Meet Eric Paslay: Newcomer Tearing Down Walls With Self-Titled New Album – Exclusive Premiere [Watch]

Eric Paslay says he enjoys the anonymity that comes with being a new artist on a major tour. Each show is a chance for the ‘Friday Night’ singer to make a fan’s first impression a positive one.

With his debut album in stores and at iTunes Tuesday (Feb. 4), this newcomer is prepared to work even harder to build his fanbase. In this video premiering exclusively on Taste of Country, Paslay explains why he’s glad God made him “foolish” enough to play country music for a living.

“I think this album has taught me to not be afraid to be me,” the singer-songwriter says.

The 30-year-old Texan with the thick red beard enjoyed success as a songwriter prior to to ‘Friday Night’ hitting No. 1 on the country charts. ‘Barefoot Blue Jean Night’ by Jake Owen and ‘Even If It Breaks Your Heart’ by Eli Young Band are two of his successes.

“I’ve learned that a song gets heard if it’s supposed to, and a hit’s not a hit unless people hear it,” he says. Paslay describes himself as a craftsman who enjoys the process of creating a song, or working with wood on a new bench. With more confidence than ever, he’s in line for a big 2014.

“When you think might have hit a wall, just tear it down,” he adds. It’s tough to argue with that advice. Watch this full introduction to Eric Paslay, then sign up to win an autographed acoustic guitar.
