“I’ve been doing this music thing for a while now; playing all over Georgia, theaters, college bars, country clubs, you name it. It’s quite an honor to see all the time, work and passion I’ve been putting in finally pay off. I’m proud to be named a CMT Discovery Artist and so happy they love my video for ‘Outskirts,’” says singer/songwriter Eric Dodd.
“This EP is reflective of everything I’ve been through as a teen and young adult, and is kind of my introduction to the world as an artist. I hope the lyrics, my story, will speak to a lot of people. A little partying, a little love makin, and a little heart achin’,” laughs Dodd. “’Fun’ and ‘Outskirts’ are party songs. ‘Burned,’ and ‘Relapse’ are true stories of heartbreak and ‘Rain Rain’ and ‘Damn Love’ are both lighthearted, and will even make you nod a little,” explains the Georgia native.
