After celebrating his recent chart-topping success with “Friday Night,” Eric Paslay has released his new single, “Song About a Girl,” from his self-titled debut album. He co-wrote the tune with Jessi Alexander and Gordie Sampson, which explains that most, if not all, songs are about a girl. 

“At least for most guy writers in country music, it’s a song about a girl. The first lines of the song, ‘This ain’t about tailgates, ain’t about bonfires, ain’t about souped up cars, water towers and drowning a bottle of Jack.’ That’s all things that everybody loves,” says Eric. “The fun thing is there’s nothing sexy about a tailgate, unless your baby is sitting in it. There’s nothing sexy about a bonfire, unless your girl is glowing in it. And I sure don’t think a water tower is sexy unless my girlfriend’s name is written on it…it was just fun writing that song about thinking about not clichés, but in a way, you always talk about these things and it’s all because of the girl.”

He’ll be performing several songs from his debut album when he hits the road on Brantley Gilbert’s Let it Ride Tour, kicking off March 27th in LaCrosse, Wisconsin.
