Eric Paslay Builds Homes and Country Hits

Eric Paslay is a great performer, an incredible vocalist and he sure knows how to pen a hit song. Five of his have reached No. 1 on the charts and we are pretty sure you know every word to them:

  • “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” (Eli Young Band)
  • “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” (Jake Owen)
  • “Angel Eyes” (Love & Theft)
  • “Rewind” (Rascal Flatts)

The smash “Friday Night," was his first No. 1 as an artist, and he can be sure that we will "rock together" when he hits the stage with Maddie & Tae, Cale Dodds, and Jerrod Niemann at Live in the Vineyard in a couple of weeks. 

Eric has graced our stage before. Here he is last November when he played alongside Hunter Hayes, Dave Barnes and Temecula Road for an Artist in the Round.

 

His latest single, “Young Forever," was partly inspired by Kelsea Ballerini and it takes you right back to your Peter Pan days where you used to sing along to “Never Grow Up.”

I hope when people are 100 years old, they go skydiving. I think this year I realized that nobody’s old ... One hundred years isn’t that long if you’re lucky enough to get there.

Not only does Paslay enjoy creating songs, but he also has a soft spot for helping the community. He supported Habitat For Humanity in launching a campaign called “Home is the Key,” building homes so more families have access to decent housing. Just last week, Paslay handed the keys of newly built homes to two single mothers. Read more about it here.

I love building things, from songs to houses. It’s a lot of fun, and both of those things are rewarding.
