Telling the story of Eric Beddingfield is easy. He’s genuine and the real deal. Voted Independent Artist of the Year for 2012 from Music Row Charts he has once again made the top 30 with yet another single from his first major album.
Holding in the top 40 for 5 weeks running his latest single “Come On” broke the top 30 and hit number 28 this week. Having three songs from one album make the charts like this is not unusual, others have done it before, but let’s face it though, they are not ELB.
Eric Beddingfield is making news people. Wake up. This young man is hot and his music has stirred something inside country music fans that has everyone wanting more.
Touring with the one of the greatest legends in country music, George Jones, Eric is making a dream come true and living his dream of playing his kind of music and doing it his way. He’s showing the public that if you set your mind to making a dream a reality it’s only a melody away.
Reaching for the top is hard work and it takes long hours away from home and long stretches on the road but this doesn’t keep Eric from quality time with his beautiful family and from taking time to relax and unwind.
In one of our first interviews I asked Eric what was one thing that his fans might not know about him that he enjoyed doing while home, he said he sometimes likes to find a quite spot and watch the history channel for hours. Great way to unwind and educate your brain.
As a friend and fan of Eric’s music I can honestly say that when he performs he not only brings you into the song or into the music but when you leave the show you’ll be a fan for life. In May I had the opportunity to see Eric perform in Nashville at 12th and Porter and you can tell when someone loves your music because they sing along. Everyone in the audience knew every word and I think at times they were singing louder than him. That’s what makes a hit.
August 5th fans have the opportunity to see a great show at Elkins Motor Speedway in Elkins, WV, gates open at 1:00 with show time at 5:30 pm. For more information visit www.elkinsraceway.net to get your tickets so fans can see Eric performing as a special guest with George Jones. Eric also just finished up a show in Salem NC at Johnny and Junes as well as recording a new jingle for a hotel chain.
