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.

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.’
