Eric Paslay Sprouts Wings for “Angels in This Town”

EMI Records Nashville

With everything happening in the world these days, Eric Paslay hopes his new single, “Angels in This Town,” can lift listeners’ spirits in the midst of some dark times.

“As of late, our world has been impacted by tragedy of all kinds,” the Texas native says. “I’m so grateful we can use [this song] to shine a light on all the good that happens every day in our world. I’m excited for it to be heard and for it to bring hope and positivity into people’s lives.”

While “Angels in This Town” will eventually end up on Eric’s sophomore album, Dressed in Black, for now, it’s available as a single at the usual digital outlets.

You’ll notice that Eric seems to have picked up his own pair of wings on the single’s artwork, which is actually a photograph of an original piece of street art in Nashville. The piece, by Kelsey Montague, is located on a wall at 11th Avenue South, between the Gulch Crossing and Velocity buildings in the area of Music City known as The Gulch.
