ‘first ever’ radio interview! All ‘new artists’ make the rounds across the country when they first start out, to play their music and gain exposure to more country music lovers! Chuck Edwards enjoyed referring to Eric as a ‘virgin’ and tried his best to intimidate him by telling him he ‘had to keep all interview answers’ to 6 seconds or less! Eric survived and even sang one of the songs he penned for his debut album for us too!
First of all, we learned that Eric’s last name is pronounced ‘Pass-Lay’, not Paisley, no relation to [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Brad Paisley[/lastfm] here! Eric grew up near Austin Texas, and is an accomplished songwriter already, with a cut on[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Lady Antebellum[/lastfm]’s upcoming CD, and he also wrote [lastfm link_type=””]Jake Owen[/lastfm]’s hot new single, “Barefoot Blue Jean Night.” Eric also wrote or co-wrote every single song on his own CD coming out soon!
After getting to know Eric and hearing his ‘live in studio performance,’ , I am very anxious to hear his whole CD when it comes out!
