Sunday night, EMI Records Nashville recording artist Eric Paslay was a surprise guest for Garth Brooks’ “World Tour with Trisha Yearwood” concert in Charleston, West Virginia. The pair recently met for the first time before Eric’s performance at the William Morris Endeavor Entertainment (WME) party for the International Entertainment Buyers Association (IEBA) conference, where Garth personally invited him to open a show.

“This past weekend was one for the books,” said Eric. “I got to hang with and open for a musical hero of mine. I can’t thank Garth Brooks enough for the incredible experience. No one does it better than him and it was a real honor.”

This Wednesday, October 26 Eric is set to perform “Angels In this Town” on NBC’S TODAY before resuming his headlining tour “Angels In this Town 2016” later this week. The tour runs through November and features special guests Adam Sanders and Courtney Cole.

Eric Paslay Inspires Joslin Diabetes Center Patients Before Show


Pediatric patients from Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston living with type 1 diabetes were treated to an unforgettable experience with rising country star Eric Paslay, who was in Boston for his Angels In This Town tour. Paslay was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 10 years old. He treated a group of pediatric patients, their parents and some care providers from Joslin to a special private meeting with him at the House of Blues right before hitting the stage. They spoke about their shared experiences as teens living with type 1 diabetes and even compared glucose numbers with one patient who had the same Dexcom monitor as him. He always checks his blood sugar before going on stage, and he was happy to report his number was “perfect”. Paslay told Joslin’s Dr. Michelle Katz how he wanted to be an endocrinologist until he was about 18 years old and decided to pursue his career in music instead.

The Joslin pediatric patients were thrilled to attend the concert, courtesy of Dexcom. Paslay, who keeps a glass of orange juice on the drum riser in case his blood sugar starts to dip, uses Dexcom’s continuous glucose monitor to manage his blood sugars while performing. His wife and other members of his team can monitor his blood sugar level remotely while he is performing to watch out for trouble

Paslay’s story inspired the patients, and their families and friends, with his personal example of how you can control your diabetes and live your dream.

“We are truly blown away by Eric’s kindness. His willingness to spend one-on-one time with our young patients and really bond with them about his own experiences with type 1 diabetes meant so much to them and all of us here at Joslin Diabetes Center who devote our lives to finding a cure,” says Dr. Michelle Katz, Jos

Eric Paslay Announces Headlining Tour “Angels In This Town 2016”


EMI Records Nashville recording artist Eric Paslay announced his “Angels in This Town 2016” headlining tour. The tour will kick-off on October 13 in Providence, RI and has fifteen tour stops planned with the possibility of more being added. Special guests on the tour include CMT award nominee Lindsay Ell, singer-songwriter Adam Sanders and country newcomer Courtney Cole. Check tour schedule below.

Paslay has been doing inspirational work with “Angels In This Town” – including “Angel Visits” in cities and towns as he tours across the country. He visits local “angels” in their organizations, including hospitals, fire houses, police stations, Girls and Boys Clubs, Habitat for Humanity builds and more – and he is thrilled to announce he will continue making these visits with his headlining fall tour.

Paslay has partnered with renowned artist Kelsey Montague, known for her original angel wing street art around the world, and together they have created a huge set of angel wings that will travel on tour with him. The wings are a special version of the “Angels in This Town” single artwork and a chance for fans to take their own pictures and spread Eric and Kelsey’s messages through their hashtags #angelsinthistown and #whatliftsyou. The wings and a brand new Angels themed website dedicated to spreading positivity are being presented by Dexcom, a partnership that has grown throughout 2016 and aims to raise awareness of type 1 diabetes and the benefits of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) for people living with the disease. Their shared goal of improving lives ties in with everything the song, and the corresponding “Angels in This Town” movement seek to promote.

Eric Paslay Releases Acoustic With Strings Version of “Angels In This Town”


Eric Paslay’s new single, “Angels In This Town,” hit radio this week and was met with an amazing response from early believers. Earlier this year, when Eric first started playing the song at shows he was inspired to deliver the message of the song in a tangible way by making visits to local “angels” in the towns he was playing. So far he has made visits to the Norfolk, NE fire department, Boys and Girls Club of Austin, TX and Toronto, Habitat for Humanity build in Virginia Beach, VA and the Ronald McDonald House at WakeMed in Raleigh, NC. Upcoming visits are planned throughout the rest of 2016, but will not be announced ahead of time.

“As we tour around the country, I’m so thrilled to be doing what we’ve decided to call “Angel Visits.” We’re stopping by different organizations where the employees and volunteers are truly creating miracles and impacting other people’s lives in the best way. The least I can do is go and thank them personally.” said Eric. “Good vibes are contagious, and I hope by visiting places like local Fire Departments, Habitat for Humanity Builds, Children’s Hospitals and so many others, we inspire positivity in each community and beyond. It’s a real honor for me to be around folks who are doing such good in the world.”

As a special treat for fans, Eric has begun to put together digital pieces that give a unique and behind-the-scenes look at the making of various songs on the forthcoming album. Fans will get to hear not only from Eric but also the other writers and learn about the process of putting pen-to-paper all the way through finishing a song. A story-behind-the-song video for “Angels in This Town” may be viewed below.

“Angels In This Town,” is written by Paslay, Corey Crowder and Erik Dylan, from his forthcoming sophomore album, Dressed in Black.
