If you've heard Eric Paslay's latest single, "Friday Night," on KNUE then you realize what a powerful and great voice this guy possesses. But Eric's talents don't stop at just his voice. This young, 6-foot-4 fiery red head has mad songwriting skills, too.   His songwriting credits include Jake Owen’s hit “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” songs included on Donny and Marie Osmond’s country set “The Good Life,” along with several cuts for Eli Young Band and Lady Antebellum. What's surprising about Eric is he came to Nashville to be an artist and not a songwriter.

Eric's influences are Rodney Crowell, Johnny Cash and Christian artist Rich Mullins. They all have on thing in common, they are storytellers.

Those close to Eric describe him as a gentle, "guys guy," a quality that draws people in and accept him instantly. He also loves performing, but is just as happy remodeling a bathroom or getting in the kitchen with his mom, Donna, and making kolaches.

Hey, does this look like someone who has a Texas show on KNUE? Hmmm! Click here to find out who that may be!
