Eric wraps 2015 with his first Grammy nomination as an artist with Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley and Dierks Bentley for “The Driver” in the Best Country Duo/Group category and inclusion in year-end Best Country Songs lists. Rolling Stone Country’s 25 Best Country Songs of 2015 counted “The Driver” and “She Don’t Love You” among its top songs. The feature claims “She Don’t Love You” “wraps an entire movie’s worth of story into a four-and-a-half minute song” while “Paslay turns in the vocal performance of a lifetime here, soaring on the choruses with a heart-in-throat intensity in his delivery.” “She Don’t Love You” also lands at #6 on Popdust’s all genre Top 20 Songs of 2015.
Eric recently concluded his touring year opening for Chris Young’s “I’m Comin’ Over World Tour” and this January Eric will perform as part of Brad Paisley’s “Crushin’ It World Tour.”
