Eric Paslay


Singer-songwriter Eric Paslay joined Host Jessica Northey and the Country Music’s #CMchat community for a special Humpday Hookup Twitterview on Wednesday, May 6th. This chat was quite special for everyone involved for a few reasons: 1) Eric has a breathtaking current single, “She Don’t Love You,” climbing the charts; 2) he just tied the knot and we got to be some of the first to discuss his recent nuptials with him; and 3) this is our final #CMchat Twitter event of our third year in existence!

WOW! We had so much to celebrate with Eric this Wednesday!

While a lot of country music fans equate Eric Paslay to someone who wants to be, wants to be their Friday night, the chart-topping singer-songwriter has many more credits to his name than the catchy 2014 anthem. Eric has also taken many trips to the top of the charts by writing for his colleagues, including Jake Owen (“Barefoot Blue Jean Night”), Eli Young Band (“Even If It Breaks Your Heart”), Love and Theft (“Angel Eyes”) and Rascal Flatts (“Rewind”).

Now, Eric is sharing his beautiful ballad “She Don’t Love You” with the world, becoming the subject of much critical reception. We couldn’t wait to discuss the single with him (we LOVE it!) and hear what he is working on next. We were especially excited to find out what inspired “She Don’t Love You,” and Eric explained that he wrote the song with Jen Wayne and it was a song that found them and needed to be written. If that isn’t poetic, I don’t know what is.

One thing that was really interesting about this Twitterview is that a young artist who recently recorded and released a song that Eric wrote came by to ask a question. “Like Me Til You Love Me” singer Jordyn Stoddard swung by to ask Eric what it’s like to influence young artists like her, to which he responded that it is crazy for him to think about the fact that he has that kind of impact. I guess we saw a “pinch me!” moment happen before our eyes!

Another REALLY cool thing that occurred during this Humpday Hookup was an exclusive announcement about a song that he wrote with Steven Tyler, “Love Is Your Name” (Steven’s debut country single). According to Eric, “Love Is Your Name” will premiere on American Idol on May 13th! Tune in for your first listen to the newly signed Dot Records artist.
