ACM nominee Eric Paslay will be 'Dressed in Black' this summer

ACM nominee Eric Paslay will release his sophomore album Dressed in Black this summer on EMI Records Nashville.
He co-wrote all 12 of the album’s tracks, including the first single “High Class,” which debuted as the No. 1 most added song at country radio.
Produced by Marshall Altman, it is the follow-up to Eric’s critically acclaimed debut self-titled album that produced three hits - No.1 platinum-selling “Friday Night,” gold certified “Song About A Girl” and ACM nominated “She Don’t Love You.”

On the making of
Dressed in Black, he says, “I’m grateful that we are getting to celebrate some life in another album. I always strive for, as an artist and musician, something that lasts. Not just popular now. It’s not just something on a page, but it somehow finds you in a restaurant, or on a dance floor, or in your car alone that makes you go ‘what is that?’"
