Eric has performed on The Kelly Clarkson Show, filmed at the Grand Ole Opry house, as part of a special tribute to CreatiVets. Eric’s passion for helping veterans through music led to the release of “I’ll See You Again,” co-written and performed by Eric and released by Big Machine Label Group,

“It all started with 88 keys!”, says Eric. He began performing on an old upright piano at his parents’ tavern, The KORN KRIB, along with Sunday services at the Latham United Methodist Church. Growing up on a farm in Latham, Illinois, family, love, and hometown memories are the inspiration behind Eric’s music.

Touring across the country, Eric has opened shows for such artists as Chris Stapleton, Rodney Atkins, Lee Brice, Charlie Worsham, Phil Vassar, Clint Black, Jana Kramer, Craig Morgan, and the list goes on. Eric is signed with Bow To Stern Group and continues to release new music to his fans every 6-8 weeks through Bow To Stern Records and ONErpm distribution.
