Nashville recording artist, Eric Heatherly returns to The Historic Lincoln Theatre with The Chris Eger Band (pt. 2.) Two guitarslingers duel it out in a sequel to what was called by many as one of the best nights of 2017! Dubbed “Burnin’ in Mount Vernon,” this show promises to be bigger, better and once again a night long remembered. New songs, raffle giveaways and of course a show like only these guys can give!
A native of Chattanooga, Tennessee, Eric had paid his dues playing nightly for meager tips at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge on Broadway in Nashville. Shania Twain was sufficiently impressed with his chops to hire Heatherly to play lead guitar for her first world tour and to appear with her on the 1997 Country Music Association awards show. His years of dedicated effort were rewarded with a major label deal with Mercury Records that included a cover of The Statler Brothers’ “Flowers on the Wall”, the first of three singles from his debut album Swimming in Champagne, His take on country with a surf-rock feel found its way to radio and TV, showing up on CMT, “Austin City Limits,” and “Grey’s Anatomy.” Other laurels include receiving Music Row Magazine’s “Critic’s Pick” award and being named in Playgirl Magazine as “sexiest singer.”
Many fans of local stalwarts The Chris Eger Band will recognize Eric’s song “Wrong Five O’Clock” as a staple of Chris’ set. Eric has been a longtime guitar-hero to Chris since age 13, when Heatherly’s tour first came through the Northwest. In March of 2016, The CEB released the Nashville recorded “Show Me Where to Sign,” an album with Eric at the helm as producer. Now, these two guitar-slingers will share the stage for a surely memorable experience.
