It was a dream come true for Eric Paslay when he was personally invited by Garth Brooks to open up his World Tour with Trisha Yearwood in Charleston, W. Va., this past weekend (Oct. 23), followed by a performance of his new single, “Angels in This Town,” on the Today Show’s Citi concert series Wednesday morning (Oct. 26).
“This past weekend was one for the books,” said Eric in a statement. “I got to hang with and open for a musical hero of mine. I can’t thank Garth Brooks enough for the incredible experience. No one does it better than him and it was a real honor.”
Following his epic Garth moment, Eric—who is currently headlining his own Angels in This Town Tour with special guests Adam Sanders and Courtney Cole—headed over to New York for his Today Show appearance.
“I believe—with my faith and stories I’ve heard—I believe in miracles happening but it’s also great to go out and thank everyday angels for doing miracles in each others lives,” Eric told hosts Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee about the song.
