Nashville, Tenn. – March 28, 2016 - EMI Records Nashville and ACM nominee Eric Paslay will release his sophomore album DRESSED IN BLACK this summer. Eric 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 and premiered on The Bobby Bones Show.
DRESSED IN BLACK, produced by Marshall Altman, 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 Eric shares, “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?’"
