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!

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
