Did a Bell Ring? Because Eric Paslay Got His Wings

Did a Bell Ring? Because Eric Paslay Got His Wings

It may sound like an odd request but when Eric Paslay needed a set of wings, he knew just who to ask. The singer/songwriter went straight to renowned artist Kelsey Montague—known for her original angel wing street art—and asked her to paint a set of wings for his upcoming tour.

Eric’s new single, “Angels in This Town,” has led to some inspirational work from the smooth singer, including his Angel Visits—where he meets local “angels” in the towns on his tour stops, including hospitals, fire houses, police stations and Girls and Boys Clubs.

“I’m so happy to be working with another creative who is also committed to lifting and inspiring others,” said Kelsey, who was inspired by Eric’s work.

1[1]The two worked on the wings together. Eric built the stands for the piece while Kelsey did the original work of art: a life-sized pair of wings, which includes images of guitars, microphones and the Nashville skyline, a nod to Eric’s home and career.

Fans will be able to check out the wings in person on each of Eric’s tour stops. You are encouraged to take photos using the hashtags #Angelsinthistown and #whatliftsyou to show support for both Eric and Kelsey. Who knows  you might find your picture on the new website created, angelsinthistown.com and possibly hear from Eric himself. Happy snapping!

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
