Sometimes when we interview artists, we don’t always get the time to ask the more “off-topic” questions which help us get to know the artist a little bit more.
We decided to get-to-know some of our favourite country artists a little bit by asking them some Quick Fire Questions.
Our first Quick Fire Questions interview is with the wonderful Eric Paslay who despite living in the US, always has a home here in the UK as we absolutely love him and his music.
Having written songs and received number ones from other artists such as Jake Owen (Barefoot Blue Jean Night) and Eli Young Band (Even If It Breaks Your Heart) , Paslay also has his own material with his self titled album, fan favourite single Young Forever and a live album on the way.
