Eric Paslay, who wrapped the last decade with the #1 song on Country Aircheck’s decade chart with his penned hit “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” for Jake Owen, debuted a new song and music video last Friday, May 8th with the release of “Heartbeat Higher.” The song, written by Eric, Zach Crowell and Sarah Buxton, and features Sarah, is the first of more material anticipated through this summer by the Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter. The music video was shot by director Timothy Hiele in Stockholm, Sweden during Eric’s “Nice Guy Tour” late last year.
“‘Heartbeat Higher’ has been around the block with me a time or two,” shares Eric. “Some fans have even seen me perform it live. I’ve loved it since the day we wrote it a few years ago and I always knew I’d release it. Now feels like the perfect moment for this song and sharing this with my friend and cowriter Sarah Buxton is a dream realized.”
Chris Country Radio will gave “Heartbeat Higher” a world exclusive first play on Thursday (7/5) after 8am BST . Eric performed a sneak peak of the song and some of his hits, during American Songwriter’s Facebook Live series “Behind The Mic” last week and also on Tues 5/5, Eric will took part in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s weekly “Songwriter Sessions” on Instagram where fans posed questions.
