Eric Paslay was surprised with a plaque following his performance at the Grand Ole Opry on Tuesday (May 13th) to commemorate sales of more than 500,000 units sold of his recent No. 1 hit, “Friday Night.”
Eric wrote the song with Rob Crosby and Rose Falcon, and said it was an easy and quick song to write, mainly because of all the feel-good lyrics.
“You just think about all the things you don’t want to be. You don’t want to be a Monday morning just going back to something you don’t love and nothing is on the radio,” says the Texas native. “So, it was an easy song to write because you just put all your favorite things about a Friday night, getting off, getting paid, drinking lemonade, all kinds of fun stuff and being with your baby. So, it was just a fun song to write.”
“Friday Night” is featured on Eric’s self-titled debut album. He’s currently on the road on Brantley Gilbert‘s Let It Ride Tour.
