EMI Records Nashville artist Eric Paslay is bringing to life the inspirational sentiments of his new radio single, “Angels In This Town.” The entertainer has been making visits with those in need during each tour stop. Thus far, the visits include: the Norfolk, Nebraska fire department; Boys and Girls Club of Austin, Texas, and Toronto; a Habitat for Humanity build in Virginia Beach, Virginia; and the Ronald McDonald House at WakeMed in Raleigh, North Carolina. Upcoming unannounced visits are planned throughout the rest of 2016.

“As we tour around the country, I’m so thrilled to be doing what we’ve decided to call ‘Angel Visits,'” says Paslay. “We’re stopping by different organizations where the employees and volunteers are truly creating miracles and impacting other people’s lives in the best way. The least I can do is go and thank them personally. Good vibes are contagious, and I hope by visiting places like local fire departments, Habitat for Humanity builds, children’s hospitals and so many others, we inspire positivity in each community and beyond. It’s a real honor for me to be around folks who are doing such good in the world.”

Maren Morris Teams With and Nashville Designer Lori Paranjape

Maren Morris may be a fan of soul-stirring music and classic cars, but she also has an affinity for interior style. The “80s Mercedes” singer has collaborated with online home furnishings and decor site Wayfair and Nashville interior designer Lori Paranjape. The team redesigned Morris’ East Nashville backyard and corresponding curated decor shop, which is available through Aug. 22.

The team created three outdoor living areas, including cabana lounge, fire pit area, and a patio dining spot. The vibe is accented with metallics and an iron chandelier.

“The Wayfair team is thrilled to work with Maren Morris at such an exciting time in her career as a country musician,” said Jane Carpenter, head of public relations for Wayfair. “As one of the world’s largest online destinations for the home, Wayfair is committed to helping people achieve a look and feel that captures their individual style and needs. To transform Maren’s backyard into a functional outdoor living space, we collaborated with the very talented Lori Paranjape who was able to create a relaxing setting where Maren can kick back when she’s not out on the road.”
