Eric Paslay has parlayed his reputation as a highly-respected Nashville songwriter into a career as one of the most promising newer artists in country music. The Texas native started playing guitar at age 15, and moved to Tennessee to study at Middle Tennessee State University, where he graduated in 2005 with a Bachelor of Science degree. He first made a name for himself in Nashville’s music scene as a hit songwriter, writing songs including Jake Owen’s “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” for Eli Young Band and Love and Theft’s “Angel Eyes,” and has also written for Lady Antebellum and Rascal Flatts. Paslay signed with EMI in Nashville in 2011 and released his self-titled debut album in 2014. He scored hits with “Friday Night,” “Song About a Girl” and “She Don’t Love You,” and in 2015 he joined Dierks Bentley in guest appearances on Charles Kelley’s debut solo single, “The Driver,” which earned them a Grammy nomination for Best Country Duo/Group Performance. In October 2015 Paslay released “High Class,” the lead single from his upcoming second solo album, ‘Dressed in Black.’
