Eric Paslay Launches #AngelsInThisTown Movement For New Single
EMI Nashville’s Eric Paslay revealed original angel wings from artist Kelsey Montague during a tour stop in Denver, Colorado, this past weekend in support of his latest single “Angels In This Town.”
The life-sized pair of wings—which includes images of guitars, microphones and the Nashville skyline, a nod to the 6’4″ singer’s home and career—will be available for fans to experience and take pictures with at each of Paslay’s tour stops in 2016. Paslay used Montague’s original street art at 11th Ave. South in Nashville as the backdrop artwork for the new single, which will be featured on his forthcoming sophomore album.
Montague, who began her own #whatliftsyou initiative, was inspired by Paslay’s “Angel Visits” during his tour stops, where he visits local “angels” at hospitals, fire houses, police stations, Girls and Boys Clubs. The #AngelsInThisTown movement will also feature a website (AngelsInThisTown.com), presented by Dexcom’s efforts to raise awareness and support surrounding type 1 diabetes, for fans can share heroes and positive stories from their own lives.
